Merry Christmas from the Palizzis


The wrapping paper is finally gone, the boxes thrown away, and all toys assembled. The boys are finally coming down from there permanent sugar highs. We hope that you had an enjoyable Christmas season. We sure did. From oreo balls, to train tables, to millions and millions of legos.

On Wednesday, the boys had their holiday concert. It was ADORABLE! Seriously. Julian was such a ham, such a performer, and not shy at all! it was amazing. Gabe? Well he was his normal preschool self. He didn't do much, but he sure looked cute standing up at the front :) It's so weird that he's so bubbly, and full of personality at home, with friends, but at preschool, he doesn't ever talk. I think now it's a battle of wills. He has both my stubbornness, and Barry's, so I think he just might win. He's showing his stubbornness in his reluctance to potty learn!

Meet Buddy. He's our Elf on the Shelf. Super cute, and original name. Right? They love the movie Elf, so Buddy was the natural choice.

Gabe, before his concert. SO cute.

Julian singing the Reindeer Pokey. So cute!

Baby Owen listening to the concert by the preschool children.

And Gabe just standing there, not performing :)

Here's a video of the Reindeer Pokey <3

We took the boys to see Santa. Julian and Gabe talked big, and said they would sit on Santa's lap. In reality? Julian stood about 5 feet away, and yelled what he wanted to Santa, "Lego City Airplane" and Gabe stood closer, but whispered, "Brogan has, chugga table." His friend Brogan has a train table, and that's what Gabe wanted! Only one of my boys was brave enough to sit on Santa's lap.

We got their school pictures. Juilan's was really hard to choose from! He was cheesing in ALL of them!

Gabe's? They looked exactly the same in every picture, like 9 of them.

We got a nice little snowfall on Christmas Eve. It was so nice to have Barry home, so I could play with the boys outside!

Gabey playing in the snow!

Jules trying to catch a snowflake on his tongue!

Our mini snowman! The snow was gorgeous, but not very packable, or maybe it was just me?



We have a family tradition, each person gets jammies on Christmas Even night. I ordered the boys' way back in July, from baby Gap. They were having a great sale! And man I'm glad I did. How cute is this picture?


The boys seeing the stuff that Santa brought for the first time!

Enjoying his train table!


Sorry for the picture dump! I haven't blogged in a while! But that's one of my new years resolutions. Blog More. Take more pictures. Work out. And wear makeup again. Maybe eat a little better...we'll see about this one :)

Oh, your boys are growing up so quickly! Gabe sounds just like Griffin. I had to ask his teachers if he ever talked or played with friends at preschool because he was so quiet! And he purposely refused to potty train until the week or two before he turned three.

Thanks for sharing, blog more!
