Max's first Christmas has come and gone, as did our trip to Alaska.  Sad.  Our time in Alaska was awesome!  It truly was like stepping into our own wonderland.  I loved every minute of it, even when the temperature got to -32.  Alaska is wonderful during the summer, but it's so beautiful during the winter.  The snow on the trees was breath taking.  I loved it!!!

While we were there Ian played in a basketball and hockey alumni game.  His team won both games!  It was really cool seeing his school.  It reminded me of the school in Vaughn.  :)  When he played his hockey game it was the first time I've seen him play.  It was amazing!  He played so well, and scored a goal!!  I was a proud wife!!  I was sitting in the heated car taking pictures!

Some  new firsts for Max this trip:

-First plane ride!  Max was a great little traveler!  He fussed some on the plane, but those around us were wonderful and he slept most of the time on all flights.   One of the ladies we sat by wanted to hold him when he was fussy.  I told he was tired and luckily I put him in the sleeper hold and out he went!
-Seeing and holding snow.  Not that he'll remember, but his reaction was priceless.  He hates anything cold or being cold I tell you! 
-Max was introduced to rice cereal...umm I don't think he liked it too much and didn't react well to it.  I'm reintroducing it to him now at home, and so far so good.  Fingers crossed!
-Meeting his Auntie Nicole, Uncle Cleo, and cousins Jaden and Amaya.  He took a liking to Jaden and was full of smiles.  Jaden was making him laugh by running up to him and saying, "Ho, ho ho! Merry Christmas!"  It was adorable.
-Meeting Santa. 
-Max had his first photo shoot.  Ian and Nicole's high school friend, Eddie, is a photographer and took photos of our families.  The pictures turned out great!  Max did pretty good!  If you'd like to look at the pictures you can go to http://www.jalapenophotography.smugmug.com/ click on Ian and Jen.  The password is Little Bear.

2010 was the year of Max.  It was full of happy memories and great adventures with family and friends.  When I got married, I couldn't imagine life any other way.  Ian made each day that much better.  Life as a mom is the exact same.  Max makes every day better.  Every day with him is a surprise because we never know what he'll do that day.  I can't wait to make many more happy memories and great adventures in 2011.
