After painting with brushes and fingers, Max decided he wanted to try his feet. He loved the way the paint felt on his toes.

The most wonderful time...

The day after Thanksgiving we continued our tradition of cutting down our Christmas tree. Sure, we could get a cheaper tree with less hassle at Home Depot but we started this tradition three years ago and now we're stuck with it.

We jokingly told the kids they needed to hold the twine or the tree would fall off the car. The kids took their jobs very seriously.

Especially Scarlett :)

It's amazing to witness Scarlett's imagination. Today in the bath, she rescued a little imaginary baby bug. Like all of Scarlett's imaginary animals, he was sad because he wanted his mommy. After reuniting him with his mommy on Neverland Island, the baby bug was still sad because he wanted his daddy. Luckily we were able to catch him, and the bugs lived happily ever after. The imaginary baby birds she found in the tub were not so lucky. She ate them.

Boba Fett

Max is super excited to be Boba Fett for Halloween. After his jet pack arrived he exclaimed, "I want to wear this naked!" Every boys dream?

Max's first time bowling. He LOVED it and mommy and Max both bowled a 91, with the bumpers up of course.

Sick Scarlett and Doctor Max

Scarlett demanded Max play doctor with her today. In addition to lots of fake coughing she proclaimed the following:
"I have a fever!"
"I'm sick. I need to rest up."
And my personal favorite, "I have a cut in my mouth. I need medicine!"
