Lots of Happy!!

Happy Birthday, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy Graduation, Happy New Year and Happy Valentine’s Day!  Whew!!  Lots of Happy!  Now it’s the dead of winter and I am so ready for Happy Spring!  We can’t even get out of the teens here in Pennsylvania!  It is COLD!!  I don’t mind the snow but when you can’t get warm that’s when I say enough is enough!  Even Ozzie can’t get warm!

Joe turned 50 in November and I had a party with family at our house.  I have to say I outdid myself and we had so much food and tons of fun!  I made pull pork, bar-b-que sausage, grilled chicken, macaroni and cheese, baked spaghetti, pepperoni dip, spinach dip, fresh fruit tray, and I made mini dessert cups of peanut butter pie, chocolate cream pie, key lime pie and pumpkin pie!

Thanksgiving is always one of my favorite holidays!  Eating and shopping!  What could be more fun than that!?  Joe even helped me bake mini apple and blueberry turnovers!

December 13, 2014 Grande Graduated from College with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice!!  What a happy day!

It was also Espresso’s 1st birthday party which we had to miss most of it because of the graduation which was so sad but we still made it in time to see him!

My Dad making Christmas Cookies!  Isn’t that adorable!

Christmas Eve was our usual going to Church then out to dinner tradition.  We went to The Melting Pot which is where Tall and Grande work.  It was so good!  Have you ever been to one?  It is a fondue restaurant.  

Then afterward we went over to Venti and Mocha’s for a Christmas Eve Party.  They got Espresso a ball pit and boy does he love it!

How cute is Espresso and Dudley?

The holidays were great!  It was so nice to have a normal one compared to last year when Joe wasn’t home.  I could see it on the kids faces that they too were so thankful for a “happy” holiday.

I came home to this the other day…..how sweet is that?
We got to spend some time with Espresso Monday.  He is getting so big and just so much fun!
