{pretty, happy, funny, real}

Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life.

I thought I would take this opportunity to share a few more pictures from this year's Santa Lucia Celebration!


The girls all looked so pretty, dressed for our little Santa Lucia Celebration


Very, very happy that we ended up baking St. Lucia's Braided Bread this year.  The other surprise treats, a jar of Lingonberries imported from Sweden (purchased locally) and a darling little Santa Lucia Doll for our sweet girl who was celebrating a name day, were a happy addition as well!


Our little "Star Boy" was so cute, as always, even when yawning.  He was very excited to be having WHITE BREAD for dessert.  Our little picky eater's favorite! 


It may not fit me (ever again!) but my pre-maternity white t-shirts, paired with a ribbon from a Gymboree Christmas gift box, make a perfect Santa Lucia gown for an almost two year old!   (All you have to do is pin the neckline in the back, so it's not too loose.)

Visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more pictures of contentment!


  1. Simply precious pictures! How memorable for your family.

  2. Beautiful! We talked about doing something similar, but didn't make the time. I'm inspired for next year. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love that St. Lucy stuff with the lighted crowns - it's a beautiful tradition.
