A few months ago Max was asked to be a Crown Bearer at his Aunt Bug's prom. He was so excited. He attended the first practice and he did really well. All the way home he couldn't stop talking about the "pretty girls that would be there in their princess dresses" and that he couldn't wait to show them his "kickin' dance moves."
On Prom night we got Max all ready to go and he thought he LOOKED GOOD! In his words he looked like James Bond. He was loving the fact that he was James Bond.

He started to get a little too excited and pulled out some 007 moves so Nana had to help him get put back together.

Here he is waiting for his debut

He made it! He was standing by the princesses! He was doing great while he had something in his hands...

They took his flowers and in his words, "I got a little nervous."

He is trying to hold it together.

Still holding,

Oh man! He is losing it...

I don't know if you can tell but in this picture he is "THE HULK." Apparently when Max gets nervous he turns into a Super Hero. He was The Hulk, and then Spider-man, he even threw out a Wolverine. I thought I was going to die....all these parents were taking pictures of their beautiful kids and my son is posing as a Super Hero in every single one!

On our way home...after many, many comments from giggling parents my husband asked Max what he was thinking.

Max's reply: "I started to get a little nervous, everyone was looking at me."

Charlie then asked Max why did he kept doing it.

Max: "Well, they all kept laughing at me!"
(Like why wouldn't I stop-I had 'em eating out of my hands.)

I soon discovered that the picture the Lovell Chronicle used for the Royalty was one of Max really "Hulking." We were famous for a few days. I got all sorts of questions and comments from giggling people everywhere we went.
I thought I'd throw in a few pictures of Lauren and my Dad during the Royalty Dance...the whole reason for this fiasco!

Gotta love kids! They are so darn cute!
I can't believe how grown up and gorgeous Lauren is! It makes me feel kind of old. :)

I think I just might have to steal Max! He is the most hilarious boy I have ever met! I just sat here and laughed the whole time I was reading your blog. I will have to tell you a funny story about him at the fireworks the other night. Such a cute little guy!
