All the wealth in the world cannot be compared with the happiness of living together happily united. 
-Blessed Margaret d’Youville 











We had two cords of wood delivered today to supplement the wood we have already from various sources.  Everyone here jumped in to help with the stacking (except me actually....I had to go feed Lucy and clean up dinner).  It does a momma's heart good when her children, as young as they are, still pitch in to help on these big jobs.  Ben is a master wood stacker!

A Typical Evening At The Salvucci House..



gotta get that girl a hairnet!



Doesn't every family gather round the table to make homemade sausage???

Pork shoulders have been on sale....so we now have quite a few pounds of homemade sausage in our freezer. 

And yes that is pureed something smeared across the babies head.  I promise you she was properly bathed before getting her jammies on and going to bed.

Lederhosen

Claudio came home from his parent's house several weeks ago with some of his old stuff that was still in their closets. One of the things in his bag were these two lederhosen! I knew I had seen a picture of Claudio and his brother wearing them.

My kids loved these outfits so much that they have actually put the on for fun a few times since I took these pictures. They are pretty cute!




she of course had to make a silly pose

yes, that is Ben's underweear poking out from the bottom of the shorts.  70s shorts are shorter than today's underwear.

Here is the only picture I could find of little Claudio wearing the same outfit!
