Vietimme toisen puoliksi suomalaisen perheen kanssa vahan vappua sen jalkeen kun koululaiset paasi koulusta. Siella oli tehty simaa ja mina tein tippaleipia. Ja oli vahan sitruunamuffinssejakin. Herkkua oli. Lapset sai leikkia keskenaan. Yksi prinsessakin joukossa liihotteli ja ekaluokkalaiskaverukset touhusivat kylmassa saassa ulkona. Brrrrrr! Huomenna normaali koulupaiva. Onneksi jai viela vahan tippaleipia herkutteluun.
PS: Kun kuvasin tippaleipia (lattialla) niin poydan alla vaani kaveri etta joskos mamman silma yhtaan valttaisi. Oli valmiina rakettina hyokkaamaan sielta. Tosin kun kuvaa otin yritti olla kuin muina miehina. :)
We have perfect Finnish vappu weather. +5C and it's raining. YIHAAA! ;) You know that there's no kinf od First of May celebrations here in US. It's a normal day. No one else but Finns and other scandinavians know about this and acknowledge it. I'm trying to keep bringing the Finnish celebrations and traditions in our house so that they girls would know about them but it's hard when no one else is celebrating.
We decided to celebrate today with another half Finnish family after school ended today. They had made sima (traditional drink for this celebration) and I made some tippaleipa (literally translates to drop bread). To best describe it it's like fried dough or funnel cake but crispier. And we did have some lemon cup cakes. It was all yummy!
The children got to play together. One princess was flitting about and the first grader buddies were playing outside in the cold weather. Brrrrrrr! Tomorrow is a normal schoolday (when in Finland it's a public holiday). At least we have few more tippaleipa to enjoy.
PS: When I was taking photos of the tippaleipa (on the floor) I had a litty buddy under the table ready for the moment when mummy's eye is on something else and he could charge like a rocket to get a treat. However, when I was taking picture of him he tried to be so cool and just minding his own business. :)
