Wow, let that be a lesson to you kids: If you forget to log out of your blog, someone might write a lovely Christmas post before you get the opportunity! That was my aunt Sigga, who (along with my Amma) has hosted a beautiful and cosy Christmas for us.

I just looked through all the photos I had on my camera, there is definitely some comedy gold on there, but I´ll try to keep it minimal here... The rest will go on my flickr, I promise!

I made kitty angry but luckily she was still cute.

Amma making the rice pudding. It was a really good one, too. She ran out of almonds, though, so we used a piece of rock sugar instead... It worked pretty well, Ross found it just before it melted completely, so he won some Yule-lad statues! Usually the prize is a box of Quality Streets, but I think this is a much better idea... Plus we had some Quality Streets anyway (see above), so it was all good.

Sigga´s house looks so good with all the lights and candles and Christmas decorations! And dinner was amazing as usual.

We even got snow, although there´s only a little bit at the moment! It´s really windy still, but it´s great to look outside and see white!

Aw, thanks Vicki, I'm glad you read it! It's a pretty good way of keeping in touch with everyone, I think.
