So, from my childhood....

My favorite memory would have to be the large family meals. I distinctly remember a Christmas when I must have been about 15. My sister had 2 kids by then, my nephew, Tony (Macaroni) and my niece, Brianna. Bri was just a little one then. My sister had the kids all dolled up & she and her husband were also dressed up. I can't remember if Mom and Dad made Mandy, Frank, and I dress up or not. We all ate dinner together and then shared 1 gift. It was Christmas Eve. All of us kids (Me, Amanda, Frank, Tony, and Brianna) got pajamas from my Aunt Nunny. She ALWAYS gets her nieces and nephews (even the greats and the in-laws!) pajamas for Christmas. We also gave Tony and Bri their gifts from our family. We ate our traditional, mini weenies, Italian sausage, stuffed artichokes, and other small finger foods. I have a picture that we took that was one of the first family pictures of my sister and her husband with both of their kids.

I've always thought it would be really fun to get all dressed up one year for a very formal dinner.
