We made Æbleskiver for the first time last week. They are really easy to make and soooo delicious!
These pictures are making me hungry. Really hungry.

Tivoli was decorated with tons of Christmas decorations, and of course the little elves were everywhere.
We planned to go to Germany to see the Christmas markets last weekend, but our plans changed so we booked a last minute trip to Göteborg, Sweden. This city was DECKED OUT for Christmas!
We heard that the biggest Christmas market in Sweden was in Göteborg, so we knew we had to go. The market was held in an amusement park, similar to Tivoli.
Lights and decorations were up everywhere you looked--it was so festive. (It was difficult to get decent pictures in the market due to the crowds.)
There were handmade goodies and decorations. These elves are very popular in Scandinavia.
At the market, Aaron and I had the best hot chocolate in the world--hands down. It was made from real chocolate, but not rich. It was flavored with vanilla and cinnamon and the homemade whipped cream had a faint flavor, too. I could really go for one of those right now!
This was as close as we were allowed to get to Santa. Ethan is not too sure about that guy.
It was bitter cold in Sweden, but luckily there were hand warmers all over the market. They really warmed up our digits in a hurry.
We told Ethan that he could go on the carousel and he insisted on riding on the elephant.
On the way back from the market we stumbled upon this outdoor ice-skating rink, with hand warming stations of course.
There were lights and decorations all over the city and often traditional candles in holders in windows.
We went to a flea market right before we left on Sunday, which was really fun.
Aaron's parents are coming for Christmas and we can't wait! We have been baking a bunch and freezing all the goodies. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!!
