~ Merry Christmas ~

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!
Here is Mercy on Christmas morning celebrating Jesus' birthday for the very 1st time. :)

The kiddos enjoying a special treat of organic m&m's from the bottom of their stockings...on sister's new dishes of course!

New pink and cami slippers too :)

Our little stocking head munchkins ;)

So, I tried to get a picture of the children in front of the Christmas tree. Ha! That was a joke. I wish there was a way to cut and paste the good heads with smiles into one picture!

"Am I really outnumbered 2 to 1?"

Charlotte enjoying Christmas morning...snzzzzzz

My grandmother got to hold Mercy for awhile after Christmas dinner at my parents house

Gigi and Mercy

I'm wondering if she is already teething because she is chewing on her fingers an awful lot

After a diaper change she got to talk to Aunt Dee's two doggies, Rikki and Jazzy. Rikki jumped up and gave her a kiss right on the nose!

With her Nama...they match...aren't they cute?

A big sweet girl at 11½ weeks old....already!

Okay, so I guess I got carried away with the pictures this time. :)
May God bless each of your families as we enter the coming new year!

Christmas Eve

My family came over Christmas Eve before they went to look at Christmas lights. My parents brought their gifts for us and the children. Caleb's highlight gift was a crossbow.

Which everyone enjoyed trying out...

Including the big guys too :)

It shoots these foam darts with suction cups on the end,

that is where they were supposed to end up, right?
Charis got a new baby doll with all the accessories, she loves being a mommy!

It is strange this metamorphosis that takes place when a parent becomes a grandparent, the children are just so thrilled but, Lordwilling, there soon may be many cousins of which Nama & Papa's generosity will be distributed. he he ;)

Family Pictures

We haven't fallen off the face of the earth...we're still here. :) I was late getting our pictures taken this year so they won't be back until Friday. YIKES!!! But then I will stuff Christmas cards and get them on their way. They may or may not reach you before Christmas but MERRY CHRISTMAS just the same!

So here is a sneak preview of what will be arriving in your mailbox shortly:

precious baby girl

something sure was funny :)

I'm cute.

Back Blogging??? ;)

I don't know if that is proper english or not but during these months of contemplating a blog quite a few things have happened and such so I thought I would post some of them as well...

Some of you know that back in June a furry, four-legged member joined our family. Her name is Charlotte and she is an English Mastiff.

Here is Caleb with Charlotte when she was 7½ weeks old.

They were VERY excited.

She was also cute...

and curious...

Sitting with her daddy, right after we got her.

Now here she is at 7½ months

To give you a little comparison...

Our little puppy :)

She was 8lbs. when we got her and now she weighs 70+lbs
An average female weighs at least 120lbs!

We'll keep you posted... ;)

Taking the plunge....

So, after the encourage-ment and promptings of many friends I am going to try this out. :) I probably won't be too consistent in my postings for now, which will make me one of those "people" who I can't believe haven't posted in ages! Such a hypocrite am I. ;) Now I've got to figure out how to put a picture on here...shows you how computer illiterate I am, I'm surprised I've made it this far!
Okay, so I've got a pic and as you probably have guessed the "escapades" of the Terrizzi family normally include 3 little munchkins and are most often carried out and initiated by munchkin #1 who can be seen on the far left (anyone have any pity for me yet? :P ).
So, thus ends my first post and hopefully it'll work!
