Christmas In a Nutshell

Christmas can usually be summarized in only one word: Food! This year wasn't an exception...

The first round...

What made this Christmas different to the earlier years, was our daughter. Although she couldn't yet undertand everything, she certainly enjoyed being surrounded by relatives and opening her presents!

There is also something else we will remember this Christmas by: the Boxing Day storm!

In the early hours of Monday, strong winds hit Southern Finland. At my grand-parents house, electricity was gone for six hours. But some, like my uncle's family, might need to wait until next year to get their electricity back...

Big branches came down from the pines outside my grand-parents house.

These trees fell down just on the other side of the road.
