Christmas 2010

We had an amazing Christmas this year! At first I was a little sad because we didn't travel back to Massachusetts, but it ended up being great to spend the holiday in Sandpoint.

Max really enjoyed the tree! He was a great help to daddy as he sawed off the top of the tree so we could fit the star. Max was fun; for the weeks leading to Christmas, he'd got and point out the different ornaments on the tree .. Train! Plane! Red! Green! Fun stuff!

Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve, we went and had a play date with our best friend, Chloe. It was lots of fun and the beginning of the present extravaganza.

No play date is complete without a little tea party.

Then we drew some nice pictures for Santa.

Christmas Morning

Max had a ball Christmas morning! It didn't take long for him to get into the swing of things and open presents. He did want to play with each gift right away which made for a looong time in opening. We had to take a little breakfast break at one point.

We LOVE Max's wild thing pajamas! He's quite funny roaring and stamping his claw feet.

Uncle Brian come over in the morning for some coffee and to share gifts with Max. Although, Max pretty much insists on helping everyone open their presents. Unwrapping is lots of fun.

Chrismtas stocking made by Auntie Becky was great. You can see Max sporting a fun tie dye shirt from Auntie Candy.

Christmas at Uncle Brian's House

We went to Brian's for Christmas dinner. It was great fun as Ami and Hadli were also there. Hadli really liked looking up to Max and following him around to see what he was up to. I think Max enjoyed being the "big kid" too.

Max showing Hadli how much fun playing on the stairs can be.

KISSES! This is the awesome face Max makes when he wants mama to give him kisses. Then ne yells, "no!" so I will chase him and tackle him with kisses. Too dang cute! Gets me every time.

Having fun being silly with Uncle Brian.

I also love that now, every picture of Max, has him holding a car of some sort in at least one hand.

Thank you!

Anyone who knows Max knows he still does lots of sign language in addition to his growing vocabulary. He was SOO sweet ... after every present ... he said and signed, "thank you!"
