Christmas Eve and Christmas Day 2009

Christmas Eve Day began at the Laurienzo house as we celebrated along with the rest of the Laurienzo clan. A perfect day filled with good food, presents and a perfect blanket of fresh snow just in time for Christmas! On Christmas Day everything began a little slower as people shoveled their way out ... We made it over to the Kirschner house right before noon and had another great day with more food, more presents and more snow! I can't remember the last time we had such a beautiful white Christmas! Awesome.

A couple of weeks before Christmas I took Talia to see Disney on Ice "Princess Classics". Talia wore her Snow White princess gown and had a great time.

Talia was so surprised when the show began, but she loved every minute of it. Especially the Seven Dwarfs.

Christmas Eve morning.

A wink for you. Or does she just have something in her eye?

After church we couldn't resist some playtime in the snow. It was a beautiful night to be outside.

Vinny worked hard to get his name off the naughty list.....

Wow... A Nintendo DSi. Santa is soooo cool.

Talia isn't sure what to think of the glitter spray that is being put into her hair.

Ahhh, a new coat.... sweet. Ok. I was really thinking more toys would be good.

Vinny was very excited to get a Wild Jersey so he could match his big cousin, Joe.
