Happy New Year

Ugh...winter break is over. I think I feel as bad as the kids do about going back to school and work today. We had a great Christmas vacation! There was still dance and hockey but just the right amount to keep the kids occupied and moving. They were very busy with friends and parties and sleepovers too. I loved sleeping in every day and not having to wake up at 6:15 to see the kiddies off to school...and no work. It was so nice!! It's my favorite week of the year for sure. I loved sitting in my living room looking at all my Christmas lights and decorations and snoozing on the couch with my new iPad mini!! 

Gianna had an early NYE party on the 30th with her dance friends...


Danny, Gianna and I had a great NYE across the street with Patty, Franny, Bridget and her boyfriend Nolan. We had a delicious meal and played a bunch of fun games until midnight. It was very relaxing with lots of laughs!!





Nicholas spent NYE with some friends playing knee hockey, eating lots of junk food and had a sleepover. And Julia was invited down the Cape to her friend's beach house for the weekend. I was really happy everyone had something fun to do! 

Videos from Julia's NYE weekend...

Here's to a very happy, healthy and safe 2017!!!

Christmas Day

Saw these next to the fire place on Christmas Eve...



Santa came...



My morning tea next to a picture of Gianna's first Christmas...I really miss them that little...


What a great day we had. The kids loved all their gifts...


Gianna had this reaction to almost every single gift she opened...so cute...


She asked to donate money in her name to an endangered animal website and in return they send you a stuffed animal of the endangered animal you picked and an adoption certificate. Gianna has a strong love for animals and I'm very proud of her for wanting to do this...










Julia got an iPad and was so surprised!!


She's a happy girl...





I have an obsession with owls and Julia has an obsession with pineapples...


Gianna got her first phone...she was super excited as you can see...









Yes, they were totally spoiled as usual...but it's my favorite time of the year to do that for them.

Relaxing with their new electronics...


My family came over and we had delicious food and played some really fun games. Seems like everyone got this game for Christmas this year...


It is absolutely hysterical!! I highly recommend it. There are two different versions..."Watch ya mouth" (that's the one we got) or "Speak Out"...


It was a wonderful and really fun Christmas!!

Christmas Eve

Today we spent the day with my family at my sister's house...



They made us a delicious brunch! Restaurant worthy for sure...


Me and my babies...


and all five of us...



Just the funniest ever...


Gianna adores her new Nike hat...


We came home and went to church. I just love Christmas Mass. Then the kids made and decorated their traditional sugar cookies...


and opened presents from each other...mostly candy as usual...but Julia made Gianna slime this year...yes slime...and she LOVED it!!



They made their reindeer food...love that Nicholas still helps. Now we're getting ready to pile on the couch to watch the Polar Express!!

Merry Christmas Eve!
