Madd Max Head To Greta's Party

 Where there were wigs.
 And scavenger hunts.
 And tents - birthday girl down right.
And a baby brother, Emmett, that Max really dug, shown here with his Grandmother, and one of Taisie's best friends, Lea.

Madd Max Does Not Head To The Grammys

 But Jess and Aarin did.
 Courtesey of the Findleys - Drew is in charge of about half of the video content for the artists in the show.
 Nothing like black tie McDonalds c/o the Staples Center.
 Our phat box seats complete with food.
 And our view.
And how to know you're super famous.  This is John Legend's set, spotlight on him.  And spotlight on Jay-Z and Beyonce - why?  Because they are watching him.

Madd Max Have MLK Day Off

So they celebrated with some bowling with Bill and Aeryn.
Maddie explained to us that Martin Luther King Jr made people be nice to each other.  Also, that he would have wanted her brother to share that toy with her.

Madd Max Has A 1st Monthly Big Adult Game Night

 Pot luck. 
 No kiddos (who happily headed to their Grandparents for a sleep-over).
And Sam's speciality cocktail.
For clarity, this is the description.
Pan-Galatic Gargle Blaster:
Aka Miserable Disaster
1. Fill glass with ice
2. Top with PG GB aka MD
3. Blend it up
4. Spit it out
5. Get something else

 What could cause this look of confusion?
 And then surprise?
Steve's birthday, of course!  And the announcement of Leonhardt baby #3!  Yay!

Madd Max Goes To The Griffith Observatory

Madd Max Ride The Moving Sidewalk

For an hour or so during the return trip layover - 3 days after the original anticipated return.
Max was wearing a Superman shirt during the travel, and had numerous adults say to him, "Hi, Superman!" His response to each one was, "Do you know I'm not the real Superman?"

Madd Max Gets Ready To Head Out

 With some cookie making.
And train playing.

Madd Max Rides The Carousel

 On a -17 degree with windchill day. 
 Maddie actually fell down outside, and was upset not by the fall, but by the fact that she had to take her hands out of her pockets to break it (and then they were freezing).
Followed by some cousin sliding down the steps.

Madd Max Go To The Museum Of Natural History

To make lemonade out of the delay, Mimi took the fam to Jess' favorite museum.  And above, her favorite hall.
 Maddie was very proud that she was not scared of anything.
 Huge dinosaurs.
Then it was over to the cousins' for some engineering.

Madd Max Does Not Return To LA

 After returning from the airport, which was in chaos from the storm, a happy, big shoe dance was preformed in celebration of the fact that the fam would be delayed in Leonia for 3 more days.
Then a serious game of checkers commenced.

Madd Max Reunite The Baby Star

But first, a visit to "The Amazing Max," followed by lunch in the city.
Then it was over to Tante's for some gaming.
And dress-up.
Mateo's selfie.
And for those of you who need a reminder of the baby star - here it is.  Lucia, Aiden and Max were all born 29 days of each other.  Here they are at 4 months.  To see a video of the baby star at 9 months, click here.
And the baby star at 4 years!

Madd Max Brave The Snow

4-6 inches were dumped overnight.
Which inspired Sam and the kiddos to shovel.  Jess was not so inspired.
Once inside, there was some toy play.
"Frozen" watching.
Spot-it playing.
Shaking it.
And Tio Greg piling.
