Christmas with the Orloff clan

From Bethesda, we flew to Boston to join the Orloff's and Nana and Lito for the holiday celebrations.

Just as I enjoyed seeing David interacting with Daniel, I loved seeing him with our nephews, Noah and Gavin.
As always, Noah brings out the silly-ness in his Tio.  
Gavin is developing his own personality that includes lots of curiosity.  I loved capturing this moment of siblings bonding side by side, David and Joelle & Noah and Gavin, with Nana smiling in the background

Joelle found matching pajamas for the boys to wear on Xmas day
Can't leave the girls out!!  Too fun :)  These pj's will make a great outfit to add to my hospital bag for baby A's arrival.  Thanks Tia Joelle <3


We had a great xmas morning and later in the day, we had more guests!  David and Carol, Howie's parents, joined us--as well as one of Carol's siblings and her daughter.  Samantha hopped into this picture as well.  Another great Alevy holiday photo :)

Can't forget that David and I LOVE getting dim sum whenever the opportunity arises.  We returned to the same restaurant we visited 2 years ago when we were in Boston.  It was delicious!!
Baby A seemed to like it too :)

We fit in a quick walk around Boston...but when it began to snow, we headed back to Hopkinton!  I could have stayed out longer, but it was definitely warmer in the Orloff household.

Couldn't pass up on some bowling since it's become a tradition.  I loved sharing some Baby A kicks with Joelle, too.

And an adult's only dinner was in order for all of us.  Another yummy meal on our vacation!

It was a wonderful xmas break.  We missed seeing the Ryan and Bohn families this year, but I know they had a terrific time in sunny Tampa!  Down the road, I know we'll all fit in another get together <3
