Happy New Year!
(Yes, the headless antlers are wearing a bow. )
It's finally 2007! I haven't updated the blog in a little while because I've been all over the place visiting family and friends, and so now I'm going to make a few posts at once! First up, family Christmas antics. This year we traveled to Ohio to spend time with my father's side of the family. These are some of the many photos I took that evening:
Cousins Amanda and Joel preparing to be Santa's Helpers. Don't they look thrilled:
Uncle Drew and Aunt Roseanne. I don't know what the joke was, but thought it made a fun photo:
My cousin Tony, who has been taking some pretty cool photos of his own recently:
My grandmother and her kids. My dad is in the back:
These photos were all taken during Antognoli Christmas Bingo. Yes, you read correctly. My crazy family plays Bingo every Christmas eve. When I spend Christmas with Andy's family, I call on Christmas eve, and they sing the Bingo song so I can hear. Did I forget to mention, when someone wins, we sing the Bingo song and clap. And everyone is a winner at Bingo. And we sing every time. I have a big family. I had no hope of turning out normal.
Nonna reading off the Bingo numbers. You have to stay on your toes because she sometimes reads them in code or a mix of Italian and English. After a decade you start to figure out the code though, and Bingo is much easier to win.
Singing and clapping during Bingo. Everyone is a winner... I think this is toward the end when we sang the Bingo song 20 times already.
My Aunt Libby under the disco lights and with antlers:
Andy being attacked by my cousin Jordan:
And finally, Andy nabbed this photo of me in between my taking photos. Note my striped tights. I loooove striped tights.
I hope everyone had a happy holiday, and look forward to starting off 2007 with a bang!
