Year In Review

There is one word that sums up this year for me and Tony, and that word is BLESSED. I was blessed beyond measure with an uneventful and perfectly healthy pregnancy. We both were blessed with beautiful, healthy, strong daughters that have given us a new reason to be better human beings. We were blessed with challenges that taught us many lessons and made us stronger. We were blessed with loving family and friends who gave us unconditional support. We are filled with gratitude and thank God daily for these blessings.
I am a much different person now than I was just a year ago. I have learned things about myself I never knew. I never knew how much love my heart could hold until February 17th; I never knew how strong I could really be until February 17th; I never knew that I could fall deeper in love with my husband for giving me these two beautiful girls; I never knew that a five minute shower would feel like heaven; I never knew that a trip to the grocery store by myself would be a luxury; I never knew how much I would come to hate washing bottles; I simply never knew how much I would love to stay in on a Friday and Saturday night and just relax with my family; and I never knew how much I would change and how much I would love the change.
Tony and I wish that 2010 will be a year full of hope and blessing for you and your family!

Looking for to another year of fun memories!

Christmas Eve 2009 in The City!

We have been going to San Francisco on Christmas eve ever since I can remember. My dad would take my three brothers and me to the City on Christmas eve day, so my mom could get ready for Christmas eve dinner and to host Christmas day. Even though we are all grown up now and have our own children we still go to San Fransisco, we simply cannot give up the tradition. The city is so beautiful during Christmas season.
We took the BART train over there and the girls did great.
Our first stop was in the Hyatt Regency Hotel to see the huge Christmas Tree and their famous Christmas village. From there we walked the streets and shopped through the Embarcadero center.
Aiden loves his uncle Tony!
and Ellie absolutely loved riding on Daddy's back!

Lola got the royal treatment form her Uncles. Mark carried her all over the city, Matt made her laugh and below, Shaun fed her her bottle!

First Plane Ride!

Off to grandmother's house we go... I was very anxious to take two 10 month old babies on a plane ride by myself, but our girls did great! Model Babies! All cute and ready to go!
Ellie all ready too!
Emma was a huge help in the airport, our flight was delayed an hour, the girls needed a lot of attention and it would have been almost impossible to do it on my own. Thanks Emma!

Just about to board and Ellie is so excited but Lola had fallen a sleep already, Ellie will have to fill Lola in on the pre-flight action.

Below is what my girls did for most of the flight, when they did wake up they were satisfied with Cheerios and didn't cry at all! What troopers!

We made it, safe and sound! Grandma Mar was there to greet us!

Christmas at Home

Before we headed up North to my parents house Tony and I gave the girls their first Christmas at our house! They opened their stocking first, Lola loved the bubbles and Ellie loved her socks.

The girls first Christmas presents from mommy and daddy, little teddy bears that say Babies first Christmas with their initials engraved in the ribbon.
After aftermath!

Christmas at Emma's

Yesterday we had Christmas at the Mezzadri's, Tony, the girls, and I are going to my parents house on Christmas day so Santa came a bit early to Emma's house. It was so much fun!
Sara, Uncle Drew, Tony, Lola, Emma, Stacie and Ellie

Too funny not to post... the girl's were freaking out!
The girls got fancy stockings at Emma's this year, lucky them!

Lola smiling with Uncle Drew
Ellie Belle
Not so happy Lola

Lola is much happier during dinner time!

and both the girls are much happier during Santa time. We were taken back by how much fun the girls were to watch as we opened presents. They loved all the excitement, the paper, and the of course the presents.

Lola loves her new tea set!

Ellie loved her new life sized dog

Daddy loved his gifts too!

The girls got so many great thing not pictured. Uncle Drew and Auntie Sara spoiled them with the cutest cloths from Gymboree and of course they had to have tickle Me Elmo. I think Ellie liked the box a bit more, but soon enough.
Thanks Emma for a great first Christmas!
