My 365 Project - 31

Did I really just post for 31 days in a row?! Not entirely sure how that happened what with preschool, music class, laundry, cleaning, cooking, errand-running, family time, play-dates, weekends away, and just plain I-don't-wanna-do-anything-time. But I did. Yay.

One month down, eleven more to go. Double Yay.

The girls were extra revved up tonight and were being so silly at bedtime. I love it and it makes me smile but sometimes that means we're not going to sleep right away. Actually, most times it means they're going to be up for awhile longer talking and playing instead of going to sleep. Oh well, sleep is overrated anyway.  For me it's overrated, for them they need it big time.

On another note, I just cut Olivia's hair for probably the second time in her life last week. She never really had much hair, it wasn't until 18 months or so that you could even tell she had hair.

Case in point, here she is at 21 months old:

See what I'm saying she really didn't even have much hair then and I had trimmed the bangs part so it wasn't falling into her eyes.

But here she is this evening and she would not stand still to get a good picture. Or maybe I just don't know how to use my camera when my child is moving around so fast. But believe it or not, that one haircut last week has completely turned her hair around. Now, it's still on the thinner side when compared to Sofia's hair but I think we're going to get there.

Our day...library in the morning which make the girls faces light up like you would not believe and then a surprise to pick up Daddy from work to go to lunch in downtown Media. I don't have to tell you how their faces lit up when they saw our surprise lunch guest get in the car.

My 365 Project - 29

I made a brunch today before mass and boy was it delicious! It was so good that I had to take a picture of my mountain of deliciousness - eggs, browned potatoes, bacon, shredded cheddar and sour cream. YUMMY!

Obviously, the girls do well with this kind of breakfast too...not so much the potatoes but definitely the bacon! They definitely take after their parents!

My 365 Project - 28

My man. I love him so much.

A visit with Zia Rosina

We took a two hour drive to North Jersey to visit Anthony's Zia Rosina today. A super sweet lady who the girls really take to and who I admire a lot. Such a good heart. She's not been doing too great the past few months and it's a shame to say that we haven't visited in awhile. But today we changed that around and went to spend some time together.

I didn't bring my camera and relied on my camera phone, which was soon taken out of my hands by Sofia mia. Little girl has learned to take pictures with the phone and she had a field day over there taking pictures of everything. I downloaded the ones of just us since the visit was just that...about us spending time with Zia.

Ok, I did take the phone back to take a picture of Sofia and Zia Rosina. And Mickey Mouse. And the necklace that Sofia made and took for Zia which she proudly put on the second she opened it up. Sofia was so proud!

I'm sorry that this picture came out blurry but I love it just the same.

My 365 Project - 24

Bursting, that is the word that comes to mind when looking at these flowers on my dining room table. I'm not sure what kind of flower they are, maybe some type of mum, but Anthony picked them up for me from the grocery store and I love them.

More from Fermo, Italia

Back to Italy pictures! After our afternoon with Leandro and Alessandra, we headed over to his family's house for pizza. Leandro made the pizza, about 30 to be exact. And it was hard to say which was my favorite since they were all so good. Everything was fresh and homemade...molto delizioso!

Chef at work

Girls playing while waiting for pizza, they are easily amused by flowers and leaves outside. Here they're playing with basil.

Leandro and his Nonna working the brick oven...which is really how every pizza should be made.

Buddies Anthony and Leandro

La Famiglia!

Gelato date for Sofia and Leandro...so cute!

B is for Brownies. And it's also for bananas which is what I used instead of vegetable oil to bake these brownies. Supposed to be better for you but mine came out a little too banana-y. Still, brownies are brownies.

My 365 Project - 21

Dinner and a movie with my favorite person...my husband. Tower of rings at Red Robin. Still not a fan of onion rings. Burger was delicious though. And movie, Mission Impossible 34, was very good too.

A tree grows in Fermo

Now about this picture...how do you open this door??

Fermo with friends

During our 3-night stay in Alba, we headed up to the region of Le Marche to visit with very good friends Leandro and Alessandra.  Incredible friends, we are lucky to have them in our life. Even though we only see them about once or twice a year, it feels as if we never miss a beat and just keep rolling with our lives together. The girls love them too and we know how much they love the girls. We visited with them at their gorgeous apartment in the quaint town of Fermo. The view from their windows in beyond spectacular.

Later we took the girls to a park for them to run around and have some fun in the beautiful weather. 

Pictures to come....Leandro's delicious feast at his family's house. Can we say homemade, brick-oven pizza that was out of this world?!?!?
