Matthew Update

Matthew is 2 months old now!! He is such a good boy! I feel like the luckiest mom in the world!! Matthew slept 9 1/2 hours last night!! What a good little boy! Hopefully it continues! We went to the Doctors on Wednesday and he is tall and skinny just like his dad! He is in the 25% for head (15 1/4 in.) he is 25% for weight (10lbs 7oz), and 60% (23 1/4 in) for length. He also had his shots and he was so brave and such a good boy. Later he had to take tylenol, oral vaccine, and vitamin D, and he drank all of them without any fuss!! At 7 weeks Matthew rolled over twice, but hasn't done it since. We sure love playing with this little guy--he is always so smiley and even gives us a few laughs here and there! Well, that is the latest update for Matthew! Enjoy the pictures!!

What are your easter traditions?

Now that Matthew is here, I am looking forward to starting some family traditions. Darin and I have talked about some of the things that our familys did for Easter, Darin's family did an egg hunt, and my family had to follow a piece of yarn to find our basket. My mom would also make us an Easter dress every year, and we'd get new shoes too! But I would love to hear some more ideas! So, what are your easter traditions?

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Here is a breif blog of our St. P's day food! For any of the recipes go to my food blog by clicking here.

Breakfast--clover shaped french toast. Would you believe that I have over 100 cookie cutters, and not one of them is a shamrock!? So, I had to use heart and put them together. Here is the outcome!

Lunch--Again, no shamrock cookie cutter, so I just used food coloring to die the tuna green, and painted a shamrock on Darin's bread.

Dinner--stuffed green peppers, green rice, green honeydew, and green key lime pie fruit dip!
Dessert--Again, no shamrock cookie cutter (I really need to invest in one)

Weekday Getaway to Hawaii!!!

All weekend long Darin and I kept saying that we should go to Hawaii—so Monday we did!! When Darin got home we got our plane tickets and went to our kitchen/living room Hawaii!! Here are a few of the pictures:
The family in Hawaii! Check out Matthew’s sweet Hawaiian shirt and our leas.

We had our beach towels laid out on the floor and we were going to limbo, but Chuck was on, and we had to watch Chuck—even in Hawaii!! Maybe next week we will go to China!!
