Zambenini Family Reunion---Christmas 2001

Jim and Sheila Hosted Our Family Get-to-gether in Santa Rosa California

Bob, Jim and Sheila, John Robert, Joyce, Audrey, Pam and John. Our first get-to-gether in some time. Jim and Sheila hosted us in their recently remodeled home. John and family flew out from Dayton OH and spent a couple of days in San Francisco before joining us.

John got the DVD/VCR and at right, just like old times, identical packages for the boys.

Sarah carefully checks over her package before opening.

Joyce has another puzzle to work down the road if Bob drives carefully and a prized family photo.

Sheila and Audrey had carefully planned, and kept Jim's gift of a laser mitre saw camoflouged as a gift to Audrey, so it would be a big surprise to Jim.

Sheila did a fantastic job with all our meals and hosting us. At right, Sheila takes a well deserved break after Christmas dinner!!
