Oliver visits the Chickens.......

Oliver loves to get his hair cut, because that's the day he can visit Peyton's chickens. He likes this black and white guy, because he makes the most noise, and he's a different color from the rest of the group.Now, Oliver isn't into getting his picture taken these days, so he's just looking straight on at the little guy....waiting patiently for the next noise to make it out of his mouth.Chickens are pretty cute...don't you think?

Christmas Eve~

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas from our home to yours...
We are so excited around here for Christmas, to celebrate the birth of Jesus and give gifts to our loved ones.  Each year since my boys were born we started the tradition to go to my parents house( Nana and grampi-papa.)  We start our celebration with my Auntie Jan and her beautiful family coming over for my mom's Italian family Christmas Eve dinner of Spaghetti and Tallia....

Then the gift exchange which this year with eight grand kids and cousins may become a little crazy...
(pictures to come)
The grand kids get their first of many presents from Nana and grampi-papa~
Christmas pj's... 
Then its off to get Santa his milk and cookies in order and of course the Reindeer their carrots!

Morning cant come soon enough...With sounds of reindeer on the roof and Santa's bells ringing in the sky we wake to the most magical Christmas morning I could ever imagine...

Cookie anyone??

Oliver and I made cookies the other day at Nana's house.... 
We had so much fun making treats for Dylan and Charlie's teachers.  A couple years ago I decided to start making the teacher's their gifts. As all of you know, something handmade is sooo much better then something store bought! 

Reindeer Food for Dylan's class party (in each bag Rudolph red nose shined bright ), Glass jars of Meringues for each teacher, and Mocha Drops for Grampi and Uncle Michael.

Christmas is coming....

I am so sorry ,  we have been gone for so long..  As Christmas day approaches I find myself having no time to sit down....

Let me take a few minutes and tell you a little bit of what fun we have been having during this holiday season.  My Nana suprised us by taking us to the Disney on Ice ...
This year was Toy Story and I loved it~

As Im writing this blog Oliver is taking another look at our pictures from our night and he sees Jesse, and says in his cute little voice ,"My see Jesse mom, I love Jesse mom!"


~Madison and our cousin Alyiah~

Last week the big kids had their Christmas concerts at school ...
Charlie and Madison were first!

Madison had her first speaking part this year and did great...


Next Dylan and Marshall's class ..


And as for me I've just been trying to be a good boy, just waiting for Santa to come!
