Cheater Blogging

okay, i admit it. i'm really far behind on blogging. i'll blame it on getting ready to head to DE for Christmas with toby out of town for 3 days the week before, 9 days gone and no desire to blog while with our family. there you go.

however, i was able to get caught up on some of my "scrapbooking" pictures while in the car on the ride home yesterday (thank you 13.5 hour trip!!). so, i'm cheating. this is what you get. hopefully, it will help ease the transition back to when i have internet at the house (a storm while we were gone blew our cable box and!)


*if you click on the pictures, you can see them bigger*

you got our Christmas card, right? well, this is a repeat of that...

and we tried to fit in all the fun holiday activities in the week leading up to our trip. gingerbread house decorating and cookie baking/decorating. so fun!


our neighborhood is so festive and fun!

and both the kids had their Christmas programs the week before we left. i don't have a video of Gianna's to post yet, but you can see Roman's below.

Gianna has been practicing a lot for her Christmas program on Monday. She has all the hand motions down and I think it's going to be a great show. If she doesn't get stage fright, that is! Cross your fingers!

Seeing Santa

It's a good thing I don't have high expectations for a great picture with Santa, huh?

She's just not down with being in close proximity with ole Kris Kringle.

Maybe next year...

And this guy...he saw this on the way to see santa and decided to ask for one....WHAT???

She was much happier after we walked away from santa and she got her ear "muffins"!
