Attention NHL Scouts: Vinny begins skating class

Vinny clings to his Daddy before class begins. He is not sure he wants to partake in this new sporting activity.

Vinny concentrating on the coaches instructions.

Calling all Scouts. I think he shows great potential.

Vinny was excited about completing his first skating class.

Talia's Baptism Day!

Saturday, June 16th, 2007 was Talia's big day. She was baptized! We had a small party at the house before the service at 5:30. Hey, big SHOUT OUT to JoAnne for providing the food! That was awesome. Everyone loved the chicken. However, the biggest lesson learned that day was to NEVER leave your cake unguarded. Ellie learned the hard way when she left her piece of cake at the table to wipe off her hands. When she returned to eat her cake, Vinny, had already polished it off. We gave Ellie another piece of cake and she left the table a second time to wipe her hands again, and this time Alissa finished Ellie's cake. Thank goodness Auntie Carolyn keeps a lot of cake in the house!

Are we done yet?

Hmmm. Nap time.

Vinny gives his sister a nice big kiss of congratulations.

Movin Out!

Scott, Jen, Alissa, and Elle Laurienzo have moved to a new home! Here is a picture. Isn't it beautiful? We just love it. Congratulations Laurienzo's!

On moving day, Alissa watched the kids so the big people could move furniture. She did a great job! As you can see, Alissa is a natural. She just loved holding Talia.... And Vinny, well, he just likes getting in on all the pictures.

Alissa shows off her fancy new bedroom.

This picture has nothing to do with the move. It's just Vinny being crazy!

She Blinded me with Science

A Day at the children's museum for Vinny. Vinny loved the water exhibits.
