San Gennaro Feast Italian Festival May 10-14, 2017 North Las Vegas

My husband, granddaughter and I had a fabulous time at the San Gennaro Feast Italian Festival last year! The funnel cakes and Italian sausage sandwich were wicked good!

Our granddaughter experienced her first pony ride that day! The three of us even went on the ferris wheel! It was so much fun!

So it won't surprise you when I tell you that we are excited that the festival is returning!

Happy First Birthday, Gaia!

It's been a pleasure to watch our granddaughter grow up over the year! She is officially a toddler now. Time for friends, play groups, and solid foods. "Happy Birthday, Gaia"!

Community Garden ~ Sunday

My husband and I decided to take a walk to the neighborhood farmers market this weekend. While we were there, we thought it would be a good idea to check out our garden lot, in the community garden.

This winter has been unusually cold and windy. We actually thought we wouldn't see any plants surviving but we did!

What's For Dinner: Homemade Beef Stew

My daughter-in-law requested my homemade beef stew. Which I was happy to oblige.

After decades of making beef stew with a recipe, this is one is "make up as I go". I have no written recipe, portions or ingredients. I use what is available in the house.

My family tells me they love it. I'm glad that they do.

Loving These Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads!

Loving these Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads sample from my Birchbox. Easy to apply. Just leave on for 20 minutes.

The results are wonderful! I'm definitely going to be placing an order for these eye pads!

Christmas Day at Our House

This year we scaled back on the Christmas gifts for the adults. Christmas, at our house, was all about the kids! I'm so glad we decided to do a little tree this year. Everyone really liked the decorations.

No early wakeups. The kids opened their gifts around 11 am. It gave me plenty of time to make breakfast and enjoy a cup of coffee.

The girls received new pajamas. A traditional Christmas gift when I was growing up.

Gaia wore her new thermal pajamas from Old Navy. Everyone thought she looked adorable in them.

Another wonderful Christmas day in the Berry-Morin house.
