Christmas 2011 - A Retrospective

Sean pours the Christmas champagne. Photo op by the rather spectacular Beverly Hills City Tree. Family portrait. Noah gets a race car. Having a chat with Grandma and Mormor. Christmas tree shopping with Daddy. Christmas Eve at our place. First ever Christmas gift. Eli the Elephant in his new ride. Christmas tree shopping with Mama. High Five! Christmas Eve at our place.

Noah's first Christmas, and it was wonderful - possibly my best ever. Mormor came and stayed for three weeks, we celebrated a cosy Christmas Eve Swedish style at home just the four (five) of us, drinking mulled wine, munching on ham and opening presents from the folks back home. On the 25th we woke up early-ish to drive over to Grandma and Grandpa's for bagels with cream cheese and lox on their terrace. We had a great day there with lots of gifts, music and play. A sumptuous turkey dinner was followed by a long walk on the beach with the dogs. Lovely. The only thing missing really was my brother and his little family... Oh and some snow. :)
