So I'm (Mad Max) learning new words each and every day. Yesterday, I took out some kitchen pans and said .. "cook, cook, cook." Mommy said "what are you making me?" ... umm, Mommy, I said "cook" what are you making me, please!? Hah. Joking. I was cooking "ca" of course. You figure that one out, kids.
So now with the Christmas and Holiday Season in full swing, I'm really enjoying the IGHTS (lights for those of you that need to work on your context clues). We have IGHTS all over our Christmas tree.
Speaking of which (hang with me, please) ... what is your next stop this weekend? Are you doing anything fun that relates to the holidays? Anything that relates to IGHTS?
We are going to our 3rd Annual Lights in the Heights celebration (my 2nd post-womb). If you are in the Houston area, do you plan to go? Or do you plan to go to any of the other IGHT events? Or what IGHT events do you have near you?
Other IGHT (Light / Holiday) events in the Houston area include ...
Houston's Zoo Lights
Moody Garden's Festival of Lights
Santa's Wonderland (College Station, Texas)
Do you know of any other IGHT events?
And finally, Super Sadie ... to get you into the spirit:

I should also note that Mommy had such a terrible time getting this outfit on Sadie... so that's why she's really freaking out in this photo. Sometimes she likes (see "doesn't mind") getting dressed, and sometimes she does ...
This is sort of completely unrelated to IGHTS, but ... we think we are going to add something new to our Wednesday posts. Mommy and her friend (Sarah) started something called Starbucks Merits. Basically, they think Mommies earn and deserve free Starbucks now and again. Don't you think? I think so because when Mommy has a java drink, things are just better overall (although her drink of choice right now is a Soy Chai Latte or a Soy Peppermint Mocha). So now they are "keeping track" of when they earn Starbucks Merits. For example, Mommy feels like she earned two Starbucks Merits (which equals of course two drinks) on Tuesday because she ran a "quick" (took 10 minutes or less) errand with me and Sadie into Crave Cupcakes. Mommy said ... two arms, two babies, one car seat carrier, car keys, a monkey, and a debit card ... super easy feat no? Then she goes on "not to mention dealing with the car seats and carrying the cupcakes" (umm, Mommy, the nice Crave Cupcakes people carried them to the car.")...
So how have YOU earned a Starbucks Merit this week?
Note: This post was suppose to be written for our Wednesday post, but ... I (Max) have a lot on my plate these days! So ... Happy Thursday to everyone!
