Cousin E's Confirmation

Last weekend was non stop fun as we travelled to Olso to meet up with family to celebrate the Confirmation of Tim & Tae's eldest Norwegian cousin E.

In Norway teenagers are Confirmed at 15 years old. It is seen as a right of passage and involves sessions with the local church over a couple of months. Most teenagers in Norway are Confirmed.

Friday and Saturday nights were filled with catching up, laughter, eating and drinking!

On Sunday the big day arrived and we all got dressed up and headed to church.

Afterwards, we went to a local hall. The food was wonderful. Tim was especially impressed with the smoked salmon wraps, while my favoutite was the scallops wrapped in Serrona ham.

E has grown so much in the last few years and his speech demonstrated how far he has come:) 

We are all very proud of E and can't wait to see where the future takes him!!!
