HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM ALL OF US!
Here's the 1998 portrait of the kids:
We're the Champlin, D'Antonio and Paynich families, and we love the holidays, so we wanted to wish all our friends a very happy holiday season.
And Bridget's "official" Christmas picture for 1998:
We celebrate Yule as our religious holiday and Christmas as our secular holiday, so we get to have lots of celebrations throughout December.
December 21: Celebrate Yule/Winter Soltice with a ritual.
December 24: John's Christmas Party at Work
December 24: Visit Grandma D's for the "Italian Fish Thing" (real name: Feast of the Seven Fishes)
December 25: Presents and dinner at home, dessert at Auntie Kathy & Uncle Mike's house.
December 26: Rest!
So whichever holiday YOU celebrate,
from John, Lori-Ann, Margaret, Nicole & Bridget
