Philadelphia Union game with the family this past weekend and lots of fun. We completely lucked out with the weather as it has rained for the last 28 days (give or take) and we ended up with a beautiful day and evening for a soccer game.
Girls come for the soccer AND sweet treats!
Our man was awesome, enjoyed it all. Snacks and soccer.

What a wonderful idea for a spot to open in our town for painting parties! Genius! Friendly and patient art instructor for the 18 girls we had for Olivia's 7th birthday party this past weekend and all of the girls were so good and very much into their painting.
My birthday girl getting into the painting groove...
At the almost finished stage of the painting...
Big sister came too of course and had a great time!
Very serious about following the instructor along...
Finito! And so proud of her work! As she should be since she picked the painting out herself for the group to paint.
Perfect birthday party!

One of the many favorite videos of Olivia singing and makes me smile each time I see it. Our bright, artistic, friendly and kind little girl turns 7 tomorrow. She is the icing on the cake for our family and we all know it. Such a sweet, determined and creative little girl. I love my Olivia bella so much!
sweetness with a little bit of spice...
my little dreamer...
outdoor loving little girl.
Happy Birthday to the best little sister and big sister we could have for Sofia and Mario. You light up our lives and makes us smile all the time with your silly jokes, make our heart swell with your beautiful singing and make us so proud at how hard you try at everything. We love you so much!

After what seemed like days and days of rain (honestly it was just so many consecutive days of gray clouds and rain lately) the sun finally showed up and on a perfect day too, Gabrielle Hayes Pitocco's baptism day. It was a beautiful ceremony, performed by Deacon Nonno Nicky, and then a reception at the perfect party house - Scott and Chaela's home! Truly special day spent with loved ones for our newest member of the family!
No party of ours would be complete without the wonderfully beautiful and delicious cookies of our dear friend The Midnight Baker!
And no parties a party without some cake! I think Gabriella might have a sweet tooth later on like the rest of the family!

Another idea from Pinterest brought to real life and I love it. Found this shelf, bought dollar store hooks, screwed them in (well, Anthony did that part for me) and hot glued a tiny ceramic bowl. Viola! It was that simple!
Tons of ideas online and I went with a simple one and really love how it turned out. Nice little piece of wall art too!
