Holiday video :)

Daddy made this holiday video for Christian so I thought I'd share :)

1st Christmas Eve and Christmas

In my family Christmas eve has always been spent with my dad's side of the family and Christmas morning with my moms - this year was no different. We spend the eve at my Aunt Rhonda and Uncle Ray's house with my grandparents having dinner and opening presents. Christian was passed from person to person and even took a little snooze. He was of course spoiled by all and received many wonderful presents.






Christmas morning was spent at home - my mom made her usual Christmas morning brunch of biscuits, eggs and cheese sauce with bacon, sausage and fruit - yummy. William and Katie came over with the girls and Grandma Paula and Uncle Stanley joined us as well. Here is Christian with his loot from Santa

and some other pics from the morning - reading his new book with Grandma

in front of the tree he "helped" pick out

and his stocking made by Grandma with love :)

All in all I'd say his first holiday season was a success - of course more exciting for mommy than baby. We are looking forward to next Christmas when he will have a better idea what is going on :)

Pre-Christmas events

In the weeks leading up to Christmas Christian had a few holiday related photo shoots, went to pick out a tree with mommy and grandpa (actually slept through picking out a tree :P) and of course had a visit with Santa Claus - here are some pictures from the festivities . . .









Waiting in line to see Santa



With the big guy himself

Christian also had his first taste of cereal which he had mixed feelings about :P


and his first taste of baby food which he enjoyed


These two events were actually after the week after Christmas but I don't have enough pics to warrent a seperate post - a visit to the San Juan Capistrano train station with mommy and daddy while mommy was on vacation from work



and his first time in his crib :)



not sleeping, just hanging out in there to get used to it in preperation for the transition from his rock and play sleeper
