Easter gifts from Italy

My parents are in town! Mum and dad are in London, hurray! Can you feel the excitement?! Rob and I have been counting the days for a few weeks and finally Tuesday night my parents arrived to London and are going to be with us for two fat weeks! We are all so happy and of course they themselves couldn't wait to be here to play with their beloved grand-daughter. They landed very late at night on Tuesday and got to our flat around 1.30 am. Emilia was of course sleeping so they quietly sneaked into the bed in her room and fell asleep straight away. We were all wondering what reaction Emilia would have had in the morning when she would see them sleeping next to her but no one could expect what happened: apparently, she woke up around 7.00, stood up, checked what was going on in the bed, and without saying a word went down again in her crib and slept until 8.40! Rob and I had forgotten how peaceful it is to have breakfast without Emilia around! :) 

Anyway, once up, she had her breakfast and then we moved to her little craft area in the living room where my parents literally showered her with gifts. They brought so many things that it took quite some time for Emilia to open everything. You can get a glimpse of the joy in the video below. I only filmed the first five minutes, therefore the first half of the gifts! So, thank you ever so much to all of you who sent gifts to Emilia, you are special and we love you very much. Thank you to my mum's colleagues, each one of you, you are so sweet, nonna Nilde, Ilaria, Cristian and baby Aso, zia Patty, Ilenia, Alessandro, Simone and especially Giulia (Emilia thought your drawing was a masterpiece!), zio Leonardo and zia Maria for the yummy Limoncello biscuits from Ischia (these are for us, not Emilia!) and if I am forgetting someone, thank you-thank you-thank you! We love you all.
