  1. I just love, love, love those Lego wreaths! Did you order a kit or just use those pieces…and how did you get so many green and red pieces?

  2. I ordered all the green and red pieces from the Pick a Brick division at Lego.com. The wreath was featured in the Christmas catalog and we knew exactly how many greens and reds to order. It was such a fun and easy project.

    One thing I forgot to do, though, was stick a label on the back with his name and the year for everyone.

  3. Hi Anna!

    I figured it was time to stop “stalking” you on bloggy world and get a blog of our own to keep in touch as we venture into our next stage of life. I miss everyone back home and absolutely love reading your blog-it makes me feel like I am still there at times. The pictures of Max and Mini are adorable and I look forward to chatting online in the future:)

    Much love,
    Robin

  4. Wow, he is getting so big! And his personality totally shines through in all of those pictures. I was telling a friend here today how much I love looking at your blog (and Sabrina’s!) cuz you post pictures of the kiddos and it makes me feel a part of your lives still. Love it! Thank you for sharing the pictures.. !!

  5. This is a really great post, Anna. You must take a million pictures to catch all these little moments! However do you narrow it down to (slightly more than) a dozen??? I can only imagine the pictures we’re missing!
