The Annual Post Christmas Newsletter for the 2017 Year!

I was reading the 2016 Christmas newsletter from last year and many of the same scenarios are going on this year. Except the grandkids and great grandkid are all a year older. The only thing that has changed with the kids is that Tammy our oldest daughter is holding down a couple of jobs plus is booster club president and still being mom of the year. Nechia and Dan still with the same jobs but contemplating a major change by moving to Willows (maybe??). Justin is still not done with building a tiny house, but is close. Heather and Steve are still doing fine. Carlyn left Tahoe to move back down to San Ramon. Has a boyfriend (Hunter) and seems to be happy. Zack is out of the Army and going to school. His sister Meahgan still raising Deegan and working. She was able to come over to Hawaii in the spring to visit the Palis. Their mom, Shellie gets up to Tahoe to snowboard every once in a while. Reed and Cole doing well as usual. Reed still doing the three sports in his junior year. Cole the youngest of the grandkids is going to be 13 this year. The highlight of the year has to be the family reunion we had at Disney World. Everyone but Dan and Steve were able to make it along with our nephew Javan and his girlfriend Malory. It was a great trip and lots of fun. Click here for lots of photos Pat and Ali are still on the same schedule. Ali works while we're in Tahoe at the Deerfield Lodge and Pat still doing the skiing/surfing thing in Tahoe and Hawaii. Pat attempted to do the John Muir Trail but had to bail on the 8th day due to a snow storm. Plans on finishing it next year.

They had a big reunion at Las Positas College and it was great to reunite with everyone. Pat coached players who now have grandchildren. Click here for photos --> Ultimate Pat's brother Mickey is still in So Cal and doing well. His son Javan resides in Colorado and owns his own business (Fix"n"cell). His sister Annie still serving her country and has a younger child now along with Sage her oldest daugter. Ali's side of the family are all doing well. She visits with her sisters (Denise, Dallas, and Jennifer) every once in a while in Modesto. Pat actually hooked up with Dallas and her husband Garrad to watch the solar eclipse in Idaho this summer. On the same trip, Pat continued on to Montana to visit his cousin Dan and his family. The Palis continue to migrate back and forth from Tahoe to Hawaii. We hope 2018 will be a great year for everyone. You're always welcome to visit the Palis in Tahoe or in Hawaii and you can always catch up on what's happening with Pat and Ali and their friends and families by going to "thepalis.com".

LOTS OF LOVE FROM THE PALI CLAN
