He was so funny. He would hide under our couch and just sit there watching all of us. His little nose would stick out from under the couch every once in a while. It was his safe place. He slept there most of the day. It was so cute to see his little furry nose sticking out.
Despite the potty training, he has really been a sweet little dog. He's made us laugh and brought a lot of smiles to some little girl's faces. Some fun facts about Max:
-He was born on October 29, 2009
-He is the oldest of 3 boys
-His Mom, Sadie, weighs only 3.5 lbs and his Dad, Cooper, is about the same
-We got him when he was almost 8 weeks old
-At his 8 week old vet appointment, he weighed 2.5 lbs, he is now 3.5 lbs
-He loves to attack his moose and blanket
-He loves his belly tickled. I think if he could laugh he would when we tickle him We love having him in our family!!

We woke the girls up and they were nervous because they didn't hear a dog barking. Way to cooperate Max and stay quiet!! Good dog!
After bowling we head back to Grandpa Dowdles house for dinner and the presentation of the Christmas Story. Aunt Lacey gathers all the kids and they perform, with hand puppets (made by Grandma Dowdle), the story of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Rylee was pretty excited that she was the Angel and the Star. Good job kiddos, watching these guys is always a favorite tradition of mine.
Then it's time for presents. We draw names with all of Dan's brothers and sisters and their families. Out of 7 Dowdle kids, there are only 3 that still live in Utah. This is a way that the family can be unified at Christmas even though they are scattered all over the country. We all know that somewhere out there all the other Dowdles are opening presents on Christmas Eve too!! We always love the gifts we get.
Rylee was so excited to see what she got for Christmas from Grandpa and Grandma Harris.
We mixed things up a bit this Christmas. Usually we have "Christmas" 5 times on Christmas Day, but this year my Dad worked on that day so we decided to celebrate on Christmas Eve morning with them. It was very nice and made for a more relaxing Christmas for us. Grandpa and Grandma surprised them with a karaoke machine. They all love to sing (I didn't say they sing on key, but they like to sing). They all got just what they wanted. Baylee got an iHome for her iPod, Brinley got her 3 Musketeer Barbies, and Rylee got a hospital bed for her babies. I'm loving this picture of Dr. Rylee!!
