Don't kill me

Ok, I know the last post I featured some lovely beach photos, however I can't wait for Christmas!  I was going through some of my personal family images from last year and it's such a happy time.  The boys, Tony and I picking out our Christmas tree, doing our giving jar tasks (I'll talk more about that later), spending time with family and friends....  My list could go on and on.  With as little snow as we did have last year, these images of us selecting our Christmas tree made me wish it was already here.  I never wish time to go faster.  I feel like I never have enough time.  These images will tie me over for now. 

I love the photo of Anthony looking down on Vinny.  They really really do love each other.  They look out for each other and are truly best friends.  I hope these little guys know how much I love them and that they are my dream come true.  I have never wanted anything except to be a mom.  Honestly.  All of my cousins would want to play or dress their barbies and I would sit with all of the women when we had parties because that's where the babies were.  All of the kids would call me an old lady, especially my cousin Sara, but I didn't care.  If I could just hold one of the babies for a few minutes and maybe even rock them to sleep, it was worth sitting and listening to their "boring" stories.  Now all of these years later, I have my own babies.  I know they don't look like babies, but they are.  They always will be.  Don't tell anyone, but Anthony still loves it when I lay with him at night until he's asleep and I love it too.  Guess all of the practice came in handy.
