Wrapping, Opening, Eating

These are a few pictures of Christmas :)
We had three nights of Christmas Dinners..
One with Grandpa and Aunt Patty,
One with Jim & Jeanette and their kids and Grandpa (and a quick hello from Aunt Patty)
One with the Walters family & Grandpa ;)

Family Time

(we all missed Mike and Kathi & Heather but we understood.)

Sam and his presents.. church pants & pj's and socks and books from Bestemor & Aunt Patty and planes & legos from us.. AND the SPRUCE GOOSE from secret Santa. We got our "Jule Pakke" package from Bestemor Astrid (Rune's mom) a week or so ago and waited to show them to the kids til Christmas eve so they would have more fun things to open :)

The girls got matching dresses and socks and dolls & pj's from Bestemor! books and hair bands from Aunt Patty and Tinkerbell's from momma and daddy and Santa too. They all got a Yellow ride on toy from our secret Santa too. It was a much bigger year than I thought it was going to be. We have had kindness shown to us by so many people with cookies and visits and love.. Christmas is a wonderful season with great dreams and blessings.

CHRISTMAS EVE dinner with Grandpa and Aunt Patty. We had a nice roast and every one was well fed.

I really felt like it was a nice year..I was able to do everything with out getting sick or being worn out(which nver happens to me you so I am going to count that as yet another Christmas blessing! :0) HO HO HO

It looks like you were able to spend a lot of quality time with family. Your kids look very happy. I like how you take pictures of all the details. I need to start thinking that way too! :) Glad you had a Merry Christmas.

Your family is so cute! I was looking at those pictures of your girls, and thinking how they will be the girls that everyone hates because they are soooo pretty. You and Rune make beautiful children. What a great Christmas you had.

It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
