Birthday Pictures

These first two pictures are Matthew opening Spike the Ultra Dinosaur

Holding up his new jeans

His stuffed dinosaur from Alex

Mommy's try at making an airplane cake, in case you don't get it the yellow cupcakes are the runway lights and the white cupcakes are smoke. Matthew loved the cake and I will be making another one for his friend party on Saturday.

We Have a Birthday in the House!!!!

Matthew is 5 years old today and he is so excited!!! This morning when he woke up he came into our room and I could hear him chanting "I am 5, I am 5" he did this over and over for a few minutes. It was very cute!!!!

In honor of his 5th birthday here are 5 things I love about my boy:

1. His sweet, sensitive side
2. His love for his brother and sister
3. His love for his friends
4. He's compassionate side
5. His love for school and learning

I will post pictures after the celebration with family tonight.

The kids had a great day yesterday, got what they asked for and more. We actually had to do Round 2 of clean out the playroom (I had already cleaned it out about a month ago in preparation). We will have Round 3 of Christmas tomorrow when Aaron's parents arrive. Then on Monday Matthew will be turning 5 so a new round of gifts will be headed his way.

Tent Time

While Mommy and Alex were at a volleyball tournament on Saturday Daddy was in charge of the boys so he set up the tent in the living room for them. They loved it! They watched a movie from the tent.

A Little Snow

We got a little bit of snow one day last week and of course the boys had to go outside and "play" in it.

PreK Christmas Program

Matthew's class along with another PreK class and 2 of the 3 year old classes put on a little christmas program for us. The PreK kids got to choose to be either and angel or a shepherd and as you can see Matthew chose to be an angel. I'm not sure if he was more excited about singing or the fact that Daddy took a half day off work to come and see him sing.

7th Grade Holiday Dance

Alex's school had a Holiday Dance last night. Here are some pictures of her and her date Will. She is looking a little too grown up for me in these pictures.

Christmas Tree Decorating

We decorated our tree on Friday and the boys had a great time. This was the first year Ryan could really participate and he was so excited to see all the different type of ornaments we have.

Thanksgiving Feast

Matthew's class had a Thanksgiving Feast on Tuesday, I got to sneak away from my class for a little bit so I could snap a few photos. Matthew was so excited to have me in his class with him. The boys got to choose to be either a pilgrim or an Indian and as you can see Matthew was a Pilgrim.

Trip to the Zoo

Ryan and I went to the zoo with some friends and he had a blast. He really enjoyed seeing the penguins.

Picture with Santa

The boys and I went to the mall today so they could pick out their ornament for this year. Every year I take the kids to Hallmark so they can pick out a new ornament for the tree, it's always fun to see what they'll choose. This year Ryan chose Buzz Lightyear, Matthew choose Little Einstein's Rocket and Alex got Tinkerbell.

As we were eating lunch the boys saw Santa and said they wanted to go talk to him so they could tell him what they wanted for Christmas, I was quite surprised by this since last year they wouldn't even go near him. So, after we finished eating we walked over and they both walked right up to Santa told them what they wanted and then sat on his lap for a picture. They are no wearing the clothes I would have chosen but I thought it best to let them go since they were willing. Here's the pic of them on Santa's lap.

Boys can do laundry... and I have the proof

The boys were in the laundry room with me when I started to put clothes into the dryer and they wanted to help. Well, they ended up doing all of it. I will keep these pictures handy for when they tell their wives they don't know how to do laundry:)

Trick or Treat

We made our annual trip out to Frisco to go Trick or Treating in Pacaw's neighborhood. Matthew kept asking when we were going to go and when we finally started he got about 20 minutes into it and said he was done. I think Ryan could have trick or treated all night.

Here are Buzz Lightyear and Woody in front of Pacaw's house before hitting the neighborhood



Alex had her last volleyball game on Thursday, they won!!!! I tried to get an action shot but could never quite time it right.
