He is now legally considered an adult in Finland, which means he can drive, vote, drink, enter military service and pay for his own bills!
On Christmas Eve we went to my in-laws for dinner. After dinner, we exchanged gifts with them.
When we got home, in keeping with Scandinavian custom, we opened our own gifts and those that had arrived in the mail. However, Mattias decided to only open 2 and save the rest for Christmas morning.
Bruno was trying to attack Stefan’s new hat.
Joel looks happy!
Somebody got his own q-tips!!
Christmas morning, we got up and skyped with Dad and Steve . . . the kids opened their stockings and Mattias opened the rest of his gifts. Then I spent the rest of the day leisurely getting ready for our Christmas dinner. Stefan’s entire family came as well as a few of Sam’s friends (26 people in all).
Mattias wanted to carve the turkey. He thought I was taking too long . . .
Cousin M was a little shy at first . . .
Dessert . . .
And now Boxing day is almost over . . . Tomorrow Sam takes his written test for his driver’s license and I will try to get some exchanges done (plus have the ant-theft magnet removed from Sofia’s new coat!!).
Hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas.
