Olivia's first Christmas

Yippee it's Christmas... or it was 2 months ago ;)

We had fun picking out Olivia's stocking!

Rufus is really excited about Christmas... and life in general...

We stayed home for Christmas as well... 
we miss our family a ton and wish we were there 
but Olivia has not had her shots so we decided to celebrate in San Ramon!


Olivia's gifts from Santa!!

can't get enough of these feet

our attempted selfie of the family...

All the excitement is for us this year...


Katy's photographer in Houston gave me the idea of taking a fun Christmas tree shot every year...
I attempted to follow her tutorial and this is as good as I could get :).

Thanksgivikah with friends

Since Olivia is only one month old we stayed in San Ramon for Thanksgiving and had our friends the Bloomberg's over for dinner!!

Our first attempt at bryning a turkey...we will see how this turns out!

We have to let it soak in this mess for 24 hours...

Well thank you Pioneer woman as usual you are correct and it was delicious!!!

We celebrated Thanksgivikah because it is also Hanukkah which the Bloomberg's celebrate and it is tradition to fry things... so of course we MUST!!

It was successful and very yummy!  Here is the gang...
Charlie, Anne, Dave, John, Rufus, me and Olivia
