This year was the first Christmas Jacob and I spent with just us. It was fun being with our little girl to celebrate.
Matea won best dressed in the NICU and everyone was ohhing and ahhing at her. I love the above picture, she looks like a dancing little elf :) Since we weren't with extended family Christmas eve dinner was up to me. I think it turned out pretty good. We had ham, cheesy potatoes, rolls, and an artichoke with butter dipping sauce.

Funny story about the ham. I had no idea what the going rate is for one and since I was buying it the night before Christmas eve i got the first one I saw at $5 a lbs. Holy cow was it expensive, but i figured that's what they'd all be like. Nope. I later heard Safeway had a ton for a dollar a pound. Next year I'll know better lol
our little tree and gifts
Christmas morning we woke up, opened presents then headed to the NICU with gifts for Matea. She had on a pretty Christmas dress to celebrate the day.

A present from daddy. it won't fit for a while but who cares

A San Francisco book from Grandma and Grandpa.

After Christmas Jacob's family flew into town to hangout.
We flew kites, played a ton of games, checked out union square and so much more. It was great having them around and fun for Matea to meet her Nanny and Grandad, and aunts and uncles.

It was a great way to end the year with family.
