Merry Christmas everyone. It has snowed last night and the ground is all white and magical with -10 degrees outside. This morning feels that much more special as it is our first Christmas as a little family. We all gathered in bed, Siena was allowed too because it is her birthday today and she is turning two years old. We have some rice porridge in front of us that is topped with a sticky date and plum sauce. To make the sauce, you basically boil some dates and plums together with some seasonal spices (such as cinnamon, cloves, orange zest) and a touch of brown sugar, if needed. I topped it with some dried apples and more cinnamon. We have Christmas music playing in the background and it’s time to open a few presents that are under the Christmas tree. The little one has his Christmas hat on and we are still in our pj’s with hubby. We are going to spend the holiday with our families (we are naturally all taking a covid test before hand to be on the safe side) and enjoy some time with our loved ones. This moment right here is something I wished for last Christmas and it feels quite magical to have this moment to ourselves.
