Christmas Fun

There are too many good pictures to post.
Perhaps it was because we had too much fun.
I mean it was Matilda's first Christmas...

AND, the Packers played. Does it get better than that?

Oh yeah...Matilda got her first candy in the form of a cane.
Let's just say she put all the practice of munchin' to good use as those red stripes faded very quickly.

We were very sad to not see Nick, but Becca and the boys made our holiday very merry and bright.

In fact, they brought Matilda her first swimsuit. Which she doesn't look cute at all in....not. at. all.

Nate was the master chef of Christmas dinner and made a stuffed beef tenderloin. I was impressed with his kitchen skills. It was pretty darn tasty.

There was some musical fun sent from the TOF herself in the form of a harmonica.

Nate spent lots of time playing with Finn and his new Christmas toys.....

...and Leo liked playing with all the toys that we brought from home for Matilda. Hey--they were new to him!

We tried to get Matilda interested in her new toys, but like all babies she was more interested in the paper, and her cousins.

We also experienced a first---Matilda fell asleep in Nate's arms in church. It was precious. 

Grandma got lots of good Tillie snuggles...

...and after a weekend filled with so much fun and activity, this little one was pretty tuckered out...

Can you tell she is saying: "Merry Christmas to All and to All a Goodnight?"

Merry Christmas Greta!
I was telling my mom (Dianne) how CUTE Matilda is and then was showing her the pictures on here. She is adorable! When we got to your Thanksgiving post and saw a picture of your mom holding her, both of our responses were "Nancy looks JUST like Eunice!" I hope you guys had a great Christmas! I miss the Ostrem Family gatherings and seeing you all.
I hope 2012 is as exciting for you both as 2011 has been!
