Happy "2" to Max!

Max turned 2 on Sunday, and we had a big family party for him on Saturday at my parent's house. It was so fun to have my entire family there (my sister from San Fran and her kids were here!!!) and Pat's mom and sisters, too. It was a dinosaur party and Max refused to take off his dino costume (last years Halloween costume). He was so cute. We had yummy chili in breadbowls and dino nuggets for the kids. He got so many cute gifts. He truly loves dinosaurs. There was also a T-Rex pinata, which Lukas busted after a few hits. We go in order of age, so only 3 kids hit it and then it broke and everyone was sad, so we taped it up and had the kids whack it until it was in shreds. They had fun hitting an empty, taped up pinata! I usually have three different parties (a friend party, and then a different party for each side of the family). It turned out perfect this year combining it and Max was the center of attention! All the cousins had a blast running around and playing and making lots of noise. It couldn't have turned out better. And my mom and I made THE cutest dinosaur cake! I was so impressed with myself. Every cake I have ever made has been a disaster and NOT CUTE at all, so when this one actually turned out just how it was supposed to, I was thrilled! We are so glad that Max is part of our family and we love him so much! Happy Birthday to our little Maxers!
