Christmas in the Swedish Country

Sometimes a snowy christmas feels like a little christmas gift from someone up there. Or something like that. People just seem to get really happy by being surrounded by white, cold fluff, myself included.
This year, the weather on the 24th couldn't have been better. I'm talking sun, blue skies, layers and layers of crispy white snow, enough of it to make you feel as if it was just there for you and yours only. It looked something like this:


I finally got what all those frosty plastic apples in the stores are supposed to be!

Oh, thank you all, it was really beautiful too! This is about an hour outside of Stockholm, isn't that cool? But we really lucked out with the snow and the sun this year, it's always a hit or miss situation over here. But 2009 is ending well:)

See, that is why I actually like winter. Its this early spring that is so painful... cold, rainy, wind.
Thank goodness for warmer weather this weekend
