 Saturday night we attended a Christmas party for our Daughter in Laws side of the family.

It was everything Norwegian with some of us Swedes, Germans and Dutch thrown into the mix.

There were 28 of us laughing and probably eating far too much, but enjoying each others company.

6 were kids and most have grown into teen-hood, except for 2 sisters aged 3 1/2 and just turned one.

Most of my photos weren't very good.  No matter where I sat or stood it seemed to be all backsides, movement and weird facial expressions.

So I'm only posting this one of Santa and Paisley.  She really wasn't scared but happy to finally get off his lap after getting a toy.

Precious memories in the making.

And now I have to start getting my "Christmas Debris" together too.

Norwegians eat a lot of fish - right?
That little gal was so cute with Santa!
That is why you are blonde?

Hi Sue. What a special Christmas celebration. My dear friend Kris that I've know since childhood is Swedish. They still hold to many ofthe traditions. I think that's very special. Our tradition is my mom's English Toffee. The girls, and granddaughters get together to make it. Lots of fun, and how nice to have a large bowl of English Toffee on the table.

I got inspired by what I read from a lady called Tara Omar on blog spot on how Dr Itua cure her HIV/Aids then they were lettered below that says he can cure Cancer so I pick his contact on the testimony she wrote then I emailed Dr Itua hopefully he replied swiftly to my mail then I purchased his Herbal medicine also it was shipped to me here in Texas, I went to pick it at post office so he instructs me on how the treatment will take me three weeks to cure my Leukemia Disease, Joyfully I was cured by this Dr Itua Herbal Medicine.
