Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2014

This year Christmas was relaxing 🙂 … We had such a calm, relaxing and also funny day with our girls Sarah and Hannah.Last year my girls woke me up at 5 in the morning. But this year we were really lucky. We got to sleep till 8 🙂

christmasHannah wished for a pink Christmas tree and here he is. All over in “pretty pink” … pink glass ornaments, pink stars and pink ribbons. And I crocheted little pink mittens.
