Photo Essay: Rafaella's 1st Christmas

After a long break and a non functioning internet, I finally am posting pictures of Rafa's first holiday season! She loved meeting friends and family and New Jersey.

December 20, 2011 - The Meeting Cousins

See no evil, Speak no evil... where's Hear no evil?

Tia Jessy finally gets her girl

Baby Rafa meets her cousins, Derek and Jake
Derek loves his baby. (I think he might have called her that a few times) He would ask me, "Tia when you change Rafaella could I help?"
One little, two little, three little crazians
What is this on my lap??
December 21, 2011 - Rafa Meets Santa

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree with Abuelito
I wonder what she'll call him? Derek calls him "To" short for AbueliTO. Jake calls my mom "Ita" short for AbuelITA. What will Rafa call them?
Derek is a great helper
...especially when it comes to opening presents. Boy after my own heart.
Yes, you see it correctly. My sister and I are wearing the same shirt

Seriously with this face? Looks like Jakey got caught red-handed eating his Mac n' Cheese

Noche Buena - 2011

What did grams get me?
Mazel Tov!
