Some things just have to be done to get that good Christmas vibe going, and we did a very important one today: We baked gingerbread cookies. I made the dough from scratch this year and it was so much yummier that the one you buy (yes, we ate it while baking, it's compulsory!), never going back to the pre-fabricated stuff. So us girls cheekily waited until Falk was taking his nap, (yes, very cruel) and then the baking was a go. The Christmas music was on, the sun was flowing through the windows, it was really lovely. Just as we finished up, Falk woke up right on cue, and we all rushed out to sledge down our hills one the snow. One of those perfect winter days.
