Cousin Sam

My brother sent some new pictures of my nephew Sam, Max's cousin. Sam is just over 9months. So cute! Also pictured is Karin, Sam's mom and Grandmom.

Lunch bags

Brent goes all out when it comes to making Max's daily lunch bags special! I am not talking just about the actual food INSIDE the bag but the exterior look of the actual brown bag itself. Every day, Brent draws some cool picture of a monkey or maybe the rocketship from the Little Einstein TV show or even Lightning McQueen from Max's favorite movie "Cars"! He gets really into it and colors them with colored pencils! One morning Max asks; "Daddy, what did you make today"? It was a hectic morning and Brent had not yet drawn anything. Maybe he thought that he could skip it once and just write Max's name on the bag and maybe add a happy face? Not a chance. When he saw how disappointed Max became when he saw the blank bag, Brent immediately drew him a Zebra! Funny though...this morning, Brent was done with the bag and he was anxious to show it to Max who screams (with joy) "a walrus"!! Brent had not drawn a walrus but a puppy! We laughed so hard!
