Max sure did get spoiled this year! Santa dropped off a whole lotta gifts for our little boy. Max had a lot of fun opening all of his gifts and playing with some of his toys. I think he may have been a little overwhelmed with all of the new stuff he received. We had a great Christmas too. Thanks, Mom, for spending Christmas with us this year!
We had a wonderful celebration with the Trimble/Weeks side of the family the weekend before Christmas. We had a house full of our family and really enjoyed everyone's company. Max had a great time playing with his Grandparents and Uncles. It'd been too long since we had seen my brother Kris and it was especially nice to spend time with him. Thanks for the visit everyone. You made our Christmas very special.

Santa came for a visit during Max's Christmas Party at school. The middle picture is the face Max made when Santa walked in...hilarious! Max wasn't shy at all and went right up when his name was called and shook Santa's hand and sat on his lap to tell him what he wanted for Christmas this year. Max also received a present! All the kids seemed to really enjoy their visit from Santa.
I had the honor of joining Max at his Christmas Party at school on Thursday. There were several different stations set up for the kids to do different activities. We had a great time. And the teachers were kind enough to bring in a chair for me to sit in so I could take it easy but still be a part of the fun. We had snacks, made chocolate covered pretzels, made a beautiful ornament and reindeer magnet, and also put together a necklace. All the parents also received a present from their kiddos. It was a real treat for all of us.

We had a great impromptu visit from Nana and Bibbon this past weekend. Max enjoyed reading books with Bibbon and playing games on Nana's Ipad. He also had a little adventure up to Owosso to visit with Otto for the day. This allowed Jonathan and I to go on a much needed date! It was a great weekend all around. Thanks for the visit, Lynn & Theron! We love you very much.

I was cleared to drop Max off for his first day of Preschool! We enrolled him in a new school closer to home. We also waited until I was 30 weeks along to get him started. I was so excited to be able to take him myself! Max was a little hesitant in the morning but settled in as soon as we arrived to his new class. His teachers said that he did great and that he fit right in with the other students. I could tell he had a great time by how excited he was when I picked him up. I'm so proud of him and this smooth transition. And we're relieved to have him back in school. (I also included a picture Max took of me. He's quite the budding photographer. And it's a rarity that I'm seen upright these days, so I wanted to document it.)

Max and Otto spent the weekend with Grandma and Grandpa Moeser. Judging from the pictures they had a great time. This was Max's first overnight without us. I was very nervous, but he did great. Tom and Rhonda sure showed the boys a good time. And they got to see Santa! It was obvious by how excited he was when he got home that he had a great time.

Our neighbor, Kim, took Max to her oldest son's, Brady's, school for a Thanksgiving celebration last week. Kim was also nice enough to take my camera with her to capture a little bit of the fun. Max was in a great mood when he got home so I could tell he really enjoyed himself on his Thanksgiving adventure. Thanks, Kim!!

We threw a birthday party for Max at Jungle Java and invited several of his friends and family. I was unable to be there due to my bed rest stint, but I received updates throughout the party via text and photos. (Thank goodness for technology! whoot whoot!). Max had a great time celebrating with his pals and his family. Thank-you to all who were able to attend. You helped make it a very special celebration for Max.
