Christmas 2012

Dear Amelia and Max - 
I can't believe how fast Christmas snuck up on us! We visited Santa at Ridgedale (I think Santa had been sippin on some adults bevies)
 On Christmas Eve, we headed over to Glamma and Cookies to open presents.
We caught Santa in the backyard. Again, I think he had too many adult bevies! 

 After we opened presents, we drove around looking at Christmas lights.

I thought I heard something in the middle of the night and sure enough, Santa made it to our house...
 while the two of you were sound asleep!
 We woke up at the crack of dawn to open presents!
Santa brought you a wagon, hula hoop, clothes, dance clothes and toys!
 We headed over to Kiki's to celebrate with the Dirks and Soukups! And then back over to Glamma and Cookies to celebrate with the Grade's and SANTA AGAIN!

Thanksgiving 2012

Dear Amelia and Max -
Our Thanksgiving started the Saturday before. We headed over to Aubby, Doodie and Emery's for Thanksgiving with Papa Jim! 

On actual Thanksgiving, Max and I headed to Minnetonka High School to participate in the Turkey Trot! It was a beautiful day, I didn't even wear a jacket! 
 Then we went over to Glamma and Cookies for Colehour Thanksgiving where we did a little skyping with the Stephens!
I am so Thankful for you two, it isn't even funny! Daddy too :)

Amelia + Jaxy, VA style

Dear Amelia and Max -
On November 9th, Amelia - I dropped off you and Cookie to head to Virginia to visit Billy, Pam and Jackson. Glamma was doing some business travel so she just met you there. I dropped you guys off very early and shed a little tear watching my big girl head off without her Mommy or Daddy. 
 You and Jaxy have such a special relationship, you love each other so much - its the cutest thing EVER!
 You didn't even miss us but we sure missed you!

Daddy, Max and I didn't do much of anything...just took cute pictures of Max!
