Family Christmas Party #2


For the past 12 Christmases, we have had a family Christmas party with all of Terry's kids and all (2) of my kids (just so you know, I consider them all my children but sometimes it just makes the explanation of who's who easier). Where was I? Oh, right, they all come over and we make our own little mini pizzas. I look forward to these pizzas all year.

This year, we had it all planned and then that stupid snow storm hit and we were ONE family short. Spencer and Erin (which also means Milo, Isabel, and Keeler) had to delay the drive since the freeway was shut down. Josh and Royan didn't make it either.

So...the rest of us pizza partied anyway. Melissa brought the twins (Olivia and Lyla), Erika brought Tyler and Oscar. Abbie and Forrest brought Eli and Audrie all the way from downtown New York City (Manhattan). Mel Rae brought me. Terry brought Ali, Mac, and Leo.

Here are a load of pictures from that evening (there are many, many):
