Family Weekend!

This weekend was busy but we had lots of fun with our brothers, sisters, in-laws, cousins, aunts and uncles! It started with “Jonny-Lisa” coming over. We had some serious competitions in the back yard and then we walked to the gelato store and met Willie.

Marc is very good at it! He was able to get lower but I was unable to get it on the camera.

Jimmy has a few tricks up his sleeve!

Aunt Lisa knows how to synchronize her pushing!

She’s also great with the jazz hands!

He’s awesome!

We played this game where you had to throw or roll the ball into the hula hoop. As you can see, Lisa did not succeed on that try!

Today we all gathered in one pew to celebrate Olivia’s first communion. It was a joy to witness!

Unfortunately, I did not get any of Olivia but I will add some later when I get them from the many others on the other end of the pew.

Adding some now! Isa loves, loves, loves Olivia!

Here’s a great one of the whole family and Father Wayne Watts.

Rosie and Isla are full on best buds that annoy and love one another! It’s so awesome to watch.

Miss Aga!

Aga took this one of my favorite nephew and I! I love Mr. Al…he’s so huggable!

DSC08674

Everyone’s reading Olivia’s newspaper. It was fabulous. She made several copies and they were all produced by her with an identical article in each. That takes perseverance! 

DSC08675

Happy First Communion to you, Olivia!

DSC08681

I don’t know what was going on but I love how they are doing the same thing!

DSC08689

So wacky! I think Isla can jump!

DSC08695

Now much closer to the same height.

DSC08696

Jimmy’s turn!

Isla loves Uncle Marc!

Fun times!

Spring Break / Easter / Isa’s birthday

It’s a cold rainy day in April and both Rosie and Jimmy are asleep so I thought I would catch the family up with some photos.

We had a nice low key Easter. We had a small Easter egg hunt at our house and a bigger one at Grandma’s house.

If something edible was inside the egg, Jimmy ate it right away.

Sometimes it’s tricky to see the eggs!

Jimmy had a concert at school. He didn’t sing one word. He looked so tired. I didn’t want to send him to school but knowing there was a concert, I did. This was the best picture I got, he just noticed us! He made us feel like a million bucks.

A good night’s rest looks like this for the girls…not so much for Marc and I.
