In our family we don't do big or expensive gifts, but we always find something small, nice and lovely. This year I got especially nice things which I want to share.

Lots of pictures behind the cut )

For everyone who enjoyed the gift wrapped house I went and took some pictures at nighttime. It was even more awesome than I had imagined.

Since I won't have time for the internet tomorrow I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas right now! Hope you'll have a wonderful time with your family. The angel and miner belong to a co-worker, apparently the candles didn't survive the heat in summer. I thought it was hilarius. And the house is in my neighbourhood - I like the idea!

I tried to make fannish cookies today. It didn't go quite accordingly to plan.

I had found this fondant in three colors, which you can knead and also mix for other colors. But in the end I didn't cover many cookies with it as I think it may be quite sweet. And it was sometimes hard to apply and didn't want to stick.

To get you into the right mood: This video was recommended to us by John Barrowman. Apparently he went to college together with the singer.

It says this is her real-life spouse and child. It's just cute, and a nice little twist there as well. And the song isn't bad either. Very jazzy. Love it!

Enjoy!

I've filmed the family dog which sings "Deck the hall". We love especially the yowling at the end ;)

Also, has everyone seen the EDEKA clip? This really sets up the mood. Very touching:

I was just talking to [personal profile] colej55[Unknown site tag] about the difference in American outside decoration. But it seems my neighbours have stepped up their game!

Today I came home to this:
