Photos of the Cilwa/Manion's 2003 Christmas Dinner.

2003's Christmas Dinner was a relatively small affair. For those of you who missed it, here's what we all looked like.

Zachary was still jazzed over all the presents, and the fact that it wasn't over yet—the guests were bringing more.

In fact, he couldn't wait to open them and bugged us until we agreed it was "time".

Which is not to say there weren't a few presents left over for the rest of us!

Michael and Paul

Then came time for the meal. Michael served up plate after plate, and diners served themselves. The menu: Roast Turkey, and Roast Beef, and Roast Ham! Plus stuffing, cheesy-garlic mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, asparagus, creamed onions…and that doesn't even get to desert: Apple and pumpkin pies, pumpkin mousse, ice cream, and several plates of homemade Christmas cookies!

Mary and Karen

Granted, actually eating all that food had its challenges…!

From left to right: Sandy (our friend), Mary, Karen, Michael, Zachary, Paul, Surya, Peter, Kathleen, Jock, and Kelly. Missing: Peter's wife Barbara, who had to fly to the East Coast; Jock's wife Diane, and Zachary's mother, Jennifer, both of whom were down with the flu.
