Santa made a stop by the MacDonald house this evening. As he was walking up to the house, he got stopped by a police officer that was driving by to make sure he was on the up and up. I think that is hilarious. The boys had mixed emotions about Santa. Micah was too involved in his new Thomas the Train book to care about Santa and Max thought it was cool but didn't really think it out of the ordinary to see him. Why wouldn't Santa stop by to see Max?
A couple of gifts and hugs later, Santa was back on his way to deliver presents.
So I was feeling bad about not updating the blog in so long. I really like to keep up on this. I was thinking, "Man, I'm such a slacker" until I looked at everyone else's blog and noticed they hadn't really been updated much either. Thanks everyone for making me feel better. Tis the season for a million other things to do besides blog huh! Merry Christmas everyone and have a wonderful new year!
Saturday we celebrated Christmas with the Endres side of family. The boys got spoiled rotten just like they do every year. Here's a picture of grandpa Dan with all the grandkids. I think they are a handsome bunch.
Last Tuesday on Max's birthday we went to Chucke Cheese's. We had the entire place to ourselves and it was great. My mom, sister and niece met us there. We all had a great time. Jason was even able to leave work and meet us for a bit.
Max loves all the "shoot gun" games.
and of course the monster truck.
Micah went for the low key bus ride.
the boys both rode this roller roaster ride. It was the funniest thing to watch them. They both plugged their ears.
Micah rode this bike plane but he wasn't too sure about it.
Go Max go! I think Jason was letting him win but we won't tell Max that.
Max's birthday is actually tomorrow on the 14th but we celebrated it on Saturday. It was a nice, laid back party spent with family. Tomorrow Max has a dentist appointment on his birthday. Good thing he likes the dentist. I actually scheduled this on purpose so we could leave to dentist, which is in Saginaw, and go right to chuckee cheeses. Grandma Tina, Daddy, Aunt Lori and cousin Jessie are meeting us for another little party. It should be a fun time.
As usual, Max got spoiled.
Micah managed to make both grandmas' day with some hugs.
We were thrilled that the baby showed up.......and of course my brother and sister-in-law.
Uncle Jon, who is in fishing ternaments all summer every year, was happy to get Max the fishing pole he wanted.
Crayola amazes me with the creative things they come up with for kids. Uncle Lance and Aunt Brooke got Max this thing that lets you put sound into your picture when you color. How cool is that?
Uncle Shane came through with an awesome Optimus Prime transformer that makes really loud noises. Thanks Uncle Shane! We love that you always buy the boys really loud toys!
We got Max a new bike. We were suppose to have Max's party at Jay's mom's house but Grandpa Don was sick so we moved the party to the church. Good thing, this gave Max a place to ride his new bike.
