I had a wonderful Christmas.I hope you did too.I worked but I still did not miss all the joys of the season.I enjoyed the excitement and joy in the eyes of my daughter when we decorated the house and the Christmas tree,when we made Christmas crafts and gingerbread houses with her friends.When we brought her Christmas present home,the little Guinea pig Herbie,when she huged me and told me how lucky she was to have us for parents.It brings me so much joy and happiness.Those were the precious moments of this Christmas I would never forget.

I work on Christmas but at the moment I am enjoying a wonderful day off at home.The plans for today:to make a ginger bread house with my kid and her little friend JJ.If it turns out nice I will take a picture and post it. But just in case I am not able to blog later I wish everybody Merry Christmas and a lot of joy during the Holiday Season.

Meet Herby,the newest member of our family.He is a black and orange Guinea pig,still a baby and extremely cute.He is calm and nice and is getting used to his new home very fast.A Guinea pig was #1 on my daughter's wish list for Christmas."I want to prove to you ,Mom,that I can be responsible and take care for a pet."-she said.We convinced her to start with a hamster,because we heard the guinea pigs could be mean.But when we went to the pet store yesterday we fell in love with Herby and changed all our plans.We bought him right away and we are not sorry about that.Everybody at home is so excited and my girl is dizzy from happiness.

I can't get enough of it.I want to show you all the pictures of that night walk. A wonderful day at home,today.Good night sleep,hot coffee in the morning,walk to school with my girl.Some more Christmas decorating,bill paying,laundry doing and washing dishes.In the afternoon talked to my mom on the phone,went to the thrift store in town and then cooked meatball soup for supper,my family favourite one.Did I mentioned before that soups are my favourite meals?The cherry on top of this evening were the cookies my daughter and I baked and decorated.It takes a lot of convincing,begging and nagging from behalf of my daughter to make me bake cookies.I am not a good baker and I also try to stay away from too much sugar.But today I said yes and we had fun.For beginners like us they turned out pretty good.

Last night we went on a walk around town to enjoy the Christmas lights our neighbours decorated their houses and yards with.It was a real fun and joy for all of us and especially for my little girl.Even my step son came with us.You know how hard it is to involve a teenage boy in such kind of activities.I took a lot of pictures and here is a collage with some of them.

Happy first of December to everyone.Exciting month full with joy and happiness.Love the magic atmosphere but I don't know why my mind is bringing me back to the last summer. Took this picture in the inner yard of my old school.Can you see the mama dove?
