Fitzgerald Family Christmas 2009
We gathered together today for the annual Fitzgerald Christmas celebration and it was the first holiday we had all four Fitzgerald children and seven of the eight grandchildren.
We also got to tell Mom and Dad about their surprise Christmas gift... the fact that we gathered all eight grandchildren (and one great-grandson) together on Black Friday and had their picture taken.
Mom has actually mentioned this to us in the last few visits and it's been hard to keep our secret (and if they suspected they didn't let us know it). This photo has been in the works for several months as the oldest grandson, Jason, lives in New Jersey. He made a special trip here so he could make our family picture (and Christmas surprise) complete and I'm excited to see the finished product.
We also had individual shots of Savannah and Julius taken (as well as pictures of the other sets of grandchildren) and I can't wait to see those as well.
Will post as soon as I can.
In the meantime, here are some pictures from our gathering today. We had a wonderful time visiting (and eating great food as well).
