Madd Max Has A 2nd Christmas

 Enjoying Sam's cinnamon buns.
 Max got a Slinky as a stocking stuffer.  Since the house is relatively devoid of stairs, he decided to build some to test it out.
And what 2nd Christmas would be complete without swordplay.

Madd Max Has A 2nd Christmas Eve

First, a stop at Toby's where Simon was re-introduced to the joy of dominoes.  So much so, that the boys wanted to stay longer then Sam and Jess had planned.
The boys then came home and played war games on the flip-sequin pillows - for over an hour.
Then it was over to Taisie's for a dinner party - you'll have to imagine the other guests.
 Who are on Jess' side of the couch.
 Another letter to Santa.
Who came out one more time for the kiddos.

Madd Max Heads To Universal

To show Uncle David, Taisie, Gwen and Simon a good time.
Kids pretending to be beer.  Perfection.
The studio tour.
From both sides.
Followed by a tired crew watching the first Harry Potter movie, so they could compare it to the ride.

Madd Max Is Reunited

With their cousins, who laid over in CA en route from New Zealand to Panama.
The girls quickly got back to drawing comics.
While the boys got into all the backyard sports.
A fine turkey dinner followed at Taisie's, where the adults were also reunited.

Madd Max Heads To The Rose Parade Floats

Maddie in front of her favorite float.
The floats have all sorts of cool details - like these banana chips used for the suckers on the octopus tentacles.
And tons of flower sprays.
In front of the Burbank float.
Kettle corn - something the kids enjoyed many years ago, the last time the fam visited the floats.
It was packed.
Jess' favorite float.  The darkest lines in the plaid were blueberries.  Neat.

Madd Max Has A Happy New Years Eve

When the Findleys came to pick up their girls, and then stayed for champagne, Trader Joe's appetizers and Moscow Mules.  Not bad at all.
