Photo Hunters - August 25 - 2007

We have some traditions in our family that makes 4 generations very HAPPY.

Here is a representative of this tradition. Yezz, we were all around around the table - making traditional Norwegian X-Mas cakes. And you can all see how this tradition goes from generation to generation. With joy and happiness. You should know how proud my Mother (88) was, when we told and showed the photos of Seb making cookies for her. Nearly teardropping.
My mother is 82 years older than Seb. They play well together, when togethered.
That's my contribution to HAPPY

PHOTOHUNTERS - what's that?

That's really a nice picture and also the tradition. Unfortunately we don't have any other generation left and no future generation either. The latter will happen I hope at least, lol !

There really is something to be happy about. Sharing the good in life :-)

...and it's fun how something that makes you happy, can be tear breaking!

My mother always laugh so the tears drops down her cheeks.

I still have some family traditions to pass to my son. I enjoy the times when we prepare for festive celebrations.

I would like to see what a Norwegian X-mas cake look like.

Great post and a lovely tradition. Your Christmas cakes look very different from our British Christmas cakes if that's what the picture shows

Le bonheur c' est aussi la tradition, la transmission des savoirs faire et les échanges intergénérationnels! Ok?

There's no generation gap between grandparents and kids is there?

That's a lovely photo, Tor, and the little one looks as if he's having a lovely time.
