Ray of sunshine, 3 months

Being 3 months is such a magical time. All of a sudden the crying changes into smiling. Chatting starts. Naps get longer. Feeding is easier. Life is good, really good.

Christmas at the police station

 Like magic, the police station turned into gingerbread. The cars of the employees were still parked at the side and the sign stating that it was still indeed the police station, stood firmly at the front. But a text had appeared on the roof and inside a pile of timeout chocolate bars for the police to enjoy on this busy busy Christmas.

Thank you for keeping our town safe through out the year!

Merry Christmas to all you naughty

Oh I have been so busy that I haven't had time to post anything here, and the hectic life continues for a little while over here. But for now I'd like to wish you all a very merry Christmas. This is our Christmas card this year and I would have wanted to send it to all you lovely readers. I love your comments, they really do make my day!

And the Finnish version:

Merry Christmas!
Hyvää Joulua!!!

Infinity scarfs

It's Christmas present time. I know I'm ruining the surprise to some of my friends now, as these scarfs are nicely wrapped under their trees waiting to be opened on Christmas, sorry.

I saw this type of  infinity scarf on pinterest and thought I'd have to give it a try. Then I made one and fell in love. Mum and I got so excited. I made heaps for my friends and mum, after returning home, has made these for her friends too. I miss sewing with her and have to post these things that I was able to make while she was here, as at the moment I'm finding it hard to have time to make anything.

After I wrapped and sent these scarfs in to the world, I still had couple left over. So they are on sale on my facebook page, if you are interested.

Christmas excitement

 Emma's first Christmas calendar. I had a clear vision of what it would have looked like, but as it turned out, our fire place is not long enough for my ideas. Now the little pouches are very crowded. But it doesn't take away the joy she had, when she got to open the first little bag today. Neither does it take away the cries when she didn't get to open another one.

Merry, jolly Christmas waiting time to each and everyone of you!
