You have to ask for the order

We are off to Tahoe in the morning. Lots of snow has fallen in the past week, and we are going to one of the areas that gets the most snow, so we should be set for many snowball fights and snowmen building. Hannah wants to build headless snowmen as she's seen in her Calvin & Hobbes books. I think that sounds fun.

I will also take Nic to downtown Truckee and we'll watch some trains go by, much like I did with Max in 2005 when we were in Tahoe during the summer and Max's magical year of cancer-free (or so we thought) life.

I so would like to be snuggling with Max in his bed right now. Just in case 'ol St. Nick is reading this, you may bring us Max for Christmas. We haven't given away any of his important stuff, and he has all his clothes still here. Just want to make sure you knew that. Though it might sound obvious, I wanted to make sure my wishes are clear. Bring us Max back.

Okay...you succeeded and made me cry....boy do I want your wish to Santa to come true.
Have fun in the snow....one of God's marvelous miracles...there are no two snowflakes alike...just like us humans...Max was one of a kind.
Merry Christmas....xo Linny

I,too, would like your wish to come true. One thing I know is that Max's little spirit will be there with you... laughing, playing in the snow and no doubt making the biggest snow balls ever!... And who better to make the perfect snow angel. We miss him, too.
Love, Nana

Oh, what we wouldn't give to grant your Christmas wish. Max-i-boy has been on my mind almost constantly the last few days. I pulled out some pictures of Max today; did you know he has about 1001 different expressions-happy,sad, goofy, grumpy, silly, serious. I got such a kick looking at all the different photos of him. Thank heavens for pictures. We will be missing you guys at Christmas and hope you have a wonderful time making headless snowmen and watching the trains go by. Love , Annee Ranee

Outside of a cure for all this crap, there isn't much I would wish for more than for your Max to come back. I know you know he's with you always, but sometimes that just isn't enough. I just hate it for you. Enjoy your time with Nic and Hannah. Maybe you could build a Max snowman so he could watch all the fun? Thinking of and praying for you everyday. Missy Morgan

Andy & family - I'm wishing for Santa to bring Max back to you guys, too. Breaks my heart to think about how difficult this holiday will be for you.

I'll be thinking of you and the kids playing in the snow. Play often!
