Our Christmas

My parents and brother came to our house for Christmas as they do every year. On Christmas Eve it is tradition for my dad to read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to my boys before they go to bed. This year, Zachary wanted to read the story. He is such a good reader. They really love this and look forward to it every year.
Christmas morning, the boys woke up at 5am! We managed to hold them off until 7:00. I'd say it was worth the wait. Zachary and Connor were such good boys all year that Santa got them
a WII!

As you can see, they were quite excited! I think Zachary was in shock. They got several games for it and have been playing it non stop. One of their favs is Guitar Hero. Zachary is really good at it too!
My brother, Tony got the boys these jerseys. Connor's is a Travis Hafner and Zachary's is Peyton Manning. They wore them all day long.
I love this photo. It is my mom, dad, and brother with my boys on Christmas day. Don't worry mom, I will email you a copy.

Nicole, her husband Mike, daughter Allie and mom Elaine came over for dinner Christmas day. My mom and I made our traditional Italian feast. We started off with antipasto. The main course was stuffed shells, meatballs, and eggplant Parmesan. Everything was yummy and I think Elaine died and went to heaven! After dinner, Erika and her family came for dessert. Nicole brought Cannolis and some other Italian pastry that I cannot spell. Both were so good.

Now we are getting ready for Christmas part 2. Eddie's family arrives this afternoon.
