Guess whose Back?

This might of been my longest break ever. So much has been going on since my last post. Life always seems to be crazy around these parts, we cant seem to go 6 months without one of my children needing a surgery. However, today is the day before Thanksgiving, and I'm reminded of just how much I have to be thankful for. I took a step back from the blog because I didn't want non deserving people to be able to see whats going on in the bambinos lives. If they make ZERO effort to see/care about them in real life why should they get to see them on the Internet?! However, I started this blog as a virtual baby book for my children, and they now have a 3 month blank spot. I will try my hardest to fill all the wonderful things we have been up to in. Frankie is LOVING Kindergarten, and we couldn't be happier with the school we picked for him. He/ we have made such wonderful new friendships via school =)  I must admit my 5 year old ( oh yes his 5th birthday snuck into my blog break) has a better social life then me these days!

I cant dwell on the past events I didn't get to post about but I can focus on the wonderful things in our very near future, starting with Thanksgiving. We are going to family again this year, it's nice to all be together. This year we get to celebrate my cousins engagement!! I could not be happier for her!! And I'm so honored I get to be part of her special day next November!  Then the kids have tons of Christmas events coming up including : parties ( one I'm hosting at our home), breakfast with Santa, and pageants!  Then of course there is the actual holiday!

I just picked Frankie up from school where he went on a class trip to see Frozen in 3d today!! He loved it and asked to go to the Disney Store later and get a stuffed animal, I think I can make that happen =) I have all 3 of my babies cozy in our warm house, with a big pot of sauce cooking and a Pumpkin Pie baking in the oven, just waiting for big frank to leave work and come home so we can start our holiday =)

Gigi is recovering nicely from a surgery she had this week, so I'm feeling extra blessed.

Ava is spending her day coloring pictures for all her family , getting better and better at staying in the lines.

Yes I have A LOT to be thankful for this year and always. I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Ava's 1st day of Pre-K

Ava started Pre-K on Wednesday, and just like Frank and I had suspected, she cried!  But after talking to her all Wednesday night and some bribing with Littlest Pet Shop toys, she went in Thursday  a little nervous but came out all smiles and told me "Mommy I had so much fun!". I can not believe my baby girl ( and shes still a baby only 3!) is in Pre-K.  I know she is going to have a great year and learn lots. She will miss Frankie this year for sure ( he's going to Kindergarten at a different school)  but I think the separation will be good for her. It will force her to branch out a little bit. So without further ado Ava RitaAnn's PreK survey.

No Big Deal, Gianna Walks!

So at 13 months Gigi decided it was time! Yesterday was when she decided to give this walking thing a try

How adorable is my girl?!
