Finnish but I found it also in English here. (It's located in England, I don't know if anyone sells them in the USA.)
What encourages me to cook more, though, is Jonah, who is a wonderful helper. He made meatballs with me the other day, and at bed time as I asked for his high and low points of the day, for a high point he said without a doubt, "cooking with you mom!". These things are more important to kids than we think.

|"Someone, someone!" says Mouse.|
|Vanilla Bunny, a gift to someone who likes bunnies.|
|"I made a crown because Jesus is the King!" Jonah declared.|
|Zechariah with wrinkly hands|
Other than that, we have been making gifts. Jonah helped me with some of them, like the bunny.
Planet of the Apels, that had a list of children's Christmas books and reviews for them.
We also bought "The Very First Noel" short film and enjoyed it, too. There is one thing that bothers me about it, though…the wise men went to see Baby Jesus in the stable, whereas Scripture tells us they went to the house of Joseph and Mary (Matthew 2:11). Like with all books that have this common mistake, I just tell my kids while reading it how the story *really* goes.
There is so much to write about, and not enough time! I'll be back later, whenever I have a chance.

|This wall magnet calendar has been very nice for Jonah for learning and to plan his days out. I got it from Target last year when we were visiting the States.|
|We practised some stitching around the pumpkin, since Jonah has been asking for me to teach him how to sew and knit. He did very well!|

|Daddy enjoys this book almost more than Jonah.|
|These guys grow six times their size when you put them in water. Jonah got them from cousin E for his birthday.|
