Ellie’s First Christmas

The end of December 2017 brought us Ellie’s first Christmas, and we were excited to spend this milestone holiday at home with our friends and family.
Step One. Get a tree.
Step Two. Decorate the tree.
Step Three. Hang the stockings on the mantle and begin the picture-taking spree.
Step Four. Put baby under tree like the amazing gift that she is and take more pictures. 
Step Five. Take some time out of the busy holiday season to read and relax.
Step Six. Be sure to make time for friends, like the always adorable Avery.
Step Seven. Enjoy a Christmas Eve dinner prepared by someone else. In our case, Café Rio.
Step Eight. Bake delicious goodies “for Santa” that require plenty of taste-testing–
on his behalf, of course.
Step Nine. Don’t forget the family photos!
Step Ten. Christmas morning is here! Open the presents!
Step Eleven. Invite your people over to celebrate with you. Abuela is so happy to be with her babies.
Just after Christmas, Ellie got to meet her Titi Ty and Titi Tovah who live it up in California with their awesome kiddos, Ari and Raya. We can’t wait to head out west for a longer visit!
Ellie wishing she had shades as cool as Titi Ty’s.
Raya was so excited to help feed the baby. Look at those curls!!
And then she was officially three months old.
Three months. Like a boss.
