Christmas Aftermath...

Mason is done "decking the halls full of jolly..." and Max has gone home to the North Pole until next Christmas. Mason very lovingly says, "Once you get an elf, you have him until you die." Oh how I'm sure Max is looking forward to his visits when Mason turns 40.

One of my favorite things about Christmas is getting pictures of all my friends and their little and now big kids. I like to think they get older and I just stay the same age.

Now, we are consumed with playing the Wii. But if Wii bowling and tennis are anything like real life, I'm going to be the next Steffi Graff. Although, I guess all this playing has convinced Mason that the bowling alley is the place to celebrate turning 7, so it will be good family fun for all.

Getting close, but not too close to Max...

We have now joined the many families with a special little visitor for the holidays. Max has been showing up in a variety of places and even makes the trip from our house to Nana's. Mason can't wait to get up in the morning and see where Max will reappear, but he will not look until Mommy goes with him.

Mason has also been playing basketball and he may not be the tallest on the team, but he wins the prize for having the most energy on the court. Thursday, the Piston's won 22-2, (according to Mason it was 16-4 and he scored 6 baskets), and it was so fun to watch them play so hard. Mason did not actually score, but did do a great job of looking and passing to the player in the best spot to shoot.
