Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Max and Jonathan decorated our Christmas tree the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I watched and took pictures from a horizontal position on the floor. The tree turned out beautiful!

Thanksgiving at Brady's School

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!!

Max's 3rd Birthday Party!!

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.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Big Boy!!

Max turned three on November 18th. We're so proud of all our big boy has achieved this year: sharing, using the potty, washing his hands, using pedals on his tricycle, hitting a baseball, catching and throwing a football, saying "please", "thank-you", and "I'm sorry", saying "I love you", camping, sleeping in his big boy bed, flying on an airplane with ease, the list goes on. Max brings us so much joy and we're incredibly proud and fortunate to be his parents. We love our sunny boy!

Camden's 4th Birthday Party

Max spent last Tuesday with my neighbor Kim. He had a great time playing with her boys, Camden and Brady, as well as another neighbor's kid's, Joey and Sienna. Max had his bad hair cut corrected by one of Kim's friends (bottom pic is pre-fix). Phew! After playing at Kim's house everyone headed to McDonald's to celebrate Camden's 4th Birthday with some lunch and fun at the Playland. Thank-you Kim for taking such good care of my boy and adding to the fun in his life!

Terrible Hair Cut

Max and his daddy went out and about on Sunday and Max received a much needed haircut. Unfortunately, I think his hair was cut by a blind woman. Poor lil guy looks ridiculous.

Max and his buddy, Gus

We had a visit from Emma and Gus on Saturday. I really enjoyed the company and Max and Gus entertained us with some music. Gus' daddy is a musician and it looks to me like the talent runs in the family. Jam on it, boys.

Happy Halloween!

Max and Otto went trick or treating around the neighborhood with Jonathan, Melissa, and Brian. They were troopers considering how much they had to walk, but I think the candy was good motivation. Jonathan brought a chair outside for me to sit in so I could be a part of the fun by passing out candy. I did break the rules and get up for a quick minute so I could get a pic of Max on my phone. Other than that, I followed my "rest" protocol and remained off my feet for the night.


This is a proud Max showing off his pumpkin before going into Milford for some Halloween fun with his Daddy.

Pumpkin Carvin

Jonathan and Max carved pumpkins on Saturday while I watched from the couch. I did drill holes in one of the small pumpkins so I could be a small part of the fun. Max was pretty excited to scoop out the insides and help his Daddy carve faces to make Jack O' Lanterns. After pumpkin carving, Jonathan took Max into downtown Milford for some trick or treating at a few of the local businesses. He said it was packed! But Max thoroughly enjoyed getting his nummies.

Papa's Visit

Jonathan's Papa was in town for a quick visit so we had a little celebration at our house. It was great to spend time with family and it was wonderful to see Papa. He seemed to have a good time and we enjoyed our visit with him. He lives in California so we truly cherish the time we get to spend with him. Thanks for the visit, Papa!!
