Christmas with the Boldrin Bunch on Dec. 20th, click here:
Christmas Eve at our house with immediate family:
The chefs are cooking up a delicious meal:
our little taste tester:
Cooked pasta prior to homemade sauce topping..
"Wow, a fish holder for my goldfish"

"I want to grab that necklace, please let me do it"
new camera lens makes great bokeh
Christmas Day was spent with our son Chris and his girlfriend Lenzi and her family. It was so great of them to graciously host us all (22 in all): There was one large 17 pound prime rib roasting on 2 rotisseries and also some was baked in the oven - delicious!

Lenzi: I now know where the spelling of her name originated - her grandparents last name is Enz.
Amanda, one of the many cousins:
Elizabeth, another cousin:
Uncle Keith:
Keith's mother Jean:
Grandma Lois, Grandpa Ernie (who worked at AG too), and Joe:
Grandma Lois:
Lenzi's mom Darci - now we also know where Lenzi got her beautiful blue eyes, from both grandma & mom
Sorry that I didn't capture everyone, I guess I'll have to capture them next year...

This really was a puzzle created by Chris for Lenzi's Uncle Scott - 4 layers with 488 screws that had to be removed to arrive at his present. They may have thought it looked like this as they were working on unsrewing it....

10 on 10 December - not....

I didn't have a photo op day today - the day started off early with a 6 month teeth cleaning, then off to the bank, Staples, Target, a 1:00 meeting at work with a health insurance broker, QFC, Bartell's, back home for a lengthy phone conversation with another broker, invoicing work, and it's now 7:30 pm and I just finished eating pizza while watching an online episode of Glee... Geesh!

But I do want to share this photo. Does anyone know what kind of bird it is? On Wednesday I heard several thumps at our front door which caused our dog Louie to run down the hall to his hiding place in our bedroom closet.... When I opened the door, this bird was on our front deck. I quickly ran to grab my camera. He tried to fly into our living room windows, but finally flew off into a tree. I'm guessing that it looked awfully bright & warm in our house, or that he was hungry.

A surprise birthday party last weekend was a success for this gal. At this point, she doesn't know that she's having a party at her place. A very calm Hood Canal:
Here are the guys getting ready to cook and make a gigantic delicious salad
Keith, Chuck, Joe, and Rick: The girls - Karla, Cat (birthday girl), Janet, and Pat:
Oh, the food and the wine:
