Two days before Christmas we got to go to my mom's house and have a Finnish feast!
She made my favorite Finnish potato bread (top) and rice bread (bottom)...
This is the kind we ate almost everyday while in Finland and I even brought some home!
Next step is to learn how to make it.
|My mom is always sure to get fresh fruits and veggies in.... the smoothies were a hit!|
|Cousins- Addie, Elli, Ryder, Elliott, Benny & Lincoln|
Next, we acted out the nativity.
The boys looked soooo funny and cute in their wisemen/ innkeeper outfits.

Elli was Mary and Bailey was the angel.
It was cute to hear all the kids reading their parts so well.
Adam and Brian narrated.

Trying to scare people from the closet. Funny boys.
I remember hiding in there when I was little too.
Look at all the red! (I didn't even help the boys get their clothes that day.)
Merry Christmas! Hyvää joulua!
