Christmas Fun!

Now that Max is 2, the Christmas season is so fun!  He gets excited about all the lights! We have a Santa Christmas Countdown so he's familiar with the old jolly guy...well maybe.  We'll see how he does when he goes to see him.  Seeing the joy on his face though, and hearing the excitement in his voice is the best

Friday night we made a gingerbread house.  Max took this as a serious job, and each candy was placed with extreme concentration.  He would accidentally put his hand in the frosting and say, "uh-oh!" and then lick his little fingers.  The occasional candy would somehow end up in his mouth.  At first Ian and I tried to help him along and make the house look like the one on the box, but Max had more fun sticking candy where ever the heck he wanted (including his mouth).   The finished product is now part of our Christmas decorations.

Yesterday we spent the majority of the day out and about running errands, shopping, and the most exciting part was going to Zoo Lights.  While we were at dinner we told him where we were going and he started jumping up and down and yelling.  He tried climbing over me so we could get the show on the road.  Seriously, this kid is too cute.   We met Mel and Jakub there and the zoo parking lot was full so we had to park in the A's parking lot, which is kind of a walk away.  There were just tons of people.  When we got to the zoo the lines were kinda long to get in, but it honestly wasn't bad.  Once we were in, the lights were awesome.  Max loved every light he saw.   He saw giraffes, butterflies, spiders, rabbits, a dragon and wizards...there was so much to see.  The lights were so pretty and bright.  By the end of our night my feet were killing me, but we had so much fun.  :)  Max was asleep within 5 mins of getting into the car.

This week Max and K are going to continue making Christmas crafts AND they are going to decorate an upside down sugar cone with green frosting to make their own Christmas trees.  There will be messes, and there will most definitely be pictures.

I hope you guys had a great weekend!  Enjoy your Sunday!

Look at the seriousness on his face.  :)
