Blizzard 2010

Leo claims he is still okay having not bought a snow blower, but in this photo it looks like the thought might be crossing his mind.

Max is supervising pappa's work from the warm comfort of his bedroom:

Leo has been busy expanding our shed so that we have enough space to store all the tools he bought in order to expand our shed.

Luckily, he got as far as finishing the roof and a few walls before the blizzard started.

As if there wasn't reason enough already

The day before closing on our house there was a lot of commotion going on in the apartment above our temporary place. At one point a hot water heater tank was removed, carpets were taken out, lots of random, annoying noise was happening, but it was over with in a few hours--not too bad. Or so I thought.

The next day, we noticed a growing spot on the ceiling:

Also, the carpet near that wall was nice and wet. Turned out whatever problem happened upstairs dribbled down to us. So our last days in that paradise included lovely fans and dehumidifiers and men poking holes in the walls:
Thank goodness we pushed so hard for a quick closing so we didn't have to spend a moment longer in that mess!

Home improvement #1

We moved in yesterday- the place is a disaster, boxes everywhere, but we really like the house. Mr. Max seems to like it here too, he slept 11 hours straight. Home improvement #1 is complete: gates installed at both ends of the stairs.

Done deal. We're home owners. We did a final walk-through of the house, then spent a few hours at the lawyers signing papers and arguing with the bank.

Now that Mr. Maximillian is one year old, he tried ice cream for the first time. He was very suspicious, but seemed to want more.

Why did Max sleep all the way home?

Maybe because he ran a marathon in the terminal before our flight home.
