A Perfect Christmas in Pictures!

That really sums up my 2011.  JOY
My mom painted this ornament for Mateo, and it is my favorite one on our tree.  It was wonderful to celebrate Christmas this year as a family of three.
Five days of holiday fun started with a quick flight to Ohio.  It was Mateo's first flight and he traveled like a pro...sleeping almost the whole trip.
 Titi cried more than him....but he was pretty happy once we reached grandma's house.
Just like my bother Brrrian said, Christmas is a lot more fun with kids around.
The two new additions wore [unplanned] matching outfits to the annual Arnold Christmas Cocktail Party. 
It was the first time we met little Luke and the first time Barbie met Mateo.  How cute!?  These two little guys were joined by their older [also very cute] cousins in this shot.

Even though Mateo is 6 weeks older than Lukey-Luke and maybe an inch or so longer, Luke probably has a pound or two on him.  I mean, did you see those cheeks??
My SIL Barbie, also mother to Mr. Cheekers above, sewed these cute matching outfits for the cousins.
I think it goes without saying, that these are two very handsome boys.

Mateo opened his first present Christmas morning.  It was from Grandma and Grandpa...a baseball rattle which he was actually able to grab and swing around.
 As usual, my mom did the best entertaining and all the traditions were carried out and wonderful.  Being with my family never gets old, five days just wasn't enough!  I realize that this post is mostly about kids and not so much about gifts as in previous years...but what can I say....I have found something more compelling to write about! 
(Although my new UGG slippers are THE BOMB...thanks mi amor!!!)
Hope you had a Merry Christmas too!
