My Birthday Girl

Grace is 6!  I just can’t believe it!  How can it be that this tiny little peanut…



Is now such a big girl??


Grace celebrated with her friends and all of our family with an ice skating party!  It was so much fun!



Nanny made ice skate cupcakes!  The kids had a blast and all the grownups were sore the next day from all the activity!


On her actual birthday, I had promised her that we would go to Toys R Us to pick out her birthday gift.  She knew exactly what she wanted – a Cinderella dress.  She came right home and put it on!  Her brothers gave her a CD player and the new Kidz Bop CD, and we spent the night having a dance party!


Happy Birthday to my beautiful girl…you have a heart of gold, and even though we make each other crazy sometimes, I am so lucky to be your mom!  You make me proud everyday with how generous and considerate you are.  May all your wishes come true!

High Green Belt

A few weeks ago, in the pre-Christmas craziness, Seamus tested for his Tae Kwon Do high green belt!  Pics are not great because I only had my phone, but it was an impressive ceremony and the kids all did a great job.


Yeah high green!  Great job Seamus!

Second Christmas

We are so lucky to be able to celebrate a second Christmas every year with the Camenga side of the family.  It is so great to get all the cousins together and watch the craziness unfold!


It doesn’t take too long before we have wrestling…


Wheelbarrow racing…


And airplane flying!


Of course, the most exciting part is present time!  The kids had a blast opening up gifts from Grandma and Grandpa, and aunts and uncles.


Grace and Madison are two peas in a pod!


Liam was worn out after that fun night!


The next morning, it was time to play in Grandma and Grandpa’s mountain of snow!


Then it was off to Aunt Gloria’s for more Christmas fun and MORE cousins to play with!

Our “plaid-clad” boys!


And the lovely girls!


And of course, when cousins get together, it doesn’t take long for the fun to begin…we learned about the “Christmas wedgie” and practiced acrobatics in Aunt Gloria’s living room!


Then we were all entertained with a little Christmas Gangnam Style!

We hope your holidays were as merry as ours were!
