Hello Strangers!

It has indeed been a very long time since I last sat in front of this screen and shared what has been going on in our little world. As I look back, it has been since before Christmas, last year!!! It has been crazy busy around here.

Well, here are a few highlights to catch you up!

We finally got to meet our sweet, little niece Sophia. We had been waiting so long to meet this face, little did she know that her cousin Amara was going to transform her into a butterfly fairy princess!

Remember those Olivia pants I made a few posts back, well I think they were a huge hit!

We had a great time spending Christmas and New Years at Grandma and Papa's place in Arizona, and really loved that M & M and Sophia made the long trek all the way from Jersey! Grandma and Papa definitely spoiled all of us with love, gifts, and fantastic trip to San Diego. All nine of us, six adults, three children in carseats, and 3 dogs all piled into a passenger van and headed west so we could experience the incredible San Diego Zoo and Sea World. We all had such a great time, we can't wait for us all to be together so we can do it all over again!

 I think everyone can relate to this photo. It sure is a hard knock life for these guys! Vacationing is tuff stuff.

With the new year, we have been making time to Tebow (lol),

we have been enjoying singing songs and playing guitar in our family jam sessions,

and the littlest one has been working hard, practicing her steps.

Here I go...
I think I can, I think I can...
I know I can, I know can...
Yay!!! Success!

It is so awesome watching little Ani get around all in her last week of being 10 months! She really loves her new wheels and hasn't stopped yet.

As if we are not busy enough, we have a new member to the family.
meet Kira. We rescued this scared, mal-nourished, flea and tick infested little girl, got her all cleaned up, gave her some serious love and affection. It's a unanimous decision, she is here to stay!

Until next time..
...enjoy your weekend!
