Merry Christmas

What a wonderful Christmas! We started off celebrating the holiday on Christmas Eve at Richard and Marisa's house. They had some friends over, made a wonderful dinner and had a gift exchange. On Christmas morning our family was up bright and early and opened gifts. Then we went up to Nonna and Nonno's house, had some breakfast and celebrated some more. We finished our Christmas day with my family. We had dinner at our house and opened the last of the gifts. I'm pretty sure Elio loved every second of the day. He had so much fun taking the wrapping paper off all the gifts and playing with everything.

On another note...Kyle and I had our 36 week check up. We went to meet the doctor that is going to deliver for us. Unfortunately the midwifes don't deliver here, so we have to have a doctor do it. Anyway we were able to get another sonogram. This doctor said he thought we would be having a girl, but he also said he wasn't 100% sure because of the way the baby was positioned. So far we have had 4 sonograms, 2 say boy and 2 say girl. I guess it's going to be a surprise!

Elio wasn't overly excited to see Santa Clause, but at least he didn't cry!

Nico's Room

Here's a little preview of Nico's room. It's almost done, just a few finishing touches left!

I found these pictures and it turned into our inspiration for the room. (click to enlarge)

I love shoes! My new fav's...Black Juicy Couture Sneakers (Thanks Melissa!)

I still have to hang his name.

Christmas Tree Hunting

This year will be our first Christmas in our new home. Last year we were so close to moving in, but didn't quite make it. We started our own family tradition this year. Kyle, Elio and I went out to the Raisanen's Tree Farm, we searched for the perfect tree and Kyle sawed it down for us. We came home and decorated it, the tree looks wonderful, however Elio is enjoying taking the ornaments off the tree instead of putting them on. Our Christmas shopping is pretty much done and Kyle put lights up outside our house, so I think we officially ready for Christmas!
