Austin's First Christmas

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas this year! This was the best Christmas ever for our family with little Austin in tow and we were fortunate enough to celebrate three Christmas's this year! The first one was spent at home with my little family. Austin got a new monogramed suitcase for all his future travels and mom and dad gave each other practical gifts. I made some delicious Chicken Tikka Masala while we opened gifts around the Christmas tree, listened to Christmas carols and took several mental snapshots of how grateful we are!
Jonathan made some yummy White Russians as we opened gifts. 
A few days later we headed to Oregon to spend Christmas at my moms house. It was the first time Austin got to meet all his cousins and his uncle Tim. He was absolutely smitten with them all and the feeling was mutual on their part. He received nonstop affection, love and gifts. He was a absolute champ on the flight too, no fussing and no tears...I think he was born to travel :). On Christmas Eve we decorated cookies while uncle Jonathan made his famous egg nog and dined on our family tradition of tamales!!.....what do you expect? We're from Southern California, haha!!
Austin is smitten with Grandma and Grandma can't get enough of her baby!
Kayelynns first American Girl doll! She was so happy to have her very own baby doll! I can't wait to take her to the American Girl store here in Nova for some clothes shopping and cupcakes this summer!
Christmas morning smiles!!
After a wonderful week in Oregon we headed to Virginia for Christmas #3! We arrived on New Years Eve for a party on the farm and rang in the new year with Pork and Sauerkraut!
