Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Theodore and family celebrated his first Christmas this year, and it was a blast!

Someone knows that Santa made a visit.

Bubbles! My new favorite!

I guess instead of a real car this one will have to do (for now)

Amanda got the Kathy Griffin book!

Matt enjoys his gifts over a tasty eggnog.

Fancy tights!

For the rest of the Christmas shots, including our visit to the Guarino's, check out the full album.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas

The holiday season continues, and we're so excited to celebrate our first Christmas with young Theo. We got a little tree, and thanks to Mom, we have hung our stockings in Brooklyn in anticipation of a visit from Santa.

Following the Plattsmier family tradition, we each opened one gift tonight, Christmas Eve. Enjoy some pics, and Happy Holidays, everyone out there!

Theodore got his first ornament, an engraved silver bell.

Matt received a can of tomatoes, which is a very long story he'd be glad to share with you.

Amanda received a bona fide certificate entitling her to Matt's infamous chili, which has been threatened but never materialized in the 4 years we have been together. Hopefully we won't have to end up in small claims court over it.

Hanukkah with Luvie & Grandpa

Theo spent some Hanukkah quality time at Luvie & Grandpa's this season.

Lookin' good!

Mind meld

Enjoy yourself 'Manda!

And for fun, Luvie gave Theo his first taste of applesauce! Let's see how he likes it:

Come Light the Menorah!

The first night of Hanukah

Check out my dance moves in my fresh new furry moccasins!

Theodore is 6 months old!

As a big 6 monther, Theo is starting to try out some solid foods for the first time. Luckily Uncle Dave was in from Texas and got in on the action. The reception of the foods has been lukewarm so far, but we're sure he'll find something to like sooner or later.

Trying out a bib
David and Goliath - only in this case, David IS Goliath
Finally some got in!

A whole lot to be thankful for...

We are so blessed this year. It wasn't difficult to come up with what to be thankful for at this year's Thanksgiving table. A happy, healthy, wonderful little baby has to be one of the greatest gifts you can ask for.

In addition to having Plattsmiers in from Texas, lots of delicious food, and family time with the Gonsky-Plattsmier crew (see pictures here), we had another eventful occasion to celebrate - Theodore started crawling! His Grammy figured out that bare knees helped him get the traction he needed to get on the move. Check it out!
