Barbara's dad, Dennis.

Christmas day was a lot more calmer, but I did drive up to Boston and back, twice, to pick up and drop off my mother.

Christmas Eve

My mother opening gifts.

My sister Mary and her husband Tom.

My sister Nancy and her husband Maury discussing strategy during the Yankee swap.

I stopped over briefly at Barbara's fathers house before I headed up to Lowell to my nieces house. I didn't get home until 11:45 that night. I was zapped from all the driving.

Tiffany's Snowman Cakes

Tiffany went into a baking frenzy right before Christmas and made two snowman cakes and a killer cheesecake.

Snow Storm

These photo's were taken two days after the storm.

This storm came the evening of the 19th and we ended up with almost 2 feet of snow. Luckily it was the light stuff so the plowing and shoveling wasn't too bad.

Early Christmas

Jay and Jennifer.
Brandi and Thomas with Bella looking for scraps.

Having a large family makes it difficult for all of us to get together during the holidays. My son Thomas was heading to Virgina with Brandi so they could be with her family on Christmas and my daughter Jennifer was going to be with Jay's family on Christmas. So we got together on the 19th to exchange gifts at Barbara's house.
