Happy December!

The advent candles - to be lit on each of the four Sundays before Christmas. But we cheated today because Tony's family came for an afternoon of Christmas-ness.

I love the smell of oranges and cloves = Christmas!

Danish and English combination on the tree = Snowman baubles (which Tony bought last year) and garlands of Danish flags.

The tree and marzipan ready for making sweets. Nephew could barely wait to get started making the sweets. Everyone else was having lunch and he kept saying "can we make the sweeties now?" "I can make it myself". He he, funny stuff.

Marzipan sweets. Everyone had a go at making some. Yay! And when they left, Tony's parents said "see you same time next year*", which means that now we have a bona fide tradition! Yipee!!

*we will see each other before then, obviously. ;-)
