Stockings at Grandma and Grandpa's

I almost forgot to include our early Christmas. The whole Wilcox clan got together for Thanksgiving. It was a blast! Everyone had fun(in spite of all the throwing up that was going on daily) yuk!! We did stockings and our annual gift exchange. Maddie crocheted this blanket for Robin. I think she likes it! The kids were all happy to get silly bands. We took family pics, went to the zoo, the car show, hung out, played, talked, sang, ate. Let's not forget that one. WE ate lots!! So glad everyone could make it.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We spent Christmas day here at home. It was very sweet and peaceful. Santa brought some scooters and Maddie got roller blades from Grandma we went on a long walk and the kids rode their scooters and Maddie learned to skate. Grandma and Grandpa came to see us and we had a yummy dinner with them. Christmas Eve was spent at the Gagliardi's with cousins and Abuela. We feel so blessed to be around family, especially at Christmas. We are so grateful for our bounteous blessings and we are especially grateful to celebrate the birth of our Savior. We love you all and wish you the happiest 2011.

Big Night for Zach

In December Zachary earned his Webelos badge and his religious knot. It was a special night for Zachary. He gave me the mother's pin and received his religious knot award from our Bishop. Zachary has been working hard on his requirements and has made some pretty cool wood projects lately. One boy turned eleven and received his Arrow of Light and 4 other boys also received their Webelos badge. Zachary has outstanding leaders. They go above and beyond their duties. Sister Kristofferson is awesome. She emails us weekly and we are always informed of what's coming up. Their son has been home from college for a little while and comes to help weekly. They are truly dedicated and we are so grateful for them.

Big Fat Argentine Birthday

Andrea's mom put together this delicious cake for my sweetie, complete with a layer of dulce de leche, and, of course, some foliage as a garnish!

How old are you now, Andrea?
