Home for the Holidays

We made our whirlwind tour back to the East coast for the holidays this year. Thankfully we made it back in time for the Franz Christmas party which we haven't been to since we got married! It was great to see everyone (and meet Shelleys boyfriend Chad!) -Myra says: `Aren't they so darn cute together`?!

There are a bunch of great pictures from the family Christmas party

We were also able to have a 'Hat Party' for Mary the same day! It was fun to see all the great hat's everyone found for her - she said it felt great to get that wig off for a little while!! :-) Here's all the ladies wearing hats - to see a picture of John, Johnny and Joe, click HERE...

Christmas day in Syracuse was a blast and I have to admit we were pretty spoiled again this year thanks to Dad & Mom Franz. We shared dinner with Lin, Bill, Shelley, Chad and Grandma and then took the ATVs for a spin...Myra and Shelley are maniacs! Joe had a blast tooling around on the ATVs with Dad the whole time we were there, blazing new trails, and getting muddy. Although it was brief it was good to have breakfast with Dave/Jen and Rob/Nicole, of course we were the only childless ones there!

We headed down to PA after Christmas for a few days to see everyone and got spoiled again. Christmas dinner #2 didn't help the waistline any either. We were there for the Longs Christmas party which we haven't been to in years either.
It was great to see all Joes high school buddies too.
There haven't been that many of us together in a long time!
Thanks to Jody and Matt for providing the feast!

We got bumped on the way back and left on New Years Day (a day later than planned) so we spent New Years Eve playing games and keeping Dad and Mom up till midnight! Even better...they flew us back First Class since we gave up our seats! Wish we could afford that all the time!

Myra and Joe

It was great having you at our house for the traditional family Christmas!

And what a great idea Myra had having a "Hat Party" for her mom! All chemo people need a hat party!

Love, Aunt Lin
