Cara and Matt

Cara, Bob the bear and Matt.  Love it when they're home visiting from Penn State!


Christmas Day is finally here!  We had the best time waking up early to see the fun gifts Santa left, and opening all the gifts under the tree.  This year we had our celebration at Uncle Joe's house.  Grandma was in her 3rd week of recovery and doing well so we thought we'd give her a break and move the party to Joe and Sylvie's.  Unfortunately Ann, Mark and the girls couldn't make it because they were all home sick but Carrie and Kris stopped by with the babies so we could get a sneak peak and hug before they were off to see Kris's family.  I say this all the time, but there really is nothing better than being with family and thankfully we have a big one.  I just wish someday ALL of our family could be together.  And most importantly we are thankful for having Jesus in our lives and wish him Happy Birthday!

Grandma is doing great!

Christmas Eve

One of our favorite nights... the night before Christmas!  We went to Mass and listened to the girls sing.  We then went to Ginny and Gene's to open presents and enjoy the most delicious Christmas dinner.  Ginny always goes all out to spoil us and make our night fun and memorable.  We love Ginny and Gene, they are the BEST!  And we always love our special time together!

 Presents galore!

 Van's new boots... just like Dad's!
 Best present ever... a new TV!

 Josette and Ginny made these cute Christmas pj's.
Thanks for a great night!  We love you!!!!!!

Candy Cane Lane

Another Christmas tradition is to stroll Candy Cane Lane... a huge section in Redondo filled with lights, decorations, treats and tons of people.
