Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone reading our blog. We spent the holiday with our family and friends up at Shanti and Aimee's house. We spent Christmas Eve and then enjoyed the present tornado in the morning. Tiffany & Tommy were there for dinner with "little" Sam and Tommy's mom joined us as well. Below are some highlights of the evening/morning below:

Andrea with Serena, Lily & Shilah



Emory leaping from chair to couch...doesn't seem to matter where he is these days, always jumping!

Serena is also great at jumping

Tommy & Sam...for those of you who don't know, Sam is about 3 weeks older than Lily is

Sam (with Patriots passifer) surronded by Shilah, Tiffany, Andrea, Lily and you can barely make out Serena in the background

and the kids seem ready for hour plus later they were still up and had to be separated so they could get some sleep

and Shanti & Aimee...

...and Gabe & Andrea could relax a little.

in front of the fire...thank you to all contributed to making our 2009 Christmas happy, healthy(except for the doughnuts) and enjoyable and I missed all my family very much this year and with you a happy Holidays!

Pictures from this week

We got a new camera this week and I have been taking lots of pictures. I love it and have been having lots of fun with it. Above are some pictures from this past week, last one is from a picture on our wall with the Macro lense, hopefully I will be able to gets some pretty cool shots with this lense.

Zoo Lights

Last night we went to Zoo Lights at the Denver Zoo. It was a nice, warmish evening and it was quite crowded, but the kids seemed to have a good time. We even got to meet up with one of my friends from work for a little while:

Bean Bag Chair

We got a large bean bag chair from one of Andrea's co-workers and it was an instant hit with both kids and parents alike. It is so comfortable, soft and big!

Andrea curled up with Emory & Lily

Mommy & Lily being very cute!

Playing nicely together

Baby Lily just being super cute

Daddy playing with his little man and sweet girl

Emory learned very quickly that he could launch himself from our chair onto the bag and have lots of fun doing so!

Even when he lands on his face it does not hurt!

might as well do it again, and again, and again...
