More Christmas Pictures

Wonderful Christmas!

Wow Christmas sure did come and go so fast!! I hope that everyone had as good of time as we did and Santa brought you everything that you wanted. We started off our Christmas Eve with driving back up to Springfield to go to mass with my parents and my brothers. It was PACKED! We ended up having to stand in the back so needless to stay we didn't make it through the whole mass. We did our best but Tristan won the battle and we had to excuse ourselves. So off we went to our Grandma and Grandpa Ross' house. Now since we have Christmas with them before hand this is just a quick visit to say hello to all of our Aunts, Uncles and cousins. (And yes Uncle Jeff be sure you come and visit when you are down here doing your modeling LOL....we won't hold our breathe in anticipation of your arrival ) It was wonderful to see everyone and I was glad that we were able to stop in. After our visit there we then drove to my Aunt Nonny and Uncle Mark's house for the annual Moscardelli Christmas. Everyone was able to make it this year except for my cousin Cara who was at home sick! We even had a few new additions this year which is always lovely....Isabelle, Calynn and Andrea (my cousin Ryan's fiance...yeah yeah I know she was there last year but she wasn't his fiance then). We had a blast there and got to eat my favorite Saputo's Lasagne for dinner!!! After opening of gifts, watching Dom's winning video from the weekend before and lots of laughter it was time for us to head home. We drove back down to our home so that we could all be in bed for when Santa came.
The next morning Tristan and Isabelle got up and much to Tristan's amazement Santa brought him is chocolate donuts! (that is all that he asked Santa for this year) He was so very excited about it. He also got a Lightning McQueen power wheels which I think he would sleep in if we let him. Isabelle had a lot of fun playing in the wrapping paper. (Next year she will care about what is in the paper) After we got everything cleaned up Mom, Dad and the boys made their way down here for a late lunch and some tournament time on the Wii that Santa brought Sean and Tristan. All and all it was a great Christmas filled with lots of family time and fun!! I hope that everyone's Christmas was as wonderful as ours!

Merry Christmas at Grandma and Papa Moscardelli

Well the Christmas season is in full swing! We have had many holiday parties already but this past weekend was our big Christmas at Grandma and PaPa Moscardelli's. With the 3 older children having their own children and with 2 of us not living close to "home" we have started celebrating the weekend before. It is nice to get everyone together and let the kids play and enjoy their time with their cousins. This year Dad told us at Thanksgiving that he has come up with a new tradition. He wanted all of us to make a video, any type of video and then there would be prizes to go to everyone. All of us made a video except for Tony and it was so much fun to see what everyone came up with. The winner and most shocking video was Dominicks! He did such a good job and wowzers he can dance!!! GOOD JOB DOM....NEXT YEAR YOU ARE GOING DOWN! It was such a nice weekend and we all had such a good time!! Hope everyone else had a great weekend too!

Getting so big!

As I stated in my last blog our little Isabelle is growing by the minute. She is really coming into her own little personality....smiles, giggles and even a little temper. We are really enjoying every minute with her....although her big brother isn't really sure if he likes her moving and touching his things. I quite often hear "no no B-belle...mine...I big you little!" I thought that I would share this little video of her playing a small game of Peek-a-boo!
Hope everyone's holiday season is off to a good start!

Hello Hello! I am so sorry I have slacked on the blog. Moving into the house has been making us very very busy....along with work and the holidays.....BUSY! The house is coming along great. I promise to post some pics as soon as we get out of box crazyness! Tristan really likes his new house. He loves to run all over the place and not to mention he now has new spots to play hide-n-seek. Isabelle is doing great! Getting bigger and bigger. Today she is 8 months old. We have started army crawling which I will get on video and get that uploaded onto the blog.

This weekend Sean and I had our Thomson Reuters Holiday party. So...Tristan and Isabelle spent the weekend with Aunt Nessa, Uncle Brad, Avery and Tinley. I was worried for Vanessa's sanity but she seems to have made it through the weekend alive and still intact. I am hoping that she will post some of the pics that she took so you all can see on her blog. Sean and I had a great time at the holiday party. It was held at Windows on Washington and we had 3 floors of crazyness. As always we had a blast with our friends......maybe to much fun..:):)

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and I promise to post more often now that things will hopefully go back to normal:)

We are finally in!

I know I know so many people have been asking me....are you in? Yes we are finally in our new home. I am sorry that I am late on the blogging. Life this past week and a half has been crazy. We were finally able to start moving in on Wednesday late afternoon and boy is there still a lot to be done. The kids' rooms are getting there but our room oh lordy it looks like a hurricane came through...and for those of you that no me I mean worse than it normally does! I do however feel very very blessed that we now have this wonderful home to raise our children in. Sean and I just truly truly feel so lucky to have a home, a beautiful family, wonderful friends and just overall a blessed life. I know I know corny but I had to put it out there. I promise to post pics as soon as we get most of the boxes out of the house. I can't promise it will look fancy and decorated but at least there won't be boxes blocking the way.
I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. If any of you checked out my sister Vanessa's blog you will know that our Thanksgiving was very very short this year but still a good one. Ok back to work I go.....almost time to get the kiddies!

