My children are all so excited to finally use the lovely gifts they recieved last year from our sweet friend Emma and her family, who live in Norway! (Authentic Swedish St. Lucy Crowns, a Maiden Light, and Star Boy Hats and Wands for all our children!)
Our Santa Lucia bread is ready and I didn't even kill the yeast this year! Apparently I usually heat the milk too hot, and our bread doesn't rise very well... So, this year, I called Amy and had her walk me through it. It turned out better than ever and was SO easy to make this year with the help of Amy's old Kitchen Aid mixer! :-)
The older girls have their white nightgowns, and are very anxious for morning to arrive! And I am looking forward to a piece of that delicious Santa Lucia Bread!
