Winter Helper

We woke up today to a beautiful blanket of fluffy snow. By 9 am it was already starting to get heavy and wet so we had to hurry and get the driveway shoveled. Max was eager to help so he grabbed the extra shovel and went to work...

As pretty as the snow was today, I hope this winter business will be over soon. I am so ready to throw the gear in storage and move on to rain boots and bright yellow rain coats. Max's warm jacket has bit the dust - the zipper just keeps ripping open and out pops his little tummy! Yep, that's right old man Winter, it's time to move along now...

Birthday Party!

Today we had Max's 2nd Birthday Party with his best buddies - it was a really fun day. We started off at the hill with a little sledding. And then back to the house for brunch, cake and lots of playing. Max is 'getting it' now and was pretty excited yesterday when we told him we were having a birthday party. He loved the Happy Birthday banner that we hung up for him and was thrilled with all of his beautiful gifts. Cards and gifts have been arriving at the house this past week and Max gets so excited when he sees a colorful envelope in the stack of mail - he is very proud of his cards that say how special he is - I am sure Max thinks 2 is pretty cool...

Max, I promise that I won't decorate with hearts forever...I just can't help myself!

Thanks William, Kylee and Reid for a special day - Max was sorry to see everyone go.
