We celebrated our sweet little Maxwell's birthday on September 15th (one day before his actual birthday). His birthday fell on a Monday so it was easier to do it Sunday so we could get together with family. I can not believe my baby is 3. He is such a fun, imaginative, and happy kid, I just can not get enough of him. We love our Maxwell.
Max is my child in that he loves chocolate. He wanted a chocolate cake. We made it together and then he helped decorate it with sprinkles. He was pretty excited about it.
After church we had my parents, Jason's parents and Jack, Ashely and Owen over for dinner. I did a taco bar because it was quick and easy to prepare.
After dinner, Max opened his presents.
He got a cool police car from Diya and Papa. He is obsessed with being a police officer and getting bad guys.
Opening his Thomas card from Papa John.
He got a huge dump truck from Grandma and Papa Miller.
I wanted to get Max a sandbox for his birthday, but we just couldn't find any that we loved. Jason decided that he would build one. I had to really get on him to buy the stuff and work on it so it would be done by Sunday. He did a great job. The boys helped him work on it a lot during the week, Jason just told them it was something for the bees and they were none the wiser. We wanted one with a lid so we could close it to prevent cats from getting in. Jason made it so the lid folds into little benches for them to sit on while they play.
Ollie and Max were big fans right away.
Max was pretty happy about his sandbox.
