Carson's First Christmas!

We returned on Sunday from a nice long weekend in California celebrating Carson's first Christmas. Here is a brief photograph recap of our family's first trip!

The Three Schnells at Grandmama and Grandad's house:

Here is our precious little Santa Clause hanging out on the couch:

Carson's Auntie and Cousin Dylan were SO happy to see him when we first arrived to Fresno:

When we got to Modesto, Suzi, Darcy and Melissa all got together with our kids. Our kids are all born within 15 months of each other and this was the first time they all met. Carson, Sean and Elliott are pictured below, TOO cute!

Here is a picture of all the families - Darcy, Jeff and Sean on the left; Melissa, Shannon and Elliott in the middle; and The Schnells on the right.

On Christmas day we went to Nana's so Carson could meet his great grandmother:

Hanging out at Grandmama and Grandad's house, Carson and his cousins were so cute in their Christmas pajamas! (Carson was getting sleepy!)

Here is Carson with his great grandparents on my dad's side - Gene and Dorla (Grandma and Granddad):
Here is the entire Scott family, what a great picture!!
We had a wonderful vacation together and Carson was VERY spoiled on his first Christmas. We didn't have room to post pictures of ALL of his gifts, but I am sure we will get plenty of those pictures in future posts as he gets older and starts to enjoy playing with his gifts.
Happy Holidays to all!!

Today Mommy finally took Carson to sit on Santa's lap. We waited in line for 2 hours, but it was worth it to get this great shot of him.

Carson dreaming of his First Christmas! What a sweetheart!

Fall Fun!

Although today is the official first day of winter, we were able to enjoy the last of the fall leaves over the weekend with Carson.

Please note, this photo shoot was Jeff's idea. The pics came out great, so I won't complain about our newborn son being tossed into a pile of leaves! :)
We are looking forward to celebrating Christmas in California this year with friends and family. We leave on Wednesday and will return on Sunday. Many more pictures to come!

Carson's First Hanukkah!

Last night was the first night of Hanukkah, and we had to light the menorah and celebrate with Carson. Here are a couple cute pictures we got of him sitting by the menorah.

This picture Daddy took of Carson between the candles like it's a field-goal post:
Daddy caught this great moment on camera too, poor baby tipping over, we had to share it. At least it looks like I'm a good Mommy cause I am catching him. :(

This picture is little Carson smiling while his daddy is holding him and singing to him. Too cute!

We have 7 more nights of Hanukkah to celebrate, and although we will probably take pictures every night, we might not post them all to bore you. Many more pictures to come as we celebrate the upcoming holidays with our family in California!

6 weeks old!

Today Carson turned 6-weeks old! He is growing, healthy, happy and doing great. Jeff and I couldn't love him anymore... well, maybe if he slept a few more hours at night! ;)

We enjoyed our first Thanksgiving as a new family, and Grandmama and Grandad came in to spend the weekend with us. We loved being together, and are already looking forward to going to California for Christmas with the rest of the family.

Here are some pictures of our weekend together:

Our little turkey centerpiece. He looks pleased, right?

The happy family!

Here is Carson playing on his little mat:

More pictures and posts to come... Daddy returns home from a week in Boston (for business) in a few hours, and we just can't wait to see him!
