I wanted to wish all my friends and family a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
Plus, I'll share a few photos from our Christmas Eve Celebrations. We have a tradition in our family of Dancing around the Christmas Tree on Christmas Eve and Singing Christmas Carols . . . in English and Danish.
Here's the tree we danced around this year.
We pulled it out away from the walls so we could all hold hands (kinda like the Whos Down in Whosville;) and dance around the evergreen
Actually, the family has gotten so big we barely walk around the tree any more. But it's a fun tradition.
Then we have to remember the Danish Dinner we had. Smorgasbord Open Faced Sandwiches. No turkey or ham in this family. It's old traditions this year.
Then we all sit down and enjoy the feast.
Then it was opening presents (a lot of them were homemade-which I think makes them even better)
And back home to celebrate my brother and sister's birthday
My sister asked for a Weight Watcher's Birthday Cake so this one was homemade in a hurry.
We lit the candles and had them make a wish
Then the two of them (because if you hadn't noticed they're getting old) worked together to blow out the few little flames.
And poor little Sasha was a little overwhelmed by all the activity so she curled up in a corner, underneath the tree, with her best buddy Tigger
Then we all went for a walk down Peacock Lane
And, now, it's time to celebrate Christmas!!! So Merry Christmas to All and God Bless Us Everyone :) and if you're looking for more gifts, pop over to my cyber friend's site: Christian Farley's Blogspot to enter a book giveaway here's the link: http://www.christinafarley.blogspot.com/2011/12/9-book-giveaway.html then you just might have more presents coming after Christmas
