Hanging Around in the Basement...

Hi Everyone! I just want you to know that I am still alive and kicking... I am enjoying the time I can spare for my ds and dh. My ds is napping right now, so there's not a lot of exciting things to do. My pictures are downloading... and seems to be up soon. I will be sharing them through kodak gallery and multiply.

I hope the 2008 is a great year for you and 2009 will be even better! Happy new year from my family to yours! tfr

The Pellizzari's Xmas Party

My df held an advance New Years Party at their residence last night. We tag along our little boy and we're off the meet new friends. It's always nice to meet new friends and rekindle old ones. We had a lot of fun! We enjoyed their company, the food was good, and above all, they're very good host.

Our X-mas Party

It's our little tradition to invite family and friends to our humble abode around this time of the year. We dine together, have some laughs, talk just about anything, and of course, we don't forget to take out the mic and sing.

Singing along (karaoke) is a lot of fun. I enjoyed watching my neice who does not speak a word of my native tongue sing my native song! And be good at it! It's amazing. Once again, I'm reminded that music is a universal language.

This year, we enjoyed the company of my df L and her dh and ds, my sil and her ds and dd, and everdearest gf and adopted gm, Lola Connie.

It's around this time of the year that I wish (more than other times of the year) for my two worlds to be one! Well, wishing is free so I might as well wish for the impossible!

gifts for McKale

For our ds, my dh and I decided to get him a little something to open on the Christmas morning. We bought him a collector's edition Hess Truck, this is our little tradition for him. He really loves trucks and vehicles of any kind that we thought getting him a truck that sounds like one would be cool!

We also got him some socks and shirts from Gymboree and children's place(my favorite kids' store)! I thought that that was too much, gosh! They're so expensive! I guess our ds deserves some nice clothes once a year. (I am just so used to hand-me-downs, good wills, consignments clothes, etc).

The best gift of all, that I know for sure we can offer him, is our love, attention, and care. I hope that we can instill that in him as he grows up.

I stayed up late tonight to watch survivors 2-hour finale. It was fun to see Bob, the Physics teacher from Maine, win. I was rooting for him all along. I knew he could outlast and outwit anyone in that contest.
