- Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

St. Lucia Day
St. Lucia Day is celebrated in Sweden on December 13th. Since I am part Swedish, I have decided that we shall take part in this tradition this year. I am very excited! Mandy will play a special role in that she is the oldest daughter and she will have the honor of wearing the crown of lights and serving the family breakfast. Katie will also have a little crown and be able to carry a candle. The girls will dress in long white dresses with a red sash. I'm not sure how authentic we will be in the recipe department, but we will enjoy something delicious! I found the cutest St. Lucia doll craft on-line but the kits are sold out!:( I will have to get an earlier start next year. We will make crowns and learn about the history of St. Lucia this week. In researching the holiday I came across the art of Carl Larsson. HIs paintings (most done of his family) are absolutely precious and I immediately fell in love.
