Family traditions

One of the many family traditions on my mom’s side is to get together for a lefse making party before Christmas. Lefse is a Norwegian food that is basically a potato tortilla and it is one of the Christmas Eve dinner staples. If there isn’t lefse on the table along side of Grandma’s pickle and olive tray …. it can’t be called Christmas dinner!

Joell and I didn’t have a job to do so we decorated Grandma’s tree.

 Next family tradition is with my in-laws who get together for a cookie party. The cookie recipe has been passed down the generations and it is a fun tradition to sit around the table singing along to the Christmas music and making a big mess!

Colleen always wins the award for most creative decorating 🙂

What family traditions do you have?
