Our Christmas 2010

Well, as you can see I took TONS of pictures to capture the memories of Christmas 2010 for our family! These are some of the highlights of our past few days...being surrounded by friends and family is what we love most! As you can see, I'm still playing with all of the settings on this new camera, hopefully I can practice and start taking some great pictures that will last a lifetime!

All of the cousins exchanged gifts last night! We have a HUGE Italian side of our family on my mom's side and we've made it a tradition each year to exchange gifts between all of the kiddos and play all day :)

Jacob's Four-Wheeler that he talked about every day for the past year...Thanks Santa (and Aunt Paulette) for making this happen!!
Check out those John Deere boots too-compliments of MeMe and he hasn't taken them off since he opened them Christmas Eve, he has the blisters to prove it! Ha!

My husband's Dad, the boys call him "Pop", was SO happy that we made him this Hook 'Em Horns blanket to go with his collection!!

My husbands Dad, Justin, my husband, Jacob and Gran, we're so happy that she spent Christmas with us this year!

My dad was able to come and visit Christmas Day to see the boys and brings lots of gifts too! A lot of people say my dad and Jacob look a lot alike, what do you think??!

Hope you all had a VERY, Merry's looking forward to 2011!!

I think Jacob and your dad look A LOT alike! This looks like a really fun day for all the cousins - it's great to foster these friendships now; they'll stay so close as adults. The four-wheeler looks like so much fun!

Wowee! What more could a boy ask for than John Deere boots and his own four wheeler? He looks so happy! It's so nice to see Jacob giving his little bro a turn - what a great picture.

Love the John Deere tractor Justin got too. Your boys couldn't be more "boy" if they tried!

Love the photo of all the cousins in the playhouse. I grew up close to my cousins and we still get together once a year, unfortunately not at Christmas anymore. For the past two years we had a summer reunion because in northern Ontario the weather is just too unpredictable. I miss shopping for all the little ones now that my own are all grown!

Oh Marissa everyone looks so happy! I love seeing my friends having such a super holiday! It is amazing how much your dad and Jacob look alike! It would be neat to see your dad's picture at that age next to Jacob's. I want to wish you a very happy New Year full of laughter, happiness and great health! I hope you have a good night!

Cute pictures! It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas!

I think Jacob and your Dad look a lot alike too. Oh, and I love those John Deere boots and the fact that Jacob's been wearing them non-stop. (My little guy got a "Four Wheeler" for Christmas too, but thank goodness, it's pretty slow...otherwise, I'd probably have a nervous breakdown with him on that thing.) It looks like you had one wonderful Christmas, Marissa!

Photos look GREAT! So glad you got your new camera! It's a must with blogging, huh? :) I have a Nikon d90, which I still don't know all the features on b/c I haven't had time to sit down and learn, but I LOVE the photos it takes! :)

I love the pictures! That four wheeler is awesome! We might have to look into that as a birthday gift for our boys =). I am so happy you had such a great Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful New Years too!
