Merry Chrstmas

Merry Christmas! From my family to yours........

The Franklin concert. Matteo made it half way through.He had a missed his nap,so I new that we were headed for disaster...

Frankie didnt want to go.Sometimes the age gap is alittle difficult.Then we stayed in a hotel,that I have tried twice and I have decided i won't be staying there again.But of course since Matteo fell asleep at Franklin. He was all about partying at the hotel and didnt go to sleep until 1am.Yikes!!

Have a safe and Happy Christmas!

Sometimes I cant believe my first baby is almost 12!!

Here she is around 4 years old.

Teach what we Preach

Today Matteo told his sister "put me down freak". And also said a swear to his dad. Needless to say I am less than happy about it and had to put his daddy in a timeout! {Ok,I must admit the freak thing took me by so much surprise,I laughed and hard}.But the swearing not so funny.

A big problem I have found in this house that daddy works away for two weeks at a time and it is getting really hard for him to remember we are not "the guys".He has never been an overly sensitive man,ok not sensitive at all. I make up for the both of us I think. But Matteo is so much more impressionable than Frankie. When she was four and got tricked into saying crap,she almost had a breakdown. Not my little man,it cracks him up and he listens intently for any type of bad word for correcting.I feel like this is an uphill battle that daddy doesn't think is such a big deal.

Matteo is such a handfull{like watching 3 kids},I do note need to add swearing to the mix!But on that not he can be so peaceful....

Date and glasses

This is me in my new glasses.
I have to tell you,they have caused quite a stir on facebook. My family and friends have been praising the look.But they said if they didnt know it was my page they wouldnt know it was me. I dont think I look that different.I think it is my hair also.
Oh well I have to wear them though,because my left eye has gotten dramatically worse and I just had my old pair for show. I never wore them.
Matteo and I had a great time at Thomas and he got a ton of loot,the guy next to us commented on all his stuff."Boy,you got everything" he said to Matteo.Well he did get alot but I would never say anything that rudely to someone.Because you know what there was a time when I wouldnt have been able to afford any of it,let alone a ticket. So,if I want to do something special for my kids I will. And yes I will admit they have been alittle spoiled lately,but so what.

We topped it all off by a visit to Chukie Cheese the next day on the way home.After a nice sleep in a big hotel bed.Just me and my little guy,it was great.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween,

Woody and the pirate will get ready soon. And Woody actually gets it this year,so he is really excited. It is kinda crazy to have one that wants to go out in a group and one that needs his mama!Be safe out there

Big Date

Me and my best boy are going on a date. No not Joe,my little man. We are heading to Regina for an overnight stay. A hotel with an Aligator(elevator). Dinner and then Thomas The Train live. So exciting. Then some lunch and a little playing at Chuckie Cheese tomorrow.

Should be fun, Frankie and I will go on a Regina date next month to see Twilight the movie.I am actually looking forward to some toddler time and some alone time when he sleeps.

Almost nine months later and Matteo can't stop talking about "Disneyland in California". Money well spent I think.
He even talks about it in his sleep.
I guess Frankie has decided "if you can't beat em,join em".

Matteo and his Tee Tee

Matteo sure loves his Tee Tee{grandpa}.They are best buds. I really think he is my dads bestfriend.We have no idea why he calls him Tee Tee.And when he catches himself saying grandpa,which he is more than capable of,he always corrects himself.

He is alittle lost right now without his buddy,Tee Tee. The six week take care of your heart break is over and now the boys cant play as much.

It is too early for this

It is way to early for this,couldnt we at least make it till Halloween!

And it is actually sticking. Everytime I look at weather network they push the snow onto the next day.We were expecting Saskpower to start digging this week,Maybe not now. It does look pretty though,but thats not the point.It is such a hassle.

Why did I move to Saskatchewan again?
Oh ya it is because I love this,

So,I guess we will stay inside and eat our Thanksgiving ham.And be thankful for all we have and the warm roof over our heads.... And maybe we will do "Loga" instead.

Happy Thanksgiving!

3 bugs in a rug

I dont know how they can sleep like this.... But they did all night. I was blessed with 2 kids who can sleep through anything.It is just the geting them to sleep thing.....

This bed has been called the "little Bed" at my Nonna's house for at least 32 years that I have been alive.{I am sure with a mattress change in there somewhere}.But the funny thing is I remember doing the same thing with my own cousins and know its our children.......

My Orange belted girl and her biggest fan

Frankie advanced two belts in Karate,she is now a orange belt. I am so proud of her. Her bestfriend that asked Frankie to join Karate with her,quit. And Frankie never faltered and said of course I want to join again. Qualities of a leader hopefully,not a follower.

The photo that wouldnt load

All cousins and spouses,doing the "chee" smile. Italian joke with them.
These two pictures are from Joes other cousins wedding last year,but since I didnt have a blog back then,I will show them now.

My beautiful guest book girl:
A girl and her dad:
And our Lobster feast. My mom and dad went on a holiday to Nova Scotia(my moms dream)and flew 10 lobsters and freash scallops home.Yummo! That blond guy is my dad and yes biological!People always thought I must have been from a previous marriage my mom had.But since they been together since she was 15 and got married straight out of highschool.Its highly unlikely!They just celebrated their 33rd.
Arent they cute.They both are going though some health scares right now,they have had so much stress with my brother.I hope they will both be ok and live long and healthy lives.Love you both.
