The ENTIRE Family

Yikes, I disappeared once again!!! Since those last photos of snow, we've had yet another storm! This one only producing 6"! It's going to be a long winter!










Just got back from a quick trip to Chicago to celebrate Dad's 75th birthday! He threw an awesome party for himself! Got to see a lot of friends and relatives that I haven't seen in a really long time! That was really great to catch up with everyone! And it was awesome because the ENTIRE family was in one place at the same time! Here is our photo above!!! It's sad to say, but I'm officially the shortest member of the family - how depressing is that? Katie (behind me) is the tallest at 6'1"! She WAS on her tippy toes, really!!











This weekend we plan to put up our Christmas tree... really! If we don't, it won't get done until December and in my book that's a crime! I LOVE Christmas and I would consider having my tree up 6 months out of the year if I wasn't voted down by the other family members! I think I get the love of the holiday from my Mom!

We are headed to the mountains for the holiday... our normal tradition! This year we ate our turkey earlier this month, so we're having pizza! Is that so wrong? It's what Melanie wants!! I'm fine with it - pizza and pumpkin pie! Yum!! Looking forward to 5 days of skiing... or at least that's the plan! You never know how good the snow will be this early in the season!

What are your plans for the holidays?

I think pizza is fine for Tday. It's a day to be thankful, no matter what you are eating! To work around everyone's dinners with their other family, we will be celebrating on the day after Thanksgiving and the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Both meals will be traditional.

We are having dinner with my older sister & her in-laws. It's become a tradition for us to be together since our parents died.
Steve's family does nothing.......literally. It's really quite sad.
Nice family photo - a real treasure!!!
