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.

Here's the 1998 portrait of the kids:

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.

Our Traditions

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
