{advent calendar, snowmen, an elephant, the best muffins ever...}

Finished making our advent calendar. I'm so done with the traditional red/green Christmas colors.

We made some t-paper roll snowmen.

Such a simple thing - a snowman made out of cardboard - yet I love it so much.

T-paper roll elephant.

Love, love, love this crayon/glitter watercolor/acrylic paint fingerprints snowman.

Saw this online and I had to make one to see if I could do it.

Delicious Muffins

2 cups (5dl) all-purpose flour
1 cup (2,5dl) sugar
2 tsp (10ml) baking soda
2 tsp (10ml) cinnamon
1/4 tsp (1-2ml) salt
2 cups (5dl) carrots, shredded
(I buy mine already shredded to save my fingers)
1/2 cup (125ml) raisins
2 apples, shredded or finely chopped
3 eggs
2 bananas, mashed
2 tsp (10ml) vanilla

Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Grease or line 20 muffin cups with paper liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the carrots, raisins and apples.

In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, mashed bananas and vanilla. Stir the egg mixture into the carrot/flour mixture, mixing just until moistened.

Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

Try not to eat too many. :)
