The finished product
This year my tree top is a butterfly to symbolize freedom, the greatest gift of all.
My growing Christmas Village tradition. This year I added the nutcracker & the sugar plum fairy under the tree.
Cousins & Nieces, aren't they cute??

Wednesday Dec. 2nd was my mother-in-law's birthday, but since it was in the middle of the week, not all of the family was available to celebrate on the actual day. For her birthday (on wed.) Enrico & I invited her over for dinner to our house, where I for a change, cooked for her! We had a nice evening together.
On Sunday, we all went to restaurant on a farm and ate lunch there. The food was sooo good! Everything was genuine and the pasta was hand-made. I didn't get pictures of the food because I was too busy eating! We had a great afternoon that soon turned into evening at my sister-in-law's house where Carlotta insisted in decorating the Christmas tree all together... so x-mas tree it was!
Marinella & the cake
Carlotta REALLY wanted to use my Canon Rebel... so of course I let her and these are the pictures she took! Not bad uh??
Carlotta & her Mom Cristiana
Simona, Carlotta & Cristiana
This little munchkin (who will be two on the 16th) put on quite a show for us! He was HILARIOUS!
This (freaky) Santa Statue was at the entrance of the restaurant and Carlotta wanted a picture with it... and I would of though she'd have found it creepy. Kids! Go figure!

Well if you are, (I'm not) I'd like to suggest going to the Museum of the City Of New York to see an AWESOME exhibition:
A newsworthy exhibition of clothes and jewelry worn by New York's most tantalizing and trailblazing women.

This last beautiful Sunday, we went for a stroll to Masua, and old mining town, to see some friends and have a BBQ lunch!
This is what they see from their home...
Good friends & good times! (Julia with P-Chan the cat)
BBQ Masters! Diego & Matt.
Some of the grub!
Just thought it was beautiful!
Only 12 people live in this tiny old and abandoned mining town and there are few buildings to go with it!
What was once the local snack bar.
I was able to put some of my (very little) photography skills to work...
