So even though it wasn't December 25th, we had a lovely little (early) Christmas in the country.
It even snowed for us.
I made my usual Christmas morning cinnamon buns...
We bought clear glass ball ornaments, and painted them ourselves...
Then we all ventured out into the forest to cut down a wild Christmas tree.
Finding an appropriate tree in the wild is actually a lot more difficult than we expected. They're all so big and awkwardly shaped.
But that's part of the magic.
In the end we found a rather
funny unique looking pine tree.
And we chopped it down to size.
We then made a little fire with the wood we brought with us,
and we celebrated with hot cocoa & cookies,
and of course, coffee with baileys : )
Even though it was oddly shaped, the tree ended up looking great.
And in the end it was a magical Christmas, despite it not actually being Christmas yet.
