The First Christmas - Finally (GEEZ!)

Ok, so it's almost February and I'm finally posting picts from our first Christmas together.  Normally, I would probably let it go and move along but it was such a momentous occasion that I just had to post some picts to share with our family.  We had a little tree in our little place..and lots of presents (mostly for Xavi).  He didn't wake us up especially early excited to see what Santa left him...I guess we have a few years for that.  But we woke up excited because we had received the best gift possible...this little life, the new light in our lives. 
Our son. 
On Christmas Eve, we went for a walk on the beach and thought we could have appetizers at the restaurant right there...well, we had apps but took the rest "to go".  We weren't quite ready to dine in public with our squawking infant. We watched movies and opened one present.  On Christmas, we opened the rest and watched more movies, walked on the beach again. 

The shirt says it idea was to take pictures of Xavi in all his new outfits.  But changing clothes makes him so mad that I gave up after one set.  Wouldn't we all rather be naked?

Needless to say, we felt very blessed by the thoughtfulness of our family and friends on our first Christmas together.  Thank you for the gifts and love from all over the country. 

We were remembering that it was a year ago that we said our vows on a remote beach in the Galapagos.  It was a set to be the most special Christmas, one that would be very hard to beat, yet just one year later, one little boy did that easily.  We hope there will be many, many more to come.  I love you Mario. 
Merry Christmas and Happy Anniversary.
