Our Christmas Events

Christmas will officially be over for the Reinhart Family tonight! We have had so much fun celebrating with family and friends, and tonight is the last of the celebrations! I would LOVE to post all of the pictures that have been taken within the past week, but with over 400 pictures to post, I decided on posting one or two from each Christmas!
Santa brought Laney and Max a double seater sled! Laney was so excited and couldn't wait to use it, but unfortunately, the sled was delivered with a small crack in it from Santa's sleigh! :(
Max LOVED tearing the tissue paper and playing with the boxes and bows! He didn't even need gifts this year, but of course, he got plenty!

Santa also brought Laney and Max a 2010 yellow Camaro! :) They'll be driving around our neighborhood in style! We're hoping this weekend it warms up so they can drive it outside and not just in the kitchen!

So excited!!

The stockings were filled for the entire family

Our Christmas Tree 2010 (the gifts wrapped in red are from Santa. He wraps all of the gifts from him in red and puts an "L" or "M" on the package)

We left cookies out for Santa to eat, and this is what I found as I was cooking breakfast! Laney didn't want to waste any of the yummy cookies that Santa left behind.

Sprinkling "Reindeer food" outside for Rudolph and his friends!

We had such a fun time and are looking forward to 2011! We have so many fun things in 2011 planned. Miss Laney will be turning 3, Max will be turning 1, we will be going on a family vacation, & we have 2 cousins getting married! That's just a few of the exciting things that will be going on!
Happy New Year's to all of our Family and Friends!

Polar Express 2010

This year, we ventured down to French Lick, IN to ride on the Polar Express! We had read Laney the book once we bought the tickets, just to get her familiar with the storyline. She and Charlo were SO excited to see and ride the train! We bundled the kids up in their jammies and slippers, coats, & hats! It was a perfect day to ride the Polar Express...a little snow and freezing cold!

Getting ready to board the train!

They're so stinkin' cute!

We had a wonderful trip. It's something we will definitely want to do again! We'll be sure to include the younger kids and the Daddy's next time!

Max 8 Months!

Mr. Max is now 8 months old!
So, at 8 months, what is Max up to?? Well, he REALLY wants to crawl, but just can't get the courage to actually do it. He'll lay on his tummy and just scoot along the floor. He has learned to clap and wave, which is super cute watching him do it. His little laugh is so contagious, I seriously couldn't get tired of hearing it! He's talking up a storm, too! "Da-da" was his first word! (Of course it was!) :) Max is sleeping awesome for us. He sleeps about 11-12 hours at night, takes a 1 1/2 hr nap in the morning, and then a 2-2 1/2 hour nap in the afternoon. Luckily, Mommy got Laney and Max on the same nap schedule in the afternoon. I'm sure both Nana and Grammy (since they watch the kiddos) are thrilled about that, also! It just makes the afternoon peaceful for everyone!
Miss Laney is enjoying being a big sister. She loves that Max can sit up and play with her. Sometimes she isn't so sure she likes that he can play with her toys, but she's learning the importance of sharing!
We are all so excited to celebrate Christmas this year! We just sit back and this how much our lives have changed since last year at Christmas. We all have so much to be thankful for!
