Dominic turns 6!

My big guy turned 6 yesterday! We had a park playdate and cupcakes for his birthday. Then at home later he got to open presents. He got new shirts, a pillow pet and his skateboard and gear. So far he is a little afraid of falling, which is fine with me because he goes slowly. :)

Baby bump - 35 weeks.

Not the most glamorous picture in the world but here it is. 35 weeks preggo. Feeling pretty great. I spent over a month this summer with major back pain. I finally got a chiro to work it out for me. Anyway, we are all getting very excited for baby to make his/her arrival. We are also excited to see what we get girl or boy. :)

First dress I ever made.

I had some awesome corduroy fabric that I wanted to make something with, so I attempted a dress. Other than having a small problem with the pattern, it turned out pretty well. Its just a simple over the head dress. It fits her pretty well. I can see a few things that I would make differently next time. I am planning on making a matching one for me baby niece. I think it will be so cute to get the two girls in a picture together. The dress is a very bright navy blue with the green and white paisley which looks awesome on my brunette who has blue eyes.

Gioia turns 8!

My sweet girl turned 8 last month! She is getting so big. She is so smart and really fun to be around. She had a slumber party for her birthday. They had a great time.

120th Annual Jameson Picnic

This past weekend Aug.11-13th was the Jameson Picnic. It is our little hometown fair. Its been going on for 120 years and though it has gotten much smaller, it is still really fun. The weather was GREAT for once.

The kids were in the Talent show on Thursday night.
Gioia sang "When you say nothing at all" by Allison Krauss. She won 2nd place in the 7-12 age group. Dominic got up there last minute and sang one verse of "You are my Sunshine." He also got 2nd place. Of course there were only 2 kids in Dominics age group 0-6.

Then on Friday night Luca was in the baby show. He didn't win but thats ok. Zoey (my sisters baby) won the 0-6 month girls group. She is super adorable.

Saturday was a parade and kid games. Dominic got 1st place in the Watermelon eating contest. Gioia won the sack race. Luca won 2nd in pennies in the sand game. So they all won in some game. Dominic won a few more things that I am forgetting right now. I think he won a place in the sack race too.
