Toy Story 3 ON ICE!!!

One of Max's birthday presents was to go see Toy Story 3 ON ICE in Lexington, KY! This was the big weekend. We didn't tell either one of the kids where we were going, packed up the Tahoe, and started our mini road trip!
Grammy and Pappy were excited to join us! Max absolutely loved it! Seeing his face light up when he saw all of the characters was totally worth the drive.
No, he isn't sleeping in this picture....the flash was a little too bright for our little guy! Although, he did want to fall asleep because it was prime nap time....he refused to close those eyes and miss out!
And of course, Laney Bug got to join in on the birthday fun! She loved it and said her favorite character was "Slink" and Max says his favorite character was "Mickey". Mickey and his friends joined in with the Toy Story crew!

We are so glad we got to take the kiddos to see such a great show!

Race for the Cure 2012

The annual Race for the Cure was another success!! Like always, we had our usual team (Jeannie, Mike, Kim (our survivor!), Addi (Kim's 14 month old), Scott, Grammy, Laney, Mommy, and Vicki! Kim and Mommy ran this year and the others pushed the stroller and did the 5K walk. What a beautiful, but chilly, day to support breast cancer.

Every year we go, I'm in awe by the crowd of people that have been touched by the horrible disease of breast cancer.

Let's Party!!

The party was a success!
Yes, it rained....but it didn't stop this TWO year old to party hard!!

One thing Mr Max loves is Mickey Mouse (aka Mit-Mee)

Mickey cake...check. Mickey balloons...check. Mickey cookies....check.
Pizza and breadsticks.....check, check
We're ready to party!
We had lots of friends and family there to help us party!
Everyone wanted to celebrate Mr Max turning 2!!!
The bouncy house was the big hit for the kiddos! Even though we had rain, we had room in the garage to bounce the afternoon away!
It amazes us how fast these two years have gone. I'm sure this is something that I post every February and April. So get used to hearing it. It has gone FAST.
But we're lovin' every minute of it!

Happy 2nd Birthday Mr Max!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Max!

Two years has come and gone. It's that time of year again to celebrate our little guy, Max!
Of course, we head on over to El Nopal to see Victor for our traditional birthday dinner.
For those of you who don't know, they smash whip cream in the birthday boy/girls face...Max wasn't happy about it.
I really don't blame him, but he enjoyed it once we cleaned him up and everyone stopped laughing at him
Poor thing just doesn't like all of the attention
but how can you NOT pay attention to this little blue eyed boy?
The next tradition was the pancakes in the morning. We had "cake batter pancakes" (compliments of Pinterest) shaped as Mickey Mouse (I tried!). They were pretty yummy!!
Luckily, I have the ability to make my own schedule, so I took the day off to hang out with the Birthday Boy!
He got some cool additions to his new train track, a DVD from Laney, and a "special surprise trip" in a few weeks....stay tuned!!
At 2 years old, Max weighs 26.6 lbs and is 35 inches tall. At his appointment last week, he had a clean bill of health. Dr Kleber said he was right on track with his learning, talking, and growing. We all have bets on when he'll outgrow his big sister! :) Max enjoys Mickey Mouse (more of an obsession), trains, blocks, and trucks. He loves following Laney around and doing everything she does. He sleeps with Theodore from The Chipmunks and carries him throughout the house. He's talking more, but still has his own language at times. We just give him the nod and "yeeaaahhh"....who knows what we're agreeing to!

Happy 2nd Birthday Max Charles! We love you, Hammer!! I've gotta explain the "Hammer" nickname for those that don't know it.....his initials are M.C. so the Hammer just had to be added to the end. Our babysitter, Kenzie, asked why we called him that. My response was, "MC Hammer. Do you even know who that is?" (she's 18 years old). Her response, "Yeah, a wrestler!"
