Matthew this morning at breakfast said that sausage gives him a headache because he has abornation (this word he says means he has a wire in him that shocks him when he eats sausage and gives him a headache).

Not sure where that came from but wow what an imagination!

1st Day of Preschool

I know I got this post and the last post backwards but I just realized I forgot to post of his first day of preschool. He is doing great and is loving school. The first day he was going to start crying but the teacher distracted him and the second day he did great!

A Matthew Picture

At preschool, for Matthew's birthday they did a life size drawing of Matthew.

Birthday Boy

We had a big birthday celebration on Saturday for our Matthew who is now 4 years old. How can it be that he is already 4? We started the morning with breakfast at McDonalds, played a round of mini golf at Pirate's Cove and then had ice cream at DQ. After DQ, we went home and set up for his birthday party. It was a smaller crowd (58 people) than normal but I still had a hard time getting around to everyone to visit. He is one special little boy with lots of grandpas and grandmas. We love the openness of his adoption and enjoy spending time with both birth parents and their families.

Here are a few pictures of the morning.
The picture of him in his bike helmet is the picture that I used on his invitations.

Fun Night

Tonight we had a fun family night! We went to A & W for dinner (Matthew got a cute little frosty mug to use) and then played mini golf at Pirate's Cove. Matthew had a blast at mini golf but after we left he told me he was a little frightened of the pirates.

Bubbly Swim

Today we changed it up a bit and added bubbles to the pool. While he played he sang his slippery fish song and the octopus going sliding through the water. He learned the song in ECFE last school year but was afraid to sing it at school because it scared him. He sings it all the time now.

Playing in the Drawer

Yes I finally have drawers in the cabinets but no fronts yet. We keep forgetting to get screws. Plus sheet rocking last weekend was more important since I'll hopefully need an office. I have a second interview tomorrow for an awesome job. I'm really excited!
