Here's a picture of Max from this time last year; he was 6 1/2 weeks old. This picture was taken January 17th, so it's almost to the day!

Wow! Sometimes Mommy gets lucky and gets an extra day off (Thanks Martin Luther!) and something really fun happens... SNOW! Yesterday we had our first real snow if the season, it seems like those always happen on Daddy's Birthday.

Well, Daddy had to work so Max and Mommy got to go out and play in the snow. Max loved it. He just wanted to eat the snow. Then he decided he would walk up the driveway. He fell, on his face. Baby face and snow do not mix so we had to go back in. We did get out for a few minutes later in the day which he really enjoyed. Max LOVES the snow!

Max's first snow angel!

Merry Christmas!

Diegel Doggie, we were so happy to have you fly out to Chicago for Christmas. You spent the whole week at grandma and grandpa's house with mommy and daddy and Auntie Em and Uncle Ape. You got to see just about everyone in the family, aunts and uncles, grandma's, grandpa's! They were all excited to see how big you were. You showed everyone all your tricks...'oh no' and blowing kisses, even your melt downs :)

Auntie and Uncle Cashew bought you Elmo Live...Auntie was so excited to get it for you, you were not so impressed and were scared of Elmo's story.
After a few days, you warmed up and really liked honking Elmo's nose.
Grandpa got you a matching car, he was more excited then you were!

We took you to see Santa and Auntie had so much fun riding the Christmas train with you!
You were not very impressed by Santa, we did everything to get you to smile...this was about all you gave us...
You did pause for a moment for Auntie to get your picture in your Santa outfit...ho ho ho!
We already miss you so much! It is not fair you live so far away. We are counting down the days until we get to see you in Florida! Yippeeeee!!
