Happy Pizza-Hut New Year!

A vice president at Pizza Hut was inspired by the “Kids by the Dozen” TV shows, so he threw our names into a media campaign for their PANormous Pan Pizzas. Pizza Hut ordered 25 PANormous pizzas, 6 pasta dishes, and 25 2-liters of soda, delivered by the two fine Pizza Hut delivery people pictured here. We sent an email inviting our friends from town here, and few people turned down free pizza. We had about 100 people over for New Year’s Eve!

Only three families stuck around till midnight, where we lit sparklers and yelled Happy New Year off the back deck. We still have our handful who fall asleep before midnight, but the kids are getting older and so are their friends. Games were played well into the night while we parents sat around in the living room and enjoyed semi-peaceful conversations. Wendy and I didn’t lay our heads down till 1:30 a.m. What a party!

Part of the deal we had with Pizza Hut was to take some pictures of the family. The game leader of our AWANA program, Ken Mallott, is a professional photographer (see his web site here…fantastic photos!). He and his wife came over…and he brought his camera. His camera is worth more than all my vehicles put together! He snapped a ton of pictures of partiers chomping down on PANormous Pizza Hut Pizza. Pizza Hut plans on using these photos for ad campaigns in the future. So, if you see a Jeub kid on a billboard somewhere, you know where the picture originated!
