as it's already december, i can admit that i'm excited for christmas!






 It's the Finnish Independence Day, so we've been off school this Monday and Tuesday. So good to have a few slow mornings (and of course remember the veterans who fought for our land, they deserve all the respect! :)). Today I've been crafty, making Christmas cards and wrapping presents. I still need at least another day with the cards but I have to say I've been quite a productive lassie today! The scarf, in the photos below, is a Christmas present for mama, finished it last month.

And of course, after the crafting, I've watched the president's party! Mainly, it's just people shaking hands with the president for hours, but there's something about it.. Suppose you'll have to be Finnish to understand this, but I watch it every year:)
