It was a fun christmas at the Kaplun household.  Matthew was very excited about Santa coming and opening gifts. 

"WTF is that giant singing red thing?"

One of My favorite toys Matthew you got... a glow in the dark race track with cars that race around lighting it up.  The whole family jammed into the small downs stairs bathroom to play with it. 

Future Pianist?

Grandpa got Matthew an awesome new batman cape and knock down doll

He's still in love with Dusty and loved this talking version.

"Look Mom! More planes!"


Fun family time

Phantom thought the whole experience was just exhausting!


Santa came!!!

I took the boys to steamboat for a 3 day ski vacation.  Thank you very much grandma and grandpa Johns  for watching Ethan so I could ski.

We went to an italian restaurant one night and they gave Matthew a ball of dough to play with while we waited for our food.  What a great idea! He loved it!

Ethan is teething and loved chewing on some bread

Jet tub in our condo was AWESOME!!

Matthew headed off to his first day of Ski School. 

Super cute!

"I mean really?"

"This is too humiliating"


"how humiliating!"

"Really?"  This guys is only 8 months old… how huge!!

Such a sweet puppy!

Just too stinking cute!


"I can't believe you are doing this to us!"

The outtakes are great too!
