Aunt Jill gave Clara a new outfit for Christmas! She is so great and I think Clara looks so cute in it!

It was Baby Clara's 1st Christmas so I wanted to be sure to get some fabulouse photos of her with the gifts, family, etc... I took one photo (this one) and my battery went dead. When she grows up and asks why I didn't document every second of her first Christmas I will tell her that one is better then none.

Today is Santa Lucia Day. A holiday of Light. It is a Scandinavian tradition where the youngest girl of the home goes around dressed in a crown of candles and a white robe with a red sash. She wakes everyone singing carols and gives freshly baked rolls. Lauren had given me a crown and I made scones because they are quicker! If you have heard of the American Girl doll Kirsten, she celebrates it in Kirsten's Surprise. It is fun and a tradition that I hope to continue!

This past week we started Clara on rice cereal. She liked it the first day but every other day she made lots of "this stuff is gross" looks. Maybe it was a novelty the first day? She has been interested in food from the time she could see it so I decided to wait no longer.
