What We See On Our Walks....

So I figured I'd share some of the things we see while Isabella and I are out on our walks.... Gorgeous passion fruit flowers... or at least I think that's what they are:)This is a huge villa in the middle of town... the dentist lives here.... this is just the back side... you really should see the front! It's gorgeous... even if it does need some work.Nectarine trees... or peaches.... anyways, these trees are full of fruit right now. In spring it's all covered in pink flowers! City Hall... this is where we were married.... It's especially pretty at night around Christmas... some of you saw our Christmas card 2 years ago.Isn't this just the ideal Italian place? Ok so this isn't the house... it's the garage or storage house but it's so cute with all the brick work and flowers.And of course, what's an Italian summer walk without seeing grapes growing on the vine! I see these everywhere. Even when people have an itty bitty yard, they still find room for these.

It's a Girl!

And a BIG one at that! My BFF Dori just had a big bouncing baby girl... no official word on the name yet but she was 9 lbs 10 oz and 22 inches long!!! Practically as big as Isabella!!!

Finally got a great shot...

of these.... Aren't these magnolias magnificent? They are so huge! They also seem to only stay pretty for about a day here. Of course most of them are way to high for me to get a great shot but I finally found one growing low enough to get this photo. Pretty hey?

Check this out....

I found this on another blog and thought it was interesting... play along and check out your colour profile. Here's mine:

inspired by the oranges in our world...the breathtaking beauty of an orange sunset, the contrasting moods of the Red Centre, Autumn leaves rustling under your feet, the exotic aroma of saffron, nutmeg and cinnamon, that giant Mexican terracotta pot you had to leave behind...

Finally finished...
Well I FINALLY got this page done! I started it like 2 months ago... I saw this idea on a scrapping sight and thought it was a perfect page to scrap. It's true, when really pregnant, you don't get to see your feet so much and when you want to paint your nails or even put on socks... let me tell you... it's quite a feat! Giovanni offered many a times to put my socks on for me but I insisted I do it myself as I needed to if he wasn't home to do it for me. I did enjoy the foot rubs hubby gave me the last few weeks as my ankles and feet were swollen... I almost asked him to help touch up my toe nail polish one time too!

A Day In Cremona...

So the day Isabella got her shots, we spent the afternoon in Cremona. I wanted to scrap these picts so she would have some pictures of Italy in her book. I love this picture we got of her sleeping... she slept most of that day... the doctor said she probably would due to the shots. The other pict is of G and Isabella in her stroller... I wanted to try to get a picture of the whole park with the belltower in the back but the trees were so big you can't see much but it gives you and idea of how old this place is.

Another One of My Sweety!

Thanks to Linda and Gary, Isabella has a buddy to snuggle with at nap time.

New family photos!
I've been trying to organize time to do family photos of us with Isabella. It seems G is always working or else the days he has had off I had a stupid eye sty!!! GRRR! (that's 5 so far!) So finally I knew G was going to be home this morning so last night I said I wanted to take picts this morning.... even if I only get to snap a few. Plus, Isabella is usually happier in the mornings so better chance she'd co-operate a bit better (rather than dozing off on me or crying cuz her belly is starting to get hungry.) Well, I did only shoot a few, but they were gooders! Here's a few I HAD TO scrap today.
