With Tim working at Amazon as a customer service tech support, we had to head home so he could work his shift on Christmas Eve. While we were sad to leave my parents house after a ridiculously short visit, it did give us an opportunity to visit (and show off Isaac) with Tim's aunt who stopped by before her flight out of Portland.
Christmas morning arrived and we enjoyed our customary Hungarian coffee cake for breakfast before we read the Christmas story and exchanged presents.
Isaac's first Christmas!
We had a Christmas catastrophe when Isaac's diaper leaked all over his favorite quilt that he has slept with ever since the day he was born. Thankfully, the swaddle blanket that his Great Grandma Luse sent him kept him content while the quilt was washed.
Elijah loves his little baby brother and occasionally wants to hold and snuggle him.
Christmas night, the Hawaii and the California cousins arrived at the grandparents house, so we drove over the next morning to reunite with our cousin friends.
The Whittaker Newmas (Christmas around New Years Day) was celebrated.
Cousins were held.
Elijah actually wanted his picture taken...
...and to have a chance to try out his photography skills.
(I think a cheap digital camera is going to be on his wish list soon)
Isaac turned 1 month old...
...and stole his auntie's heart...
... and the rest of the family's hearts too.
