Anthony’s baseball game…

we went to Anthony’s baseball game on saturday, all of the cousins were there, mom, rocky & i were there, of course mike & kera were there & it was awesome to get everyone together & laugh & watch Anthony… he is really good!!

grammy brought donuts!!

saying hi to anthony…

cousins…

i look at all of them & i can not believe the things they have all endured so far in their short lives. they are so beautiful, they all have very distinct personalities & feelings & likes & dislikes but they are all family & they remain tight & for that i am so very thankful. i am so thankful that they have each-other, especially thru the past few years of life changes that they have all gone thru. they have gone thru divorce, 4 of them have lost a parent & it is heart-breaking for us adults to watch them go thru such a thing. i think we all see that what we can do is keep them together, let each of them know that they have all of us, aunts, uncles & grandparents, all on their side. thru everything they laugh & they remain posotive about the future, their futures. i think we could all learn something from them about moving forward.

Anthony is hilarious, he is so incredibely handsome, he is sweet, he is witty & he looks (& sometimes acts)  just like his daddy. he has his dad’s gorgeous smile & sometimes when he moves you could swear it was tony, he has so many of the same mannerisms.

hangin’ in the bleachers…

so cute, sophia & anthony having a little conversation…

nice job mom, you got her to sleep…  that’s the grammy magic!!

uncle rocky & Anthony…

i look at this picture & i see how important it is that Anthony has Rocky. i think that in the future their relationship is going to be a very important connection to his dad for Anthony…

they are awesome!!

so cute…

& now we have emma & nova to add to all of our crazy kids… emma is so, so sweet & hilarious & i know that she has been an amazing sister to alex & alyssa & anthony. those 3 girls have become so close & i am so very thankful for that….

the boys crack me up!!!

family is awesome!!

family is funny, family is togetherness, family is ever-changing & it has to be full of forgiveness & acceptance.

our family has changed so much in the past year & it has been so incredibely hard but we are all doing the best that we can & this day with all of us together just felt good, it was so good to laugh with each-other & with the kids & i am glad that they see all of us adults laughing together & being together & accepting one-another. that must make them all feel a little safer & stable knowing that no matter what, family sticks together. i am so thankful that kera & the kids have mike in their life. at first it was hard because all i could see was it wasn’t tony but as time has gone by i now see it for what it is, he loves those kids like they were his own children & they love him,  you can see it in the way they look at him or how they turn to him when they need help. it is nothing but a good thing & i am thankful for that.

family is…

  1. Oh my gosh Gina I’m loving every thing you wrote and the pictures are wonderful. I love they way they capture the fun all the kids were having. Not being posed and just laughing. What a fun time. And the kids do teach us about living in the moment. How to handle change and be just be them. Feel safe and loved. So see you all next week at the next game. We are a diverse family, all of us.
