Thanks to my brother Torben and my sis-in-law Kirsten, who arranged everything, we had a GREAT Xmas eve. I got to celebrate Xmas with my Mom for the first time in 7 years!
Monique took tons of pictures and posted the best of them on her blog. I took the liberty of stealing the post for you to enjoy:

Greetings to all! We spent our Christmas with Torben and family. Since I'm not much of a fan of this Holiday, I must say that spending it with the Petersen's was wonderful. It brought back only one other Christmas memory when I was about 4. A time where I new that I was loved by my grandparents, and that being around them meant everything to me.
As usual, I took tons of photos, but can only post my favorite.
Nicely set table.
The succulent ducks.
Torben is a good cook.
Julemand came to visit us.
Kids lighting the candles on the tree.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
Of course, it's hard to get a nice picture of the photographer, but I did manage to (kind of) find one in my sis-in-law's photos. Yup, that would be her in the background:
