The 2011 Burgon Christmas Party!

Shauna and her brothers Kent and Paul and sisters Vicki, Jackie, Lonnie and Shelly organized the party at the recreation hall at the LDS chapel across the street from where they all grew up after relocating to Orem, Utah from Midvale, Utah! Their father Marv Burgon helped start Orem State Bank, and their mother Margaret was on the board of directors of what is now Utah Valley University. Shauna and her two brothers and four sisters have over 35 children, and all of the cousins now have big families of their own, so the gathering was crowded and noisy. Some of the great grandchildren of Marv and Margaret are starting families. Remembering names is a big challenge! Families are forever; but memories require family group sheets and carefully completed genealogical records. During the Burgon Christmas party, the family opened a ten-year old time capsule put together in 2001.
Some of the grandchildren danced to a Wii!

Christmas Eve in Highland, 2011

Shauna made pajamas for all of the grandchildren (again!) this year.
Lisa and Gina brought us to tears with their Christmas medley of songs, accompanied by guitarist James Valentine, pianists Chris Clark and Christopher Valentine. Several of the grandchildren played Christmas carols, too. Very noisy. Very enthusiastic!
