Here's our Lohipirakka (salmon pie), our traditional Finnish Christmas Eve dish. We asked Daphne if she knew what a salmon was. Her answer? "A fish that migrates." We were all impressed.
Christmas morning was a happy zoo. The children all received presents they liked. The dolls and doll clothes were a big hit. Zachary is thrilled to have his own doll, so he doesn't have to play with Sister's dolls.
Johan enjoyed playing with his brother and older cousins.
By Christmas night, I realized I was coming down with something. Today is my birthday. Why do I always get sick for my birthday? I just hope I don't give it to anyone.
On a brighter note, I hope everyone has a wonderful 2017!
