Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is always fun around our house. Mojo and I had a big breakfast at our house (the classic german pancakes and blackberries & raspberries). after we opened presents from our west coast family we watched my favorite Christmas movie Love Actually (watch it! but it has some bad scenes...but its great!) We made coffee and stayed in our pjs and watched the movie on our computer in bed. Then my cousins Micah and Dave came over and we hung out until it was time to get ready for Maggie's baptism. Later after the service we had a big dinner at my parents house and got new christmas pjs. Maggie had her first BIG laugh with her cousin Ellie. She had laughed with me once but Ellie made her laugh very loud and hard. it was a wonderful sound to hear. She has a great laugh!!! We spent the night and woke up to Ellie and Atticus singing Christmas caroles at our door. Here is Maggie in her new Christmas Pjs and the pretty house awaiting Santa.

Child of the Covenant

On Christmas Eve our sweet daughter was baptized. We couldnt have picked a more precious day for this sacrament. Our entire east coast family was there and my dad assisted in the baptism. The service was a 4 oclock service andthere were readings that various people in the church read and we sang hymns in between. Craig, our pastor, was able to give alot of time to the baptism and discussing what the sacrament means and what a covenant child is. Sweet Mags fell asleep during the song right before the baptism and slept through the whole thing even when the water was placed on her head. So sweet!!! It was a really holy & important moment that cant really be described. It just seems really surreal to answer the questions that the pastor asked Mojo and me. I've watched so many people do the same with their children. Craig officiated our wedding and our vows to each other and God and it seemed right for him to be the person to lead us in this new vow to raise Maggie in a christian home. It truly was a blessed day.

We love bath time!

One of maggie's favorite things is to take a bath. here we are in a our matching pink bathrobes getting ready for bathtime. As soon as Mags gets in the water she starts kicking like crazy! She gets a real intense look on her face and kicks until we take her out. I'd post some pictures of bath time but I never cared for those types of photos, so you'll have to trust me. She's gonna take after her papa and be a swimmer...

Christmas Fun!

We hosted our Neighborhood group's christmas party this week. i forgot to take pictures of people so here are some pictures of some non-people. fyi, peppermint sticks in hot chocolate melt and make a yummy drink!

We started off this week by going to meet Santa (who happens to be Maggie's Papa joe. good thing for Maggie!)

just like her daddy

the finished product....

sweet Mags tired from all the fun.

this morning i made German pancakes for breakfast. after our coffee we kept our p.js on and started decorating the house. We pulled out the christmas vinyl to get us in the spirit. With the sounds of Joan Boaz, Nat King Cole, Bing and Johnny we got our sweet little tree all dressed up for Christmas.

the hunt for the perfect tree.

First night in crib

Last night Mags slept in her crib in her own room! she has been sleeping in the moses basket next to our bed but I think it was starting to hinder her sleeping through the night. She went 9 hours between eating! Hooray for her own crib!

high school bf's

my sweet friends from Ga came to meet little Mags this weekend. they showered her with love and kisses all weekend.

We had such a great thanksgiving this year. The Morginskys have so much to be thankful for....a great home, an amazing family whom we love, great friends, and a wonderful daughter! We had Thanksgiving dinner with our cousins and my parents and it was a blast. I even made a blackberry pie and cut out a turkey in the pie crust....i was a regular Martha Stewart! Here are some photos from the day.

I'll be the first to write a winter blog....

It seems there is always a day when you wake up and know that winter has come. today was that day for me. i know its winter when i have to make sure to wear a bathrobe around my house. not for the obvious reasons of staying warm but more so no one in my back alley can see me walking around the house in my skivvies. most of the year the side of the yard without the privacy fence is covered up with trees. and we just dont want to get shades for our french doors out the back. so winter has come and so has my bathrobe.
its been an especially wintery weekend. its dreary and LOOKS cold outside. i've been huddled up inside all weekend as we all seeem to be coming down with colds. i made kate's recipe of homemade chicken noodle soup last night. it was a hit. and now i'm finishing up the autobiography of Malcolm X and drinking pomegrante cider from sam n' zoes.
this is only the second christmas as mrs.morginsky. and obviously the first with a newborn. holidays are so much more fun with a family. i am waiting with anticipation to decorate this friday. i just bought lighted snowflakes to hang in our long hallway so when folks walk in it will be like a winter wonderland. pictures coming forth.
oh, and i changed the setting so outside folks can post comments now. i'm a true blogger!

Maggie's Zayde

so Zayde (pronounced zayda) is Yiddish for grandpa. Mojo's dad came to visit us last week and spoil Maggie with Zayde love! He spoiled Harriett too!

My first playmate

Maggie says, "So this is my buddy Evan. He is my first playmate. We enjoy all the same things like taking walks with our moms, sitting in our slings and milk! i just got my first shots in this picture so i wasnt too happy but Evan sure is cute isnt he?"
