Christmas Eve

We had our Annual Christmas Eve Open House and we have a condo full of friends and family.  It is always so nice to have mom and dad and the family all together. Fun catching up with my nieces and nephews and their growing famlies. The only sibling missing was my oldest brother Mark....who is spending xmas at home in NY this year...

During this past year, My nephew Tony and his wife Shannon had the first Great Grandchild for mom and dad.  Meet AJ !  AJ is the official first baby to ever attend our Annual Christmas Eve Open House. It was a little over whelming for him..but his mom was there to comfort him.

We had a wedding this year.. my niece Mary married Shawn.
Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Shawn Allen...and their first appearance at our home as a married couple.

My niece Karen completed her culinary program this fall at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.
Congratulations Karen. (Karen is here with her boyfriend, Richard) Karen made some yummy chocolate mint cookies for the open house...Karen can bake for me any day!!

My niece Heather just completed her first semester at Trine University in Indiana. This is her first visit back home since she left in August.  Welcome home Heather...

Mom and Dad celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary in September.  
Love you Mom and Dad...thanks for providing a Happy Home!

So glad to have my brother Tom, sister-in-law Judy and kids Allie and Mike. 
Allie is in her senior year at college in VT and Mike is home from NY for the Holidays.

And of course it is so nice to have my son, Scott and his girlfriend Mary, home for a month for their winter semester break.  (Scott and Mary celebrated their 7th year of dating this that is something to be really proud of..since they started dating at age 15)

Good Food, Family and Friends...a fun time was had by all.
This year I made 2 salmon pies...since they always seem to be a hit
