Out with a Bang!

Look what we found in the family room! Anna was having a "baby class" -- so cute! We have to teach her some more girl power!

Happy Birthday Nicholas!

It was Nicholas' birthday and it was also our "Sisters (my mom's) Christmas Party". This was the only pic - all those over 40! What a gang!

Merry Christmas to all!

Gramma, Pas, Uncle Billy, and Uncle Nick slept over to be there for Christmas morning fun! Who would have thought that pipe cleaners would be so exciting? Then Grandpa Nardi, and the Lach's and Wagner's came for a lovely breakfast brunch. It was Aunt Genni and Uncle Bob's turn to come in jammies. Note Carla's jumper that Mike dressed her in (from when I was little :) it says Colleen). Then we went to Geneva for another fabulous celebration with cousins, Grandma J, Uncle Bob, Zia, Zio, AnnMarie, and Uncle Frank and Aunt JoAnn! No pics?!? :(:( What a day!!!

Cookies for Santa

We made sure Santa and his reindeer wouldn't go hungry with plenty of cookies and carrots, ...and in the yard, "reindeer food" with specific instructions to go RIGHT to bed after sprinkling! Very cute idea :) Highly recommended. Thank you Erin. Anna was so worried that she would take too long getting all the way to her bed from outside, and we had to convince her that if she went straight to bed that would be good enough. So cute.

Christmas Show and Tea with Aubrey

We had a great day celebrating the holidays with the Highland Heights Christmas Party (no pics) and our first visit to Chagrin Valley Little Theatre for a Christmas tea and very kid-friendly Christmas show. They got to participate throughout and then meet everybody on stage afterward. Thanks Deanna for thinking of us!

Swim practice!

After a nice bath, the girls both had a great time helping Daddy put the Christmas tree together, and then help Mommy with the ornaments. Fun to have Christmas decorations up early!

Nela Park Tree Lighting

No pics of the beautiful lights, but it was a great party! The girls had a ball with David and Erica dancing around and even studying the GE inventions on display!

Rainforest with Maddie and Ben

Carla and Ben are getting so big! They had fun bonding today. Maddie and Anna were also so very darling talking with this little monkey through the window -- I recorded a great video...thought I did...but when I hit stop, I actually hit record, bummer, but at least there is that blurry photo, right?!
