First Day of School – 2013-2014

Ella is in 5th grade, and Max is in Kindergarten?
Unbelievable… And so wonderful!

A photo from this morning in the school room, and a video (click on the link below the photo named “max K day one” to play) I captured of Max singing his Happy First Day of School song and dance. 🙂

max K day one

Christmas in MKE

So, we spent much of the holidays in Milwaukee with the Wimmer family.. Max finally met Grandma Wimmer (aka PawPaw), his Great Aunt Marilyn, Aunt Connie and Uncle Randy, Uncle Denny and Aunt Chrissy and all the other boy cousins.. Uncle Greg and Aunt Candy even got back early from Texas to see us before we left town..

Ella was  pretty happy to have seen all her girl cousins a few days before to have some girlie time – as you can see, she was ready to get in there with the boys playing Rock Band!

It was a big ol’ trip in winter weather. .we survived very well .. totally filled up our little truck with goodies.. and of course everyone got time with the newest member of the family.  

Christmas at Yoders

We all went out to Coopersville to Grandma and Grandpa Yoder’s house a couple of days before Christmas.. we met up with Marshall’s sister Cozette and all of her family.. Oh boy, did Ella have fun with the girls!.. Elijah was very happy to have met his boy cousin.. we think he felt that the odds were evened out a little bit with one more boy in the mix…and everyone got to meet Max.
