Merry CHRISTmas!

This past Saturday we had the first and second of many wonderful Christmas gatherings. It started with the Bolone Christmas. We celebrated early this year as the Walkers headed south to celebrate in the warm weather of Marco Island.

Enjoy the pics:

Our nephew Blake (he is three weeks older than Carson)

Our niece Brooke (She is two months younger than Fin)

Granny, Aunt Carol and Uncle John (three of the seven siblings)

Brian (Jay's brother-in-law), Kristie (Jay's sister) and Brooke

Family eating the wonderful homemade ravioli (Gigi, Gino's girlfriend, Gino, Josh, Johnny, Paul, Andrea and Uncle Fred)

Jay and his Mom

Carson looking handsome and enjoying some presents.

Dan (Jay's cousin) and I

Aunt Carol, Granny, Brooke and Kristie

Me, Gigi and Johnny (yes, eat, DRINK and be merry)

Blake and Fin (Fin is obsessed with Blake)


After the Bolone party we headed over to Margie and Marty's house for a fun night with friends. We had a wonderful time.The kids played Wii and made themselves busy. Margie and Marty have two dogs (a golden and a lab). They are the BEST. My boys were totally entertained by them all night. Thank you both very much!

Fin, Carson and Jack (Lisa and Eric's son)

Samantha and Fin (Lisa and Eric's daughter)

Margie, Amy and Heather (Jay's good friends from school. They are now good friends of mine too)

Marty and Drew (Little cutie born in Aug.)

Blurry pic - I said they were busy (Jack, Carson, Sam and Fin)

Amy and Chris

This looks cute but what starts out cute usually ends up in a fight.


Eric and Bella (Lisa and Eric's fourth child. I did not get a good pic of Kyle their oldest but he is just as beautiful as the whole family)

Jack (Lisa and Eric's third child) - mostly referred to as Jack-Jack

Tomorrow starts three straight days of Christmas celebrations. I have a few gifts to wrap up and things to get ready. We are so very blessed to have such wonderful families and friends.

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Love you - Em
