Catching up: Take One

34
It is with a shame filled heart and a head hanging low that I write this post...I can't believe that I am so far behind! I am not going to even try to catch up. It's been bascially alot of kid stuff and the usual chaos. I am just going to share our Halloween, Thanksgiving and recent birthday parties and hope to have some extra time eventually...like maybe 2021???!

Ok...First things first, Birthday party #1: my nephew and godson Dylan turned 6. What a fun age! We went to Mom and Dad's for dinner and some cake. He had a spooky cake with a big spider on it! Gia was not real sure about the spider, especially after Chris told her that he squished it on the cake as it was running by.



Dylan and his best buddy, Bobby...otherwise known as Isaac.



Gramma Gaggini and Aiden


Mema and AD-Joe


Miss Nicole looking fierce and trying to smile with her eyes...





Abby trying to "pet" Aiden...sorry it's so fuzzy.






Miss Isabella and her flowing mane of curls


Me and the girls... We were so filled with hope for our beloved Steelers (at the time).


Jake was the opitome of hope for the black and gold. He is defintely his father's son. (duh!)




Noah and Hannah




Abby was not quite sure that she was ready to be awake. Baby Francesca was not quite sure if she was quite ready to be born...she wasn't.


Next in line for our crazy fall activites was Halloween. We had a couple of princesses, Spiderman and a pirate, not to mention the scary teenagers....AHHHH!!!





Here is just part of the loot!!!! Can you even imagine?! We are still eating it.

Next we went on to our many Thanksgiving dinners. Unfortunately my stupid camera battery wasn't cooperating and I am missing pictures from a few of the dinners.

Dinner number one was dinner at Babee's (aka Joan or to Brian, Mom). Sorry no pictures for this one, but I can assure you that the dinner was quite yummy and the compnay delightful.
Dinner number two was in Dubois with Nanny and Poppa Hough (aka, Marge and Bill or D). Again yummy food and sparkling conversation. We ate and ate and ate. We left with full bellies and happy hearts.



Aiden and Poppa Hough




Nanny and Poppa Hough with all of the grandchildren (except for Chad and Denee's newest one that is still in the forming and growing process!!! Yay new baby!). What a good looking group of Houghs, don't you think?



Gianna and the boys...kind of like Gladys Knight and her Pipps.




Rexton is going to make a great big brother! See how much he LOVES his baby cousin!

Dinner number three was at Mema and Poppy's house with my mom's side. Such good food and ham which was nice since we were stuffed on turkey. (Get it stuffed on turkey!! I know, kind of lame, but you know that you smiled.) Again, stupid camera battery low, no pictures from that dinner. But you can just imagine this. We were all looking kind of bloated and greasy and happy from all of the food.

Dinner number four and our final Thanksgiving dinner of the year, was at my parents house aka Mama and Pap-pap's with the Gaggini side. It was once again a time with tons of delicious food and tons of family. My cousin tricia is in the military and is currently overseas. We had a very special treat when her husbadn brought his laptop in and we were able to see and talk to her when he skyped her! It was a wonderful way to remember how truly thankful we all should be to the men and women who are daily risking their lives for us in the military. THANK YOU Trish!! We went from having no babies on this side of the family to having 15 kids from age 7 down!!! That's not counting the tweens and teens!






Babies Babies everywhere!!!!



Gianna is completely smitten with her newest baby cousin, Francesca Elaine.
