Note the steady camera work, courtesy of my new tripod - a very thoughtful Christmas gift from Jodi.

Well, you all know Matthew is a very good boy so is it any surprise that we received a visit from someone last night... that's right jolly old Saint Nicholas himself paid a visit and dropped a motherlode of presents for the Mattmeister. Here are some highlights....
Just trying to keep up with the cavalcade of media we're piling up here on Matthew's first American Christmas. I wouldn't be surprised if I ran out of hard disk space after this holiday.
Here we are on Christmas Eve after a very nice dinner of pasta puttanesca and lobster newburg and grasshopper pie for dessert. Watch as Matthew gets a head start on unwrapping Christmas presents.

Little Matthew has been feeling a little under the weather these past couple days (he seems to be doing better today) so we thought it would be appropriate to let him open a present a day early.
Here he is enjoying his latest present from Granny and Papa - a new mini piano. As you can see this thing is a real premium toy. It is stained in red mahogany and has carved black feet and a little stool (which Matthew likes to pick up and drop on the ground). I had a little piano like this when I was a baby and I never actually learned to play piano. At the same time I grew up with a great appreciation for music and Matthew will probably have that as well. He already loves listening to music and he's been playing with a little electronic toy guitar daily for the past 3 months.
I am looking forward to him making some sweet music with this pint-sized piano!

Well I have clearly been slacking off in the blogging department so I figured I should get these pics up at some point. Little Matt had a great time on Thanksgiving hanging out with the family and eating lot of turkey and other things.
