Thanksgiving 2010

We celebrated our first holiday as a family of three, and it was AWESOME! We had a great trip to North Carolina, and spent a great couple days with Max's Grandpa and Grandma Kull and Aunt Virginia. The weather was great and we had a ton of fun hanging out!

Max continues to amaze us every day. He's speaking more and more everyday and he's such a fun kid you can't help but smile whenever you're around him. We're planning on putting up our Christmas tree tonight, and I can't wait to introduce Max to that super fun tradition. We've already been talking about Santa Clause, and about Baby Jesus' birthday. Soooooo excited to share this Christmas season with Max!!!!

The Magic House

This week we had a super fun day out with our really good friends Matt and Carrie and their two beautiful girls Addie and Ella. Addie and Max are the same age, and the two of them had a great time! We had never been to the Magic House, and it did not disappoint! They had a ton of real world scenarios all set up in toddler size, it was awesome! There was a restaurant where the kids could make pizza and work at the cash register, a bank, a post office, a grocery store, a hospital with a new born nursery, and a pond where the kids could fish, and then take there fish "up stream" and follow them back down to the pond. Max really had a great time!!!!

The weather is really cooling down around here and Max has perfected his "brrrrrr"!!! Poor guy, I'm not sure he's too fond of the big winter coat we got for him, but I know he appreciates the warmth! Next week we are headed to N.C. for Thanksgiving with Grandma and Grandpa Kull! It should be a blast!!!

And look at him now!!!

Wow, its hard to believe that it was one month ago today that we picked our shy, quiet little boy up from the babies home. Wow, have things changed!!! Max LOVES, and I mean LOVES to entertain! If he's getting a laugh, then he's done his job!

He's always singing, or dancing, or being goofy somehow. I love it!!!! He's such a happy kid, and hopefully that's a reflection of his happiness being with us! He's talking a ton now, and always wants to learn new words. I never thought he'd catch on so quick! Yesterday he went to childrens' church for the first time, and he did great! God's word is so true. He knew the plans he had for us, and they sure were plans for our good! Max is the best gift we could have ever received, and we are a PERFECT fit!

Thought I'd share a little video of his latest "performance"!!!

Our little rock star!

I know its hard to hear, and the quality isn't great, but he was just so proud to sing his "A B C's" I just had to post it! Can't believe how fast he picked it up! Still needs some work on a lot of the pronunciations, but hey....I think its pretty darn good!!!

Two peas in a pod!

So, we hoped it would be the case, but it was AWESOME to see just how well Max and his cousin Noah got along. Max still can't stop talking about him! While all our family was still in town, we all got together at my folk's house for a barbecue. We also all headed to the park across from their house for some good ol' fashion fun! The boys had a blast!!! Where one went, the other followed! That was also Halloween night, and while Max wasn't quite ready for trick-or-treating himself, he had a good time checking out Noah's dinosaur costume! Max also LOVED checking out Pop's motorcycle!!

In the one week that we've been back in the states, we've noticed an INCREDIBLE boost in Max's English! Seriously, he keeps blowing us away! He's just so darn smart!!!! We're having an absolute blast just being a family of three, and settling into our own little routine at home.

Enjoy the pictures!!
