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!

Back - Kyle Korzenowski, Mike Knott, Richard Sundblad, Mike (Karen's Date), Karen Korzenowski & Jim Hansen
Middle - Mike Olson, Jackie's date, Lori Wilson, Debbie Sundblad, Bernice, Judy Korzenowski & Chuck Hatfield
Front - Deb Edwards, Jackie Sypnieski, Jean Knott, Sandy Hatfield, Barb Korzenowski, Paula Hansen & Jon Olson

Deb Edwards with her lovely deviled egg plate. She made those pants out of some curtains she no longer used.

Mike Olson with his surprise!

Chuck getting ready to brave the cold.

Lori attempting to see if there actually was anything in the box.

Mike Knott with one of my favorite gifts - the white platform boots.
I actually think he liked them.

Jackie with her report cards from Holy Rosary School.

Jim with a clock that didn't work.

Jean with samples!

Deb with her breast pump.

Bernice with a beautiful candle.

Paula with her marble lamp. Wonder if she still has it hanging up!

Richard and Debbie reading the instructions for the breast pump.

Ted enjoying his present.

Barb being Barb and trying to figure what she got.

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.
