Merry Christmas from the Koontz's!

Brooke made sure to make it home for the holidays. She joined us December 21st, weighing 7 lbs 1.6 oz, and 19.25 in long.
Quite possibly Brinley's favorite part of Christmas morning--using the remote to trigger the camera.
...quite possibly her least favorite.

In case your were interested, here is Brinley's meeting with St. Nick last year.

Our Last Two Years

Coke nailed it in this 60 second TV spot. The Argentine depiction of early parenthood perfectly describes the the last two years for Rachel and I. From the positive pregnancy test, to the explosion of Toys R' Us in our little apartment, to the second positive test--complete with feelings of pure excited and terror--and all the mischief in between. And as I look back, I wouldn't want it any other way.

We went out to the theater this morning to see Disney's Frozen with Brinley. She was mesmerized by the screen!

After walking around the city we came home to find lighting crews, actors, and production staff swarming our apartment. Just a couple weeks ago they were filming an HBO movie, "Olive Kitteridge," one blocks down the street. The filming at our apartment will be in a Dell commercial. Since this doesn't happen everyday we decided to take a couple photos.

Our apartment building!

They spread snow around our apartment and used "snow candles" to make it look like it was snowing.
