The magazines I picked out for them (we are going on a trip tomorrow so I got it for them to take on the plane) reflect perfectly the differences in their personalities. The History magazine is for Zach, my news watching teen who loves history and wants to be a politician. Mad magazine for my social, could care less about school pre teen Joey. The Us magazine, Olympics edition is for Vinny, who has been GLUED to the Olympics every night, fascinated by all the athletes (he even watched the entire opening ceremony, with the parade of athletes, long after we had all fallen asleep in front of it). And for Christopher, the precocious baby of the family, Simpsons and SpongeBob comic books.
They also got their traditional heart shaped pancakes, heart shaped pizza
and by request from Christopher, a heart shaped brownie cake!
Happy Valentine's Day Contini boys! I love each and every thing about each one of you.
