Vinny's 5th Birthday

The Birthday boy!

Talia showing off the new pajams's that match her cheeks!

A snorkel for the pool and probably the bathtub too.

Maria and Talia

Some cake for TT

Maria likes her cake in a bowl with milk, just like Grandpa Bob taught Chris and Carolyn.
Grandpa Bob made it out of the hospital just in time!
Auntie Chris and Talia

Vinny see's his brand new bike!

Too bad this bike couldn't hold air in the back tire, so we brought it back and Vinny picked out a bluish/purple bike that is just as cool as this one!

Maria keeps Talia busy in the car while Vinny tries his new bike outside. It was cold out!

The "real" birthday day. Some looks excited!

Mom and Vinny on their special day. Um, Talia was a picture crasher. We didn't mind.

Vinny had his party at Grand Slam. They have all kinds of fun stuff for kids to do.

Vinny and his cousin Alissa playing in the "playzone"

"I scared".....Talia didn't care for the playzone. It was too loud and nerf balls fired out of cannons were not fun for her.

Some of the party guests.....

Vinny's theme was "Army"

Strawberry cupcakes....mmm.

Enough of that playzone, this is what I wanted!
Dad shows off his virtual jump-roping skills.

Alissa and Ellie on Dance Dance Revolution EXTREME!

Look at that face. I don't think he likes presents.

Lot's of giggles from the Laurienzo girls.
This is fun stuff!

GI Joe! Man, I am going to be busy for days! Happy Birthday Buddy!

Flag Football

Vinny has joined a fooball league! He gets to play every Saturday from 1:00-2:00 in Shakopee! He has his very own jersey ( # 5 ) and some very excited fans (Mom, Dad, and Talia). Saturday Vinny did so well, he won a medal for being the "Best Listener". Now if he could just earn that same medal at home! He also ran for a touchdown last Saturday. It may have been the wrong direction, but at this age, we will take them anyway you can get them.

Hangin with his team

Talia keeping busy on the sidelines.

Is it over yet?

A girl can only watch so much football.

Easter 2009

While Talia napped peacefully upstairs, Vinny kept busy coloring eggs. He had so much fun we had to go buy another kit and do it all again the next day!

A special smile on Easter morning.

Talia waits for her brother to get dressed.

Easter morning with Daddy!

Quick..hurry ...take the picture.

This is the best we could do. Talia doesn't like to sit still, Vinny likes to make faces!

Is Talia already hunting for eggs?

Grandpa came by with Grandma for an Easter dinner.

Big Smiles!

Bright sun! Squinting eyes! We love spring!

Talia, Maria, Joe, Vinny.

Look what I found!

Wow...they are all over the place!

How many did I get?
Easter Fun!
That is a big basket!

Has someone been eating my chocolate eggs? Mom?
