    If I want to address a christmas card to the Smith household I can say:

    "The Smiths"

    but what if I want to send one to the Eads household? Do I say:

    "The Eads'?"

    "The Eads?"

    "The Eadses?"

    Luke.

    Maybe that one was too easy, what about my last name: "Taratus."

    "The Taratus" sounds not right. Not even a little.

    Ok, then you can just write: "The Taratus Family" on the card...
