Where Did Thanksgiving go?

Halloween seems to be the start of the whirlwind that takes us through the holiday season. Now that Christmas is only a few short weeks away, I find that I am behind on my blogging and picture taking again! We didn't take too many Thanksgiving pictures, so I will share what we have and also throw in a few pre Christmas photo's. Happy Christmas Shopping!

Talia is becoming a big girl. So grown up!

For those of you who wonder why we don't cut Vinny's hair, just know that it has been cut since this picture was taken. I think it's a great look for a future rock star!

Ohhh Scott. You always surprise us with your fashion forwardness.

Vinny is dreaming of sugarplum fairies...... ok, he is really dreaming of Santa bringing him a Nintendo DS

So sad. When does the cookie decorating start?

GG the doll stalker..... don't take my dolls or I breaka your face.

"I think commercialization is the essence of Christmas"

What is JoAnne wishing for this Christmas? Thanks for the great party Jo...always a good time!

Talia shares some conversation with her cousin Ellie Laurienzo

Finally.....the cookie decorating.

Lauren and Shelby are immune to the antics of a five year old boy who has had too much sugar.

Ellie shows off her masterpiece cookie!

Little GG taking a break from all the action.

Ho Ho Ho..... the Guest of Honor!

Ellie had a nice visit with Santa...

Although Vinny found his name on the "naughty" list, Santa was kind enough to give him another chance to behave before Christmas Eve.

TT wasn't sure what to think of this guy, but she did cave in and let us put her on his lap.
