We hope you all had a merry Christmas! We did! We started with Christmas Eve at Else’s house. Magnus came in and got right down to business examining and tasting all the presents.
Dinner was ham and fingerling potatoes followed by the traditional Christmas Eve dessert, ris a’lamond. Else won the first time in many years. Magnus gave out high-fives to all.
After dinner we took the obligatory pictures by the tree. Aren’t we cute?
And Dana read us the Christmas story.
We opened our presents and Magnus made sure to help corral the wrapping paper.
The next morning Santa had brought us some gifts so we opened those before going to church with Else. It was a nice (and very full) meeting.
After brunch we drove down to Salem for Christmas dinner with Ivan and Terry.
The table was set beautifully for a dinner of spare ribs and all the fixings. Many thanks to the various cooks who helped out in the kitchen!
We didn’t get a chance to get a picture around the table before we were done eating; we were just too excited about the yummy food!
Merry Christmas from the Jensens!
