We light one candle tonight

we light one candle tonight
( I know it's the same photo as last year... I'm a bit lazy today ;) but we
are using the same table runner and the same candle holders this year.)

Så tenner vi ett lys i kveld.
Vi tenner det for glede.
det står og skinner for seg selv
og oss som er til stede.
Så tenner vi ett lys i kveld.
Vi tenner det for glede.

We light one candle tonight
We light it for happiness.

Christmas lights

It's the first Sunday in the advent, and the kids are already started to count down for
Christmas :) The Christmas curtains and lihgts are up. We're almost done with the presents and I am so glad that we have all December to just be together, decorate, light candles, bake cakes and cookies, craft christmas decorations and so on. I do have some small things I need to knit, but that's just fun.
I must put together the kids advent calendar tomorrow. And we are having a "activity calendar" this year too. It's my way to make a stand aginst all the shopping now before Christmas. I really do belive that the kids thinks that it's great and more fun to do something together rather than getting a chocolate or a present each day in December!! So I've desided to blog along with Merete on her Countddown for Christmas, showing you what've done each day :)

And I'm not along to do this kind of advent calendar :) Here are some ideas.
Fancy Elastic
Monkeyin' around

  4. Thank you for the links. We are also celebraters of Advent. I haven't gotten the candles yet, but think the way you've done yours is lovely.
