Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

How I wonder how my 2 year old can already 
sing your song all by herself. As you can see, she 
is a little camera shy, but she definitely knows the 
tune! She continues to amaze us everyday! 


Last night, Giulietta counted all the way to 10 all by herself. 
Unfortunately, we couldn't get her counting perfectly on video,
but this is close enough, and wonderful as well!

Our Family

sitting on the the banks of the Mississippi in New Orleans! 

Beads, Beignets, & Bourbon Street

Hello New Orleans!! 
Our little day trip to New Orleans brought us beads, beignets, 
and bourbon street. It was definitely a cultural experience for all 
of us--pictures of naked women posted on walls, the stench of
the streets, the random men approaching Daddy, and the rich
food of the deep South! 

Good Ole' Miss

In an attempt to beat the heat, we spent a few afternoons 
laying down by the Mississippi! Giulietta loved running
around collecting leaves & sticks.

Elvis's House

Part of our summer vacation was spent in Memphis, TN. For 
most, this would seem like a unusual place to visit, but 
for Giulietta's Mommy this was a dream! 

As a long time Elvis fan, I have always wanted to return to
Memphis, I was last there when I was 5, to visit Elvis and see
where he lived. So, we finally went! And, it was amazing! 

The gates that Mommy has waited 21 years to stand in front 
of! Now, Mommy has her little Presley with her! :)

Graceland, Home of Elvis Aaron Presley

Jungle Room

The poster for my favorite Elvis song! 

I don't think G enjoyed visiting Elvis's house as much
as Mommy and Daddy! 

Tickets for Elvis's Comeback tour with our wedding
date on them.

Elvis Presley Blvd.

Standing in the same places that Elvis once did definitely makes 
one feel close to him, but sad that he is only there in spirit. 

"Taking Care of Business" 

Mickey's House

In August, we spent 4 magical days at the Walt Disney World resort. 
Giulietta was very excited to go see Mickey's Florida House, and the 
other 3 parks. We also met Nana, Fafa, and Uncle Kaka at the 
happiest place on earth! 

G & Daddy waiting for our first bus ride into the parks. 
BTW...the bus rides were probably G's favorite park of
the entire trip! 

A little visit with Aunt Cathy!

Goofy and our girl!

3d glasses! :)

She can drive, only at Disney World! 

It was hot, hot, hot!!!

Just hanging around!!

All in all, the trip was wonderful! Giulietta enjoyed
 each park in a special way.  We are now looking
into going on a Disney Cruise next summer!

More Painting!!

Painting is an activity that is never dull or boring for my little dear. I let
her use brushes, foam sponges, and her fingers. And, she works with the
utmost concentration in order to make the perfect designs on her frames!
