Christmas Eve

We celebrated Christmas at our house this year with Rob's family. We enjoyed a delicious Christmas Eve dinner (thank you Nancy!!) and attended the early service at church with Maggie. She seemed to enjoy it and we sat right behind her friend Molly who was happy to share toys during Mass. Ready for Christmas Eve Dinner

I love Nana!


Exciting events in December included a birthday dinner with Andrew and Danielle, birthday weekend in Philly with Jen, Dave, Julie and Erin and Dave. We had great seats (apart from being surrounded by Navy fans) at the Army Navy game and had a super yummy dinner at Tequilas in Philadelphia. Maggie had a sleepover with Ellie and Charlie hung out with Aunt Erin. It was a great weekend!! We also had Rob's Company Christmas party which was great fun! The highlight was Santa's arrival in the Rescue Truck. My wonderful friends took me out for lunch at Restaurant Eve and we did a cookie exchange as well. I am sure I forgot something this month-it totally flew by!!

Good News!

Charlie decided to give me an early Christmas present this year. Guess what it is? No more dairy allergy!!! YAY!!! I am so excited to actually enjoy the food this Holiday season. He has also decided to skip baby food all together. He had his first taste of real food on Thanksgiving and has not turned around since. We pulled out the old baby food mill and have been giving the boy everything we eat these days. Mac and cheese, stromboli, roasted chicken, he loves it! Maggie is thrilled to see him progressing and cheers him on at meal times "you are finally eating baby-yay-good job charlie". So cute! December is upon us again and the calendar is packed already. We have, count them, 4 parties this week to keep us busy! We are also going with friends to check out the Grinch who Stole Christmas ICE extravaganza at the National Harbor. Last but certainly not least we are celebrating my birthday this year with lots of fun stuff!! Check back next week to see pictures. Happy St Nicholas Day!!

He looks so much like Rob!
