This weekend, the girls and I decided we wanted some Swedish Christmas food. While I made Swedish rye bread (Jeremiah's grandma's recipe) and Swedish meatballs, Miah and Zahana made saft glogg.
And Swedish apple pie and pepparkakor. Miah had some good practice with dividing both recipes in half and measuring.

Larkin made sure we had a Swedish flag on the table.
Mr. Pathetic didn't enjoy the food as much as some of us!
But everybody enjoyed the desserts. (Well, I enjoyed smelling them. I'm not on GAPS anymore, but I'm not eating gluten or sugar.)
I tried out some authentic Swedish coffee and had some rice pudding. The coffee wasn't really significant, just more difficult to prepare. I think I'll stick with my coffee maker.
Later, we took the kids to pick out a Christmas tree.
Jeremiah got the kids some potted spruce trees to decorate and plant later.

The kids love to play with the little animals.