1 week and counting

Well there hasn't been much blogging this week because as most of you know we are between homes right now. Luckily we have some of the most wonderful friends ever and we are staying with our good friends Tammy and Shane. They have been nice enough to open up their homes to us and our 2 crazy kids. I thought that I would post about how our week is going. We moved out of our home last Saturday and moved everything into storage except for enough clothes to get us through the week. Mom and Dad kept the kids for us on Saturday so that we could get everything moved and out. On Sunday Mom brought the kids back and Tristan was very confused. For those of you that don't know Tammy and Shane live directly across the street from the home that we moved out of....the only home that Tristan has ever known. He just really had a hard time on why we couldn't just go home to his home. And he really really didn't understand why their were strangers over at his house and moving their stuff into his home. To say the least Sunday night and Monday morning were a little difficult. The rest of the week actually went by pretty fast. We didn't see our new roomates very much because Tammy had a crazy week of school and we had a crazy week of work. It is now Friday and if all goes as planned this weekend we should be moving into our new home on Tuesday afternoon.....Please mr City man gives us our certificate of occupancy.
I do want to say to thank you so much to all of our friends. We really do have the best friends in the world. We appreciate all of the people that have helped us, fed us, and just really been there for us!!! Ok well Sean just arrived with dinner. I will try to take some pics of the house this weekend so you can see how close we are:):) STAY WARM!

Happy Birthday Weekend!

Sorry it has been a while since the last post. We are getting so close on the house so life here is just insane. This past weekend the kiddies and I went up to Grandma's house. On Friday night we were able to go and see Uncle Tony play against his old school of Williamsville. (He now goes to Christ the King) Uncle Tony and the cougars did a great job and won the game. Tristan was SO SO EXCITED to be at the game. If you have ever spent just an hour with Tristan ever you know that he loves loves his basketball. He especially loves his basketball when his Uncle Tony is playing. After the game we were able to go out to dinner with a lot of my Aunts and Uncles and it was so nice to spend sometime with them.

Saturday we celebrated our little Camo's birthday. He turned 4 years old this Saturday. We had a small little gathering for him and he was in heaven. He got his Wii (bowling game as he likes to call it) from his Mom and Dad and then he got lots of action figures and puzzles from everyone else. Life in Camo world couldn't get any better.

This coming weekend we will be moving out of our home:( It is a bittersweet occasion. We are very excited to move into our new neighborhood and live close to Jaycie and Randy and Lacey and Mike will be just around the corner BUT we are moving away from Hammy and Hane! (Tammy and Shane) We love our Tammy and Shane and don't know what we are going to do without them when we move. Good thing that we aren't moving to far away and they can come and visit and we can still come and visit them. Although Tammy and Shane might get their fill of us next week when we temporarily move in with them LOL!!! Ok well I need to start working. Here are a few pics from our weekend.

Back shot!
Tristan and Kaelynn getting ready!
Another Halloween! Wow how time flies!! This year Tristan was really able to get into the halloween spirit. Sean kept telling him to say "Trick or Treat smell my feet!" So instead everybody got "Trick or Treat Feet!" We went to our friends Dave and Crystals to enjoy the evening. Kaelynn and Tristan thought it was so fun. Tristan not only chose his candy he also chose Kaelynn's candy as well. She didn't seem to mind because everytime he chose for her she would say "Thank you Tristan!" Hope everyone had a safe and happy halloween!

Our proofs are here!

Today we got back out proofs from Julie! She did an amazing job as usual but I almost think that these are the best ones to date. She always captures Tristan and Isabelle just perfectly. Here is a slideshow that she put together of her favorite ones.

What a great weekend.

This weekend was very busy but great. Saturday Sean did some work over at the new house and then we headed to our friends Rick and Amy for a little get together. We do these monthly with some of our friends and it is always so much fun. This time the kids played so nice together. Not a lot of hitting, crying or screaming. Thank you Rick and Amy for hosting this month!
On Sunday we had our family pictures taken at Forest Park by our favorite photographer Julie. ( She has been taking our pictures since Tristan was 2 months old. We visit her twice a year and she never fails us. She also took the Frye family picture yesterday so I am excited to see how that turned out. After pictures the Trammel family (except for Brad he was hunting) came up for a visit and the Fryes came over after their picture session. All of the kids got to play which was really exciting because they haven't all been together in months. Tristan loved that everyone came to his house. He is used to all of us being at Grandma's house. Here are a few pictures from our weekend. As soon as Julie has the slideshow up I will post the link for all to see!! Have a great week!
