Happy Birthday Dear Matthew...

It is hard to believe that Matthew is now 1 year old. Our lives forever changed for the better with one phone call a year ago today! Such an incredible blessing and joy he has been to our lives. Happy first birthday buddy!! (Pictures from the his party today to come...)

12 Months Old

Contemplating who he should call with Papaw's Blackberry...
Grammy's phone is fun too...
Happy Boy!
Standing for a long time while occupied with Grammy's watch...

Matthew is 12 months (1 year!) today! He is such a happy boy. He is now standing for 10-20 seconds at a time. Likes to walk behind his walker, and is into everything as usual! Our baby is almost a toddler!

Tired and Cute Boy

This was a cute pic of Mathew tonight with his Papaw. It is so sweet when they lay their head on your shoulder...

I Want...

Notice I did not say "I need"...I really would like a new camera. My parents have the Canon Rebel EOS xsi, and I love it! With Matthew's birthday tomorrow, it will be put to good use. I have recently taken an interest in photography and photo editing, and I think a new and improved camera is on the list, as soon as the budget allows. (Notice I added that Honey!)

Valentines Dinner Party

The chocolate-oreo cheesecake I served...

We had friends over for dinner this evening. Ten adults, and seven kids 3 years and younger. What a blast! I even was brave and served spaghetti! Good times, good times...

More fun with photos...

I altered a few more photos today. I'm thinking about framing the bottom two and hanging them in Matthew's bathroom for decoration. I used the site to create the "matte" effect. I am having too much fun creating these pictures!
