christmas 2013…..

2 Jan

santamatteo’s first christmas was a success!

even though he has no idea who santa is

and will never remember meeting him in this photo,

the season just wouldn’t be the same without

the jolly old man!

presents

these days we just buy gifts for the little ones

 and even though i know the kids don’t even notice the wrapping,

it’s still my favorite part. i love making all the packages pretty!

loves

the holidays felt different this year,

naturally all of our attention was focused on baby matteo

and celebrating our first christmas as a family.

i couldn’t help but to get excited thinking of

how we’ll spend our holidays from here on out,

making new traditions and

really feeling the magic that littles bring.

growing

matteo makes 5!

the family is growing fast and

my parents live for the grandkids.

i love seeing all the cousins together!

together

visiting friends is always fun too!

we’ve already have these two’s first date planned!

can’t wait for these two to play together.

********

i just love the holidays

and they always seem to just fly by so quickly.

next year will only get better though.

matteo will be one year old and

one year closer to understanding

all the joy the holidays bring.

********

we hope your holidays were as lovely as ours!

let the countdown begin…..

1 Dec

so december is here, and quickly i might add.

i hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving with their families and friends.

i know i sure did!

i don’t know about you guys, but my house is already fully decorated for christmas!!! 

hooray!!!!!

i love when the house smells like pine cones and winter berry candles.

i think the only thing that would make it feel a little more like the holidays would be some cooler weather.

but i don’t think i can complain too much, 70 degrees in december….. whaaaaat???

we took some family pictures this past weekend for our x-mas cards, and since we like to pretend that we are photographers (we are nowhere near pros, haha!) we took the photos our selves. kinda difficult when you have to keep running back and forth to set the timer. anyways, here’s a couple shots from the shoot.

you’ll have to wait to see which one made the cut for the card!

let the count down to x-mas begin………. 25 days

happy december everyone!!!!
