Tooth #1

My Niece's Birthday

My little niece CELESTE turned 4 today. Here is a copy of her invitation I digitally scrapbooked. She had a birthday party at her house. The kids decorated their own mini pizza's and then decorated their own cookies with every possible topping imaginable. It wasn't nearly as messy as I thought it would be. The kids had a great time doing it. We then sang Happy Birthday, which Celeste did not like, I don't know if it was the sound of our singing or just how loud it was but she covered her ears and hid her head in her daddy's chest. She then opened presents and called it a day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CELESTE!!!


We went to the Children's Museum at the Gateway for our first time last week. The kids had a ball. If you haven't yet taken your youngins', you're in for a good time. I went with the boys and their cute girlfriends Ashley and Ellie. They had the most fun in the pretend theater. They have real costumes, real backdrops, and real stage curtains. They also have different lights you can spotlight them in. They have little scripts which you can read, and so as I read they acted out the stories. BRAVO guys!

Fastest Scooter in the West

In case you were wondering, Dominic is still not walking. However, he can scoot EXTREMELY fast! Especially when I need him to come with me or need to change his diaper I say his name, walk toward him and he instantly takes off in a sprint scoot! This is him scooting back and forth behind a poll as I'm trying to grab him. Don't ya love his last facial expression!?!

Oh no, It's 5-0

Dominic picking up a usual suspect!


Ok all, OLD NAVY is having a CRAZY sale. The best one to hit is the one at The Gateway. Last night after my purchases, and trying to load 5 stuffed bags onto my stroller so I could push it, I thought I'd add up how much my total would have been without the sale. I am pleased to inform you that I purchased $600 worth of clothes for $130. If you haven't already been, GO, get in on the savings. Happy Shopping!

Andrea's 32nd Birthday

My bestest friend in the whole world just celebrated her 32nd birthday. We went to the Porcupine Grill for dinner (yummy, yummy) and then were off to Hogs Wallow to top off the night! I thought I'd post a few pictures of our evening out. We had a fun time, some of them had a little too much fun. Happy Birthday Babe! Love ya!


I really can't believe that on January 2nd it's been 4 years since Rocco was born. It's amazing how fast time goes by. I have to keep reminding him that no matter how old he gets, he'll always be my baby...even when he's 40!

Rocco's Birthday Party

Rocco had his 4th birthday party at The Little Gym. If anyone is looking for a great place to have a party, this is the place. They do EVERYTHING! The kids had a fantastic time and Rocco couldn't have been happier. Really, who wants to watch and entertain 15 4yr. olds or have them running around their house?

Who Has The Greatest In-Laws?!?

I DO! For Christmas my in-laws gave Vinnie and I a trip to Cabo San Lucas, and to top it off they're going to watch the kids for us as well. How great are they!?! That's 5 whole days sitting on the beach or by the pool reading, soakin' up the sun, and sippin' Pina Coloda's. I can't wait. We leave February 7th, that is provided my passport gets here on time. Feel free to check out the resort at

Christmas Morning

First off, we hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas. Rocco was at a really fun age this year. We had a great holiday season with friends and family. A couple of Roccoisms from this Christmas: After Rocco had finished opening his gifts he says, "That Santa, he's a pretty good guy" and when Uncle Tony asked him if Santa came to his house he said, " Yep, I guess I wasn't naughty enough" as if it were some sort of challenge.
