Christmas Eve - Part 1

After the Family Graveyard, where we lit the Candle lights for our beloved late ones, we went to Church, Uranienborg, where we used to live near by for 14 years, in down down Oslo.

Then we went to Niklas and Maria and Sebastian.

My Mother was there. And as written: Sebastian with my Mother with her Grand Grand Son. I think that was a very special and memorable moment for both of them.

Here Sebastian asks my Mother what is in her purse. Hahaha. Kids are kids.

Here you see Anna wishing my Mother Merry Christmas, and my Brother to the Right

From left: My Mother, Brother, Ingelin, Sebastian (Click to see him) and Solvi

Modern decorated X-Mas Dinner Table. I like the colours and Style;))

Well, we had to attack the Dinner - right?
I'm not known for eating too much. I prefere to taste even though a X-Mas dinner might be very tempting (not to mention all the memories just after WW 2). At least, you here see what for the past 150 years or so, has been very common in SE Norway for Christmas Dinner.

We had to - by free will - sit down and enjoy the Meal.
(Let me tell you: Niklas and Maria did the Traditional X-Mas dinner Top Class).
Can you see how Ingelin and Sebastian enjoys it, while Niklas is still busy?

After Dinner, what happened next? Santa, of course.

We all had been very kind, at least everybody said so, and Santa was ---- what was he? Generous or not?

Haha - that's another story.
Stay tuned.

That's a lovely Christmas dinner with your family. Now, I miss my family while looking at these photos. I should have been eating svineribbe eller lutefisk if I was already home during Christmas probably next year then.
