Ronny and I traveled to Colorado this year for Christmas. Hello mountains!
My uncle hosted Christmas Eve at his house and we had some great food and good conversations with my aunts, uncles, cousin and Grams. Unfortunately, Mama got the flu bug and had to stay home. :( But we were able to video chat her in a few times.
We used Grams’ Lennox Christmas china – a great tradition! We also had some other Swedish Christmas traditions mixed in for our Christmas dinner. One of them is courses – Grams usually had a five-course Swedish meal – we only had three this year, but it still counts as a tradition.
We usually eat Lutefisk – white Swedish fish – but this year was prime rib….delish!
For desert we had the traditional Ostkaka (grrr I didn’t take a picture! It is a Swedish cheesecake), peppakakor and sugar cookies.
New this year was a gift exchange for all of the adults. Cousin Katie of course got her own gifts. :)
It was a great time with family!
