Family Christmas party

On Saturday night we had the Christmas party for my side of the family. We all met at Terri's house. To keep things easy, we had pizza for supper.
.


Here are Laura, Heather and Bob waiting for the fun to begin.

Bob and Arianna are busy laughing at something, or someone!

This is my Dad and step mom Ann, showing a few of their gifts.

If you have read my blog in the past, you know that Santa sends letters to certain family members. Those who are on the "naughty" list receive a letter from him. These letters are given out after the gifts are opened and are read aloud to a laughing audience. Although Santa may be disappointed in someones behavior, he really has a good sense of humor and writes a pretty funny letter. He usually gives a small gift along with the letter to get his point across. This years letter recipients are:

My brother, Duane
.


My sister, Cheri
.


and Heather!
Don't you agree that they look like a naughty bunch? The amazing thing is that Terri didn't get a letter this year. Santa must not really know everything, after all!

Oh Oh Oh are you going to get a letter next year for bad photography. That picture makes me look totally evil (don't you say a word!)
It was a fun night though!

Ok, so I don't know your daughter or your brother Duane, but I can't believe for a second that Cheri is on the naughty list.

Santa has made a big mistake!
