So this is me and my Christmas tree to celebrate Christmas with:)
Just joking because my youngest daughter came home from Mexico and she preffered to celebrate Christmas with me, although it was tough enough to choose between me and her grandmother, cousin and aunt in my husband's side, which we used to celebrate with every Christmas.
But this Christmas, we were invited by my sister who lives nearby to celebrate Christmas with them which made this Christamas special in it's own way, as my daughter described it. It was her first time to celebrate Christmas with them.
Anyway, after attending the mass, which I do every Christmas eve, we drove to my sister's house.
We are are now at the entance of their love nest.
"God Jul" means Merry Christmas
Sunset at three pm in winter time.
And here is my sister and Kamilla!
My sister invited Cynthia a friend with her two adorable daughters Gina and Helene to celebrate Christmas with us. First time too!
Together with us is Otelia. My brother in law's mother. She is 92 years old.
Hope my brother in law forgive me for publishing this picture. But have to remember this memorable moment.
And I want to thank him and my sister for all these foods that they prepared for everyone.
Home made desserts!
I baked a bunn for Pavlova cake and the young ones decorated it and the young once at the background. Feeling young huh sister? LOL
As you can see!
To be eaten with " multe krem and krum kaker". Norwegians Christmas dessert. Krum kaker ( cones) made by my brother in law.
Anyway, after dinner we talked about what we want to thank God for or special things that happened to us lately. And it was very special to hear the youth tells their unforgettalble moments this year and a 92 year olds precious moments. We didn't notice the time.
But before we open the gifts, we take turn reading the birth of Jesus Christ. And this is the highlight of the season. The birth of the Son of God.
Gina reading two verses after Alf, me, Kamilla and Helene!
Her mother's turn!
And my sister at last!
And with that, I want to thank God for all the gifts I received this Christmas!
And for these lovable people who sent me special greetings!
