Christmas Eve

Yesterday we celebrated Christmas at my parents' house, there was lots of good food, pressies and family fun!
I decorated our tree, how cool is this dinosaur decoration?

In our family, we have a tradition of wearing silly christmas hats, the collection keeps growing each year!

In Sweden it's tradition to eat roast ham on Christmas Eve...
As well as smoked and "gravad" salmon.

James was very excited about the food!
Then of course we have lots of different types of amazing herrings...
My sweet cousin Julia.
I made more mintkisses...
As always, it was wonderful to come home and spend time with my family, that's the most important thing about Christmas after all!

The dinosaur ornament is amazing... as are the silly hats- I think the best Christmases are the ones with warmth and silliness.

Merry Christmas, Lisa!

this looks like it was a lovely holiday. Random question: since you're swedish and your hubby is english- how does the whole language thing with the fam work? Does everyone speak english??

To Emily:
Yes everyone in my family speaks English except one of my uncles, when we see him we have to translate but it's no problem. James understands a little Swedish but only knows how to say a few phrases :)

I love the crazy and fun hats, what a wonderful family tradition!!!!! I'm trying to convince my folks to start taking pictures with "ugly sweaters" because it never fails, somebody always shows up wearing something that's less-than-stellar ...... we'll see about 2012!!!
