1986 Christmas Party!

When we lived in Minneapolis, Judy and I would have an annual Christmas Party the Friday before Christmas and invite all the relatives over and exchange "fun" gifts. It literally was a time to unload all the crap you had around the house unto someone else. 1986 was the last time we held the event - as we moved to Boston the following year. Sure do miss them!

And the best present that year was received by Paula - an old artificial tree missing a few branches! We found it up in our front yard the following morning.

Parker gets his face painted!

Parker recently was at a Bar Mitzvah Party and they had a face painter there named "Peanutbutter" who painted the faces of the kids. Too bad Halloween was weeks ago.

Check out the video of "Peanutbutter" with Martha Stewart.
