Christmas Eve Flurries

Ivan and Matteo rolling marzipan

Not the snow kind of flurries, but an activity flurry. I have the amazing good fortune to be married to a man who is an incredible cook and baker. Ivan is a wonderful man, the kind of man who makes brownies as comfort food (an act much appreciated during my pregnancy). On Christmas Eve, he was busy making his family's linze torte recipe, chocolate almond toffee and marzipan.

The boys helped me make a few last minute gifts...

a playsilk for cousin Elodie

wool felted soaps for Aunt Karina and Grammie

and I finally finished the recycled sweater lap quilt I made for Grandpa Ed.

I don't think Santa's elves could have been any busier :)
