Gabriel Feeling Sorry for Mommy

Gabriel and Jonathan have Italian shirts, either from soccer, or friends have brought them back from Italy. We have decided that carrying on the Italian from Jonathan's side is very important, especially since he is not around any of that family right now. Jonathan has even bought the "learn how to speak Italian" series so he can make sure to pass this on to Gabriel.

So, the other night when I was putting on his Italian shirt as a PJ, and brushing his teeth...he looked up at me and said "Gabriel's Itagon, Daddy's Itagon,.....Pooooor mommy, mommy's not Itagon." :o)

What is Wrong With This Picture

Anything look out of place?

Well. This is what I came home to today. Bailey and Rocco decided to dig around in a bag I had that had pantry items that we had picked up from someone's house. It had 4 boxes of chocolate bars for cooking...sugar...jello...3 boxes of duncan hines chocolate somethings...and who knows what else. I almost cried as I looked at the red and brown stains on our new carpet. And you know how red jello is....especially if it gets wet!!!! I've cleaned once...letting it dry and will try again.
NOW Bailey has started throwing up........................Joy.

Grocery Update for Those Interested

I tried out the today when I went shopping...and I saved $66!! It came up to 30% of the total.

Very easy. I only registered for one store in my area, but, I'm tempted to add another after seeing the results!

PJ Day at School

This morning was PJ and movie day at school. So, Gabriel got to wear his Kung Fu Panda PJ's, and eat popcorn basically for breakfast. But, he had fun, and that's what counts.

Saving Money

I am on a quest to see how much I can save when I grocery shop...rather than just blindly shopping every 2-3 days. A friend of ours passed along this link last night, and I joined it today.

I'll update you in a week and let you know how it's working for me. Check it out!

A Little Guitar Hero

We had our friends, Amanda and Rob over on Friday night for a little Mexican food and margaritas. And what would the night be without Rob breaking out with his guitar hero. This is the only picture I got, but I thought the boys would appreciate that we WERE actually watching.

4th of July Vacation

We went to CT for a week to visit Jonathan's family. Gabriel had so much fun starting from the plane ride, where I came prepared with movies and a bag of popcorn, to playing with his Bacca's and his cousins. We stayed very busy, as we always do, but it was a quality visit. On the 4th, we went to a pool party, and the kids and boys had a great time. Ending the night with fireworks, and then after putting Gabriel to bed, Jonathan and I stuck around for a little late night music with some of the cousins. We also got to go up to Boston for a night to visit with my friend, Sarah, and we had the chance to stop by Nick and Julia's and see their new house in Mass. There are a ton of pictures, so I thought the slide show would be the easiest way to share these.

Hope everyone had a great 4th!
