Christmas Day, Unedited

Santa (my parents) brought me a DSLR for Christmas/my birthday, and by the end of the day I finally got the hang of it. In the mean time, here's a collection of images and moments from the day...without any edits. So just keep that in mind as you check out the Romaniello Christmas day.

Christmas surprises- a J.Crew bracelet and a needle-pointed ornament made by Mom

Me, Whiskey as Santa, out of focus lights, needle-pointed Dal ornament

Giada looking for trouble, Figaro posing, Tiggre sleeping, Winston smiling

My new coin purse, sisters in front of the tree, Mom modeling her new coat, feet by the fire

Ali and I made homemade raviolis to go with Dad's homemade sauce and meatballs



We finished the evening watching Garfield Christmas, an annual tradition. It was one of those wonderful holidays that just reminds you how grateful you are. The only two missing were Louie and M, but otherwise, I would say that this was just one of those really perfect Christmases. And I couldn't put it better than this...

"Christmas....It's not the giving. It's not the getting. It's the loving." -Garfield
