Happy New Year!

Fun with the Hill and Ward families! We missed the Pilumeli's who are off in Italy!

Anna conked out on the couch before 6pm!, so she missed a cute Wiggles dance party -- so cute!

Including my cousin Kayla there were 13 of us sleeping under one roof tonight!

Christmas Eve

Giuseppe (Joseph) and Violetta (an angel) were in the Christmas pageant and Anna was a zombie in mass, until she and Dionisio buddied up. We gave Anna and Carla each a present this afternoon and Carla was the main character of hers! Anna was excited to prepare snacks for Santa and his reindeer. Thanks Gramma for the cute plate and mug :)

Oh, Christmas time :)

We went to see the life-sized Candyland at Halle Farm and then came home and made a candy masterpiece ourselves - just look at the focus and concentration! And it sure looks like Carla is going to enjoy all the upcoming unwrapping! She actually did really well getting this gift open! So cute :)

Fairy Dust and Scissors

Anna found some Styrofoam and was making and sprinkling "fairy dust" all over the living room! Also, she learned a new skill of cutting with scissors today! ...Don't worry she was with me for that!

Wow! New record for time between posting!

Back to El Rodeo, yum!, and this time there was a clown! Bo Bo made Anna a cool Nemo out of balloons with sea surroundings and all! Somehow there were no pics of the creation. Aren't Carla and Daddy looking even more alike these days?! Oops! Carla entertained us all by grabbing Daddy's food and spilling it all over him! So interested in food these days...pretty soon Carla!

We love you Candace!

We'll miss you so much! Thanks for all the great memories! And your wonderful help!

For the one of just Anna (and GLifford, as she calls him), she asked me to take a pic of them! This isn't something she usually does ... usually I'm just taking them constantly ...

Then, here are some book club ladies braving the wintry ice storm!

Spontaneous Photo Shoot!

We were having fun with "our whole family" as Anna says, playing around in her room. Then I thought since Carla was still all dolled up for a birthday party (Happy Birthday Alana!), I could take some pictures of her. They turned out darling!

Candace's Second-to-Last Day and GE Lighting Ceremony

Buddies :)

Fun was had by all!

Here is a sneak peak at what had to be cropped out for our Christmas card - Anna's memorable flashing of tights, and no shoes (Dora tennies were worn for the rest of the party b/c of some dress shoe confusion)!

Thank you Uncle Steve!

These cute kitties are Pounce and Snip!
(Anna sometimes calls them Bounce and Snap)

The Girls!
