The fourth year in a row now, I´ve been helping my sister Astri in her shop. It´s our own little tradition, and it´s so nice to spend this time together, talking and working together. Here is a picture of Axel and Karoline, visiting his parents house, getting the last presents ready.
There are so many ways to decorate a Christmas tree. Here is mine.
