Well, the last month has flown by like a whirlwind! I enjoyed every minute of the holiday season...even some of the minor mishaps, like missing Mass on Christmas Eve at 2 different churches because there was no more parking left, or having to take down our beautiful REAL Christmas tree on December 23rd because it has shedding about 2 inches of needles daily! It really was quite funny - considering my initial post about our Christmas tree included thoughts of it becoming a Charlie Brown Christmas tree! Good thing we set up our fake one in the basement! What would baby's first Christmas be like with no tree?
|Ridiculous! Remember how beautiful this tree was the day after Thanksgiving?|
|Just a few needles that dropped off once they brought it outside! |
Who knew a Christmas Tree could last just 4 weeks! Yes, we watered it daily!
We spent the holidays in our normal tradition of Christmas Eve at the Castelli's, and Christmas day at the Adragna's. Roman, of course, was so good both days and got lots of fun toys! He just has such a peaceful little demeanor! And then New Year's Eve we decided to keep it low-key and have our families over! We ordered pizza, and everyone brought a dish, and we played games, watched Tony and Matt run (literally) into each other each holding an exercise ball - fun visual huh, had push-up contests, drank champagne at midnight, and then stayed up talking in the kitchen until 2am - a successful night if I do say so myself!
