Super excited BOYS!! Santa came! We heard them RUN up the stairs to share the news with Auntie Dani & Neal. 

We made them wait until Pepere & Penny came in from the motorhome…then we went to town. Not many pictures of the actual opening…it was a bit crazy! 

Santa brought stocking filled with goodies! The boys got rollerblades and Grace got a baby doll jogging stroller! Everyone was SO excited! 

The boys got a trip to Sacramento to visit Grandma D, Eric & Auntie Nancy for a week! (AJ reads it above) 

Time to get ready for the family dinner and festivities. Joe made a prime rib on the grill. And started hot cider in the crockpot. Mom LaGreca decorated the tables for dinner. 

Flint siblings 💗💗💙

I forgot to post earlier – I got an Apple Watch for Christmas! It’s been fun trying to figure out how it works 

Time for family gifts and the $10 gift exchange game. 

We had a great day. It was really busy and full of food, drinks, family and fun. So glad we get to host at our house. The 2nd year was even better then the first. We knew what to expect and had everything organized pretty well. 

Merry Christmas 2016! We hope your home was filled with love and joy 🙏🏻❤️! 


Christmas 2016 (Eve)

Posted in Anthony, Family, Friends, Grace, Holidays, Nicholas at 12:30 am by elagreca

This was our 2nd Christmas out on The Ranch. It was just as magical as the 1st – probably a bit more because I knew what to expect. 

Here are all the pictures from the last few days before Christmas – the boys had school until Thursday the 22nd. I worked on Friday from Starbucks and then the break began 😊 Pepere and Penny arrived on Friday afternoon, in their RV. 

Christmas Eve…fun (fighting) at home and then dinner at Auntie Meg & Uncle Steve’s house. Auntie Dani & Neal arrived in the afternoon. 

Doesn’t everyone shoot on Christmas Eve? 

We headed over to Meg & Steve’s for dinner. Pasta (Italian tradition) and Leftse (Norwegian tradition) & Shrimp. Cannoli for dessert. 

We didn’t make it to church which I wa stunned about. But you can only do so much with 9 people and 3 of them being kids.  We went home for Christmas Jammies, stories, and letters/cookies for Santa. 

Time for the kiddos to go to bed and wait for Santa to come! 

Moose mugs & spiked eggnog for the adults. 

Christmas Vacation! 

It’s always so fun to see everything after Santa’s arrival. Knowing there would be at least 2 little boys waking up EARLY – I tried to go to bed at a reasonable time. I was up rocking Grace around 2 am 😕 Poor girl couldn’t breathe through her nose. 6am came pretty quick (the boys are NEVER up that early! Eek! Not sure how people do it everyday) A few others stayed up to play dominoes…

Christmas Day….continued in the next post….


The Reason for the Season

Posted in Anthony, Family, Grace, Holidays, Nicholas at 10:05 pm by elagreca

Well, I was doing so good with picture updates – but the rest of December got SO busy! So many pictures to share. 

The last Wednesday night of Advent was special. The kids were in a Live Nativity story at church. The boys were 2/3 Wise Men and Grace was supposed to be a sheep (but never made it up on the stage….she was a wondering sheep). 

I had the kids by myself that night, because Joe was doing wedding food tasting with Dani & Neal. Let’s just say….it’s confirmed again. Three kids is A LOT!

Grace was ALL about the Baby Jesus. She wanted him all to herself. At one point, I was up on the stage (during dessert / coffee time) saying “Gracee, you need to share Baby Jesus with everyone!” 

It was nice to spend a whole evening talking about the real reason for the season 🙏🏻❤️
