This year my parents and siblings decided to have a holiday party. We had a great time with a soup buffet and an ugly sweater contest won by my brother, Scott, for his Pittsburgh Steelers sweater. My sister posted pictures of the ugly sweaters on her blog. Mark played guitar and sang and my nephew, Taft, was mesmerized by his guitar playing. We had a dessert buffet provided by my sister, Stefanie, and a viewing of “Small One”, the Disney short that my Dad worked on when he was at Disney Studios. We also had a Nativity play. I borrowed costumes from my mother-in-law and showed everyone a scrapbook page from my Christmas book illustrating the last time we did a Nativity play in 1999. Mark and Kylie reprised their roles of Mary and Joseph, Brady was the baby the last time but this time he was a donkey. The other little cousins weren’t around. Brian was a shepherd that time but he was absent this year on his mission. We had a great time and lots of fun together.
