Let me Introduce you to my family!

This is not one of my shorter videos. I wanted to do something different this time and introduce 
every person who attend our annual family Christmas Eve party. So that took lots of minutes.

If you have lived in our area for any length of time you most likely will know some of these people.

And as a side note, I don't want to confuse anyone by the first song you'll hear.
It just happened to be on our car radio at the time.

Okay, keep an open mind. I made lots of mistakes....
and how did I forget Ty Kennington and Wendy!!
So thankful to be part of a large extended family who are not easily offended.

And the award for "Outstanding Family Christmas Video of the Year" goes to.....(drum roll, cymbal crash) JILL SHELLEY!!!!!

I have so much to comment yet the words just keep coming to my mind all jumbled at once. I enjoyed this video immensely and acknowledge all the work gone into creating it. Thank you for this wonderful gift.

I just love your family. Plain and simple.

I took notes, some of which are: ALEX~~ I'd love to see you in The Secret Garden. One of my favorite books. NICOLE/NATE~~ precious baby; CARLY~~ all those beautiful children and I love their names; JAKE/KATIE~~ I like how you answered where you live with your zipcode 93619, I will be sure to look it up; LINDSAY/GARTH~~ Twin Oaks, to be exact, not LA!; NICK/JULIA~~ Columbus Ohio? We live about 4 hours from you and travel near Columbus a few times a year and have family in Westerville. Would like to stop by sometime. LOGAN/AMY~~ great to see you again!!
To all Jill's brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, Dad and Susan .... it's an honor to know you.

Many blessings,

Pam in Michigan

I got cut off 3 minutes into the video, but it looks fun. I will try later today.

Grandma Honey said...

YES Pam IS a wonderful person....more on her later.

GrandmaPeg.....I don't know why that happened or what to do about it, but thanks for trying.

I figured out how to get it so it wouldn't bump me so I was able to watch the whole thing. How wonderful that you did this. Your family is so lucky to have you document things like this. I loved meeting the family, and was especially happy to see the very short "cameos" of you and Dennis, which usually never happens on your videos :-)) Great job!

Thank you for posting this! I am so happy to be uber pregnant but sad that it meant we had to miss this. I loved seeing everyone!

I enjoyed every second of it, from the drive up to the house (I love that drive) to Rivka's beautiful piano solo (I love that piano!). And the shot of the island covered in food was a familiar and welcome sight. But what I loved most was seeing all the people! Thanks for doing this!
