Hosting Christmas at our tiny apartment this year was so much fun! Seven of the Carini clan came and enjoyed the holiday celebrations at our place, making a total of 11 bodies in our 600 sq ft apartment. (They did sleep at a hotel and I'm only estimating that's how big it is.) I've never hosted Christmas and the only time we've had that many people in our apartment was with a casual pizza party...not a holiday meal. It was a big deal for me, I was a little nervous, but it all turned out great. After they left our small apartment felt surprisingly huge.
Since we have never had a tree before we needed some ornaments. Isabella LOVED making some salt dough ornaments. We had a lot of fun. I got the recipe and inspiration from here.
And on Christmas day we took some cute photos of the kids in front of the tree.
Oliver has started eating solid food recently. I was so hesitant to start because with Isabella it was more a battle than it was worth. But Oliver is doing well...as long as it is sweet, but who can blame him? And Isabella is an excellent helper!

"What are you doing Isabella?"
"I'm not doing something."
That was enough reason to check on her. I found a chunk of her hair
missing, luckily, only to the chin. She said she wanted short hair,
like me. I debated taking her for an expensive NYC kids cut ($30, no
joke!), but instead turned on a movie and grabbed our sharpest
shears. It's horribly crooked, but surprisingly stylish. And
extremely adorable, if I do say so myself.
She said she wants it shorter. I said "It might look funny."
"I want it funny." she replied matter-of-factly.
"Ummm. Let's wait and talk to daddy."
