Happy New Year!

Look who's ready to ring in the New Year complete with a party hat and bells on (literally).

Merry Christmas from The Repuccis.

Bring it on, Santa!Enjoying a classic: the Farmer in the Dell.
Being arrested for continuously interrupting the big boys' game.
Peek-a-boo from inside Elmo's bunker.
Loading up the shopping cart.
Enjoying the poor man's Holiday Pops.
Shopping the party for more gifts.

The wonder of Christmas.

The most wonderful day of the year.

GFR @ 18 months

I just love this picture. Gabriella in pigtails, giving us a dissertation with a krinkled nose for emphasis, all while holding her father's clean laundry hostage. That's my little girl.

Let it snow!

For all intents and purposes, it's been snowing for 48 hours now.

With the exception of this one Sunday morning trip to Whole Foods to stock up on prepared comfort foods, we spent the weekend at home, in front of the fire, wrapping gifts, reading books, folding laundry, watching Sesame Street and dancing to old school holiday music.

Toddler-Proof Holiday Decorating

We decided to forego a Christmas tree this year, after visions of toddler antics danced in our heads. However, I think we pulled off a Gabriella-proof holiday decorating scheme that would make even Martha proud.

Winter's first snowfall.

Michael and I woke up this morning to Boston's first snowfall. So we brought Gabriella into our room, all piled into bed ....

... and watched the snow fall in Charlestown, MA.
