christmas and cousins.

my family, childrenMaria AngerilliComment

nola and sam are very lucky for many reasons, with one being that they are blessed with having so many cousins...it makes for wonderful family celebrations.  our christmas started on christmas eve with the rebodos clan, followed by a quiet christmas morning with just the 4 of us, and then ending with a lively celebration with the angerilli/davis cousins.  each celebration had its own special traditions that i hope both nola and sam will look forward to over the coming years.

my christmas eve meal....beef wellington - i was sweating a cold sweat hoping that this would turn out, otherwise, i would have received quite the earful from the cooks in the room (not naming any names)

christmas isn't christmas at the angerilli/davis household without the christmas carol sing-a-long...
