Last Saturday, we were on base for a birthday party. Before going home, we had to stop by the store and Santa was there! We hadn’t decided if we are going to “do Santa”, but I guess we are now?

While… Continue reading Friday’s pieces 12/14
It’s the most… won-der-ful tiiiiimme of the year! This month will be our sixth Christmas in Italy. I’m counting last year in that, even though we went home for Christmas and were gone half the month. I mean, we were here for the beginning of December and New Year’s. And while I love almost all… Continue reading Christmas in Naples and Southern Italy
