Ryder's First Christmas

Ryder's first Christmas was great!  We celebrated Christmas Eve with Frank's family....they're Italian, so they have a BIG seafood dinner every Christmas Eve.  Then we celebrated Christmas Day with my family.

Christmas Eve 

Christmas Eve was a lot of fun.  Ryder got lots and lots of attention being the youngest baby.  He slept for a very long time, allowing mommy and daddy to eat and drink! 


The evening ended with lots of presents and all of the grandkids dressing up in their pj's (except Ryder....he was in his Santa outfit).


Christmas Day

Christmas Day was a very special day for our family.  We opened presents with Ryder.  

Then off to Grandma and Grandpa's we went!  We had lots of fun.  The day started with opening presents.  Ryder got his fist Teddy Bear from Grandma and Grandpa.  He loves it!  We had a wonderful dinner and desert, and then Aunt Noelle and Kirby came over for a visit.  They brought with them some presents (including Ryder's first pair of Uggs!).  Ryder also got to meet his Great Grandfather.  What a very special time.
