Merry Christmas

I've missed you all and my sweet little blog. Sorry for the lack of attention lately, just dealing with the busy holiday season as usual. The Sciandris are looking forward to a busy and family-filled weekend this Christmas and are especially excited for Luke's first Christmas. He has already crawled under the tree to try and unwrap the presents (well really it's just banging on the packages but the paper isn't very thick)!


Thank you all for reading this blog and allowing me to share my experiences over the past few years. I hope you all have a very happy, safe, blessed, and fun holiday and I look forward to sharing another year with you. Thank you for your continued support!

Luke - 6 Months

Can you believe it?! Our little baby is six months old tomorrow, the 16th. Time has gone by so fast and I hear from a lot of other parents to cherish these times because they are so short. No kidding! We have enjoyed every ounce of our little bundle of smiles, almost giggles, hugs, drool drops, and more. Now that we have reached the half year mark I am going to do the rest of the year by month.

Apple Hill

We spent a lovely day at Apple Hill last weekend with our good friends Alli & Levi. I left the Apple Farm planning up to Alli and we hit up the spots best know for apple donuts, apple pies, and beer! We had a great time and Luke was a little trooper all bundled up to stay warm.

I loved the wood burning stove not to mention the heat it generated!

Memorable Moments


Dear Luke,
                These are just 2 pictures of some of our most favorite moments so far in your nearly 6 months of life. We cherish each and every hug, snuggle, and relaxing nap with you. These sleeping snuggle moments moved quickly to the top of my list of favorite times with you from the very beginning. When you were a newborn I would feed you 2 times a night and after the last feeding around 5:00 a.m. I would bring you into the bed and let you sleep the next hour or so on my chest. I will always cherish the cozy feeling of these times. You sleep in your big boy room now and we wake you up when we are ready to get you up for the day, but we still get some sleeping snuggles in on the weekends. I wonder how long you will be so comfortable sleeping in our arms? I hope we have a few more years =)

Love, Mom & Dad

Bright and Cheerful Nursery

I finally got around to taking some photos of Luke's nursery. We originally had that room painted blue and were going to keep it blue regardless of if we had a girl or a boy. I wanted his room to be bright, cheerful, and fun. Gino had a lot of input and in the end it turned out just right!

Lots of books to read in a bookshelf from Ikea.
I made the curtains from Ikea fabric. Fast, easy, and no-sew required.

I made this mobile from scrapbook paper.
There are endless color and pattern combinations for any nursery.

Changing station and more personalized designs.
I used fabric left over from the curtains to cover the small drawer to the side of the dresser.

These Sesame Street Car toys were Gino's when he was a little boy.

My talented sister knit this puff mama foot stool that matches with the room colors perfectly.
She followed this tutorial

Our nursery wasn't complete without Giants gear.

Luke already has a lot of stuffed animals and the teddy bear is actually Gino's childhood teddy bear, so sweet.

We originally were going to get Gino's Mom's rocking chair but it was too big for the room so we went with a non-traditional style chair instead from Target (I don't think they have it anymore).

The Cabbage Patch is an original from the 1980's that my Grandma saved.
I just love the old school toys.
