Christmas Pics

Two weeks ago my friend Stephanie came over to my mom's and took some Christmas pictures of Max and Sadie. She was so good and so patient!! Max was a stinker that day and would have nothing to do with Sadie. She got some great shots of them alone though! The last 2 photos in this post I took in an attempt to try and get a photo of them together. This time Max was a bit more cooperative, but not a whole lot more!! Thanks again to Stephanie!!! :)

We were just standing and talking and looked over and saw Max sitting at the piano like this. He's a funny little guy!!

This was the one shot of them together that day. :) Little pills.

Max's Nativity

Max's version of the nativity scene....

The donkey and the amputated sheep
Two wiseman and a headless one...whose head makes a great ball to throw around the house.

But do you teach a 1 1/2 year old who normally plays with little animal toys that he can't play with's a battle I'm set up to fail.

After many failed attempts, I have finally made beautifully perfect cinnamon rolls!! I don't like to gloat, but I must pat myself on the back for this one. Thanks to My Kitchen Cafe for the recipe!! And now I have 24 cinnamon rolls to eat and a husband who is avoiding sweets...yikes!

What I am most thankful for!

At Thanksgiving dinner my mom has us write down 2 things that we were most grateful for. Here are my obvious choices!! :)

1. Aaron- He is a wonderful husband and a great father!! He works so hard for our family!

2. Two beautiful, healthy kids!! Max and Sadie make every day exciting and new!! Max loves to hug and kiss Sadie all the time, and calls her "Eeee". He runs to her all day saying "Hi Eee". I think his love for her is going to be reciprocated as she grows and they are going to be best friends!!!
( Max loves to have Sadie lay on his back. It's funny!!)
