"Ears" and his eyes

Max has a new nickname....


He listens intently to every conversation Matt and I have. A few weeks ago, while trying to have a "one on one" conversation with Matt, I looked over and Max was up in my face. And then it just came out. "Ears, go do something else, you're not part of this conversation. Hey, Ears, I like that..." and it stuck. I've been calling him Ears ever since.

On another note...

there's something new about ears...

his "eyes"

He is now a glass wearing, four eyed 8 year old. His left eye is 20/25 and his right eye is 20/40. We hope wearing glasses helps correct some minor vision problems. We had a hard time finding a pair that fit his narrow head, so for now, these will do. We ordered another pair that will be here in about 4 weeks. They fit a little better and will be lighter on his face.

I think he looks stinking cute!

Neglecting the blog

Here's our happenings from the past month. Enjoy!

Meet Cathrine. Max has good taste, she's a cutie.

She wants a barbie...good thing she got 8!

Max doesn't believe in Santa anymore but posted for a photo anyways. Doesn't he look like he's not buying it? Ha ha!

Mia's first real time in the snow. She wouldn't stop eating it and loved it.

A lot of TV watching

Making cookies...yum, yum!

Luke biting everyone's chin that he can get a hold of.

Max went shooting with dad, uncle Jason, Grandpa, Nate, and Andy. It got so cold he had to wait in the car. You'd think he's used to 70 degree weather.

Jason DeVilliers brithday party. Our first real outing without kids. We really enjoyed it!

A trip to disneyland with cousin Auri

Our baby is finally getting over being sick for most of his life...2009 should be a good year for us. We can't wait to see what's in store for us. Happy new year too you all!
