Oh, I don't know. It all looks very saintly. Of course that's what is expected of them - to be a model family - but I'd rather know whether this is real life at the palace. Imagine them at the end of a long day - the kids cranky, the parents really exhausted, everybody just wanting to prop up their feet in front of the TV...that's where true character would show itself since everybody can be nice and well-behaved for half an hour at a scheduled foto-shoot.
(The pictures are cute, though! )

Was it really last year?
I think Ingrid-Alexandra was only 1 year old (and Sverre wasn't born yet )when they took the baking-pictures, wasn't she??
They are a very cute family. I'm really looking forward to see pictures of the whole Royal Family under the Christmastree in the Royal Castel, with the King and Queen, the Crownprincely Family and Märtha's Family

They are my fave CP family. Such wonderful kids.

Ingrid has grown so much! I mean, she looks way younger in London because of what she was wearing. But now that her hair is showing, I think she looks great!

Marius and Sverre will be heart-breakers in the future

CP Mette-Marit asked Princess Ingrid Alexandra about who she was making that Christmas ornament to, and Princess IA answered that it was for Santa Clause. And then I think Princess IA said she wanted Santa come glue with her (don't remember quite exactly, saw it on the news yesterday) and CP M-M answered something confirmative.

But the most interesting was the dialect Princess IA had. I've never heard her speak before, and she has a facinating mix of her mother's Kristiansand dialect and her dad's Oslo dialect.

Translation of article from www.aftenposten.no

Ingrid Alexandra: ”I want to do it myself!”

Princess Ingrid Alexandra which will be three years old in January, is as will-strong as most three year olds. “I want to do it myself, “ she said with strength when dad Haakon tried to help her with her glue stick.

With her parents, big brother Marius and little brother Sverre Magnus the young heir made Christmas decorations at Skaugum this week. The three year old, which has become very good at talking the past year, was mostly interested in pearling and gluing links of glossy paper together, and was unwilling to accept help from the adults.

But she would like Santa Claus as an assistant. “Santa shall come and glue with me” the young lady claimed when mum Mette-Marit brought up the theme of Santa Clause.

Otherwise, she is convinced that Santa will come on Christmas Eve and stand outside, as she remembered him doing last year.

Yawned

The one year old Prince Sverre Magnus yawned through large parts of the Christmas decoration séance and was mostly busy tasting the decorations which he curled up in his little, tubby fingers.

In honour of the photographers Ingrid Alexandra tried to place the Christmas ornaments on the almost hairless head of little brother, which absolutely wouldn’t be decorated this way.

The little Princess has already become used to press photographers, and clowned about and squeezed her eyes shut when she was asked to smile to the photographer.

Tradition

The Christmas decorating took place in the breakfast room at Skaugum, which lies in between the dining room and the library in the representational part of Skaugum. In the window hang gingerbread hearts and bikini dressed gingerbread ladies, clearly decorated by the family’s youngest.

Last year too, the press was invited to be present when the Crown Princely family made Christmas decorations at Skaugum, so this can be counted as a fixed tradition as long as the kids are little, as it was when Crown Prince Haakon and Princess Märtha Louise were the same age.

Tuesday there were a Lucia-parade in the Princess’ kindergarten – with mum and little brother as audience, but this wasn’t open to the press.

Thanks KikkiB for the article, it is nice for us english only people to get a glimpse at the conversation of the family. IA is soooooo cute and what a personality. It seems like only yesterday when she really didn't talk much. I believe she will do Norway proud one day. I feel very blessed to be able to watch these children grow up. Thanks everyone for all the postings.

Wow, those kids sure have grown up! IA looks a lot more like her mom than I used to think- when she was little, she seemed like a little Haakon. Sverre looks like a little old man- so cute! I love how the CPs have don't pose formally for their Christmas photoshoot, that they just seem to invite us into their home for a while, sharing their celebrations with the rest of us- it lets us see them as a family, just a mom and a dad, with their three kids. It's so heartwarming this time of year, and so like them.

The children are so adorable!

And wow! Haakon's voice is really deep. I wasn't expecting it to be THAT deep. He doesn't look like the type of man to have a voice that deep! I always thought it should be a little softer and gentler. But I think he has a really nice voice!
