Jail Bird

LOTS of fun to be had throwing things off the deck into the yard.

More exploring in the yard

It was 71 and gorgeous here yesterday, so we took advantage of the great weather and spent most of the day outside.  Max went on LOTS of back yard adventures!


Before church yesterday, Max climbed up on our bed to read some of his books.  He likes to point out the best parts to us.

I like boys who wear Abercrombie & Fitch

Not Abercrombie, actually, but some of these do look like they could be straight from the catalog.  We spent a lot of time playing outside this afternoon, and captured some of Max in his big back yard.

 Exploring the trees

 It's a jungle out there


 Taking a break

 And just before naps, checking to be sure Daddy is doing okay out there all by himself


Go team!

So very thankful

 Working away on the Alton Brown-approved turkey
 Table all set to go!

 Yes, I did make that fabulously good looking (and tasting) turkey
 Digging in!
 Presiding over his first real Thanksgiving, complete with all the trimmings!

'Tis the Season

Max met Santa last weekend at the Jr League's fundraiser.  We met Santa, heard a story, and saw a toy train set up next door.  Loved it all except the sitting on Santa part.  Pics of Max's first real Thanksgiving dinner to come, but here's to a fantastic Christmas season!

Anatomy of a Max photo shoot

OK, I'll play - I like to smile for you!
 Seriously lady, didn't you get it already?
 YOU try to smile all the time, lady!
