Mommy Wow....

....I'm a big boy now! I almost forgot another very important event that happened in our house. Matthew is completly potty trained!!! It was a rough road but we made it and we are all very happy for no more diapers!!

Happy Halloween




Matthew decided to be a dump truck driver just like Papa for Halloween this year. So we got him an orange shirt and gave him a beard and got out the safety vest. He thought he was pretty cool and he had lots of fun Trick or Treating and seeing all the Jackity Lanterns(as Tigger says). Overall we had a great Halloween!

Pumpkin Patch





We finally made it to the pumpkin patch this year, it was a little late in the evening but Matthew had a blast. We picked out our pumpkins and he even got to ride in the bounce house. He loves jumping, he could jump for hours if we let him. Now if only we got those pumpkins carved, oh well. Happy Fall!

Happy Birthday Chance!







Wow Chance had a fun little birthday party, complete with a tractor cake made by me(very much fun) and a great little cupcake tower! Happy Birthday Bud, We love you!!!

Halloween Cookies with Friends

My friend Stacy from work watched Matthew for me one day and she brought her sister Emily along for fun. Matthew had a great time with them and after I got home from work we all made some really fun Halloween cookies together. Thanks Stacy for a fun afternoon.






Do the Puyallup
















So I know it's been a terribly long time since my last post: oral surgery, illness and life gets in the way some time. So be prepared for some good catch up posts. We were able to take Matthew to the Puyallup fair this year for the first time. A couple characters from his favorite show The Backyardigans were going to be there so we made the time to go. Matthew had a blast seeing Pablo and Tyrone, riding the rides was very exciting for him also. It was a great time and Matthew is already looking forward to going next year.

Trouble Brewing


So Matthew has discovered markers, can you tell?

Fun Boy

Wow, what big feet you have! Matthew loves to play with Daddy's slippers.


I love this little munchkin, he always has a way to make me smile.

Matthews New Friend

Yeah, we love the trampoline, especially with great friends!

Uncle Tys Helper

Matthew loves to help Uncle Ty works on his truck. Even if he has to stay at a distance and just watch he wants to be involved in it all. Matthew had to stop and look for Papa
Yeah, we're done!


Matthews Photography Skills

Matthew loves to play with my camera, sometimes I let him take a couple pics and othertimes I'll find random ones from the sneaky little guy. Check out his self portrait and the other ones where pictures of the sun:)

Wilton Cake Class

I took a cake decorating class last month and had lots of fun learning new things. Here are some pictures of my creations.
My final cake, can you tell Matthew liked it:)

5th of July

While Kasey was here we got to spend a day in Seattle and go to a Mariners game. Matthews favorite thing at the game was watching the trains. He kept telling us that he was lookin for Thomas.
Matthew loves Uncle Chancey

Jason and I had the stroller up at the top of our section, Matthew came back and forth to us, but whenever he heard the train whistle he had to see it. Luckily Papa was close enough so Matthew could see the trains from his seat.


On our way back to the cars after Matthew went up the "Space Noodle" with Kasey and Marissa.
Lunch on the waterfront.

We got to go the Moose Den and take a picture with him, Matthew thought that was pretty cool.
Watch this video: Matthew is trying to find Thomas.

4th of July

We had lots of fun on the fourth. Even though I had to work for a little bit the day was fun. My sister and her friend Marissa were here and we all had a blast. We had a bbq at my parents house and then watched the boys do some fireworks until Matthew had enough or maybe it was mommy who had enough:) and we drove up to the fairgrounds and watched the firework show there(where we could keep munchkin a bit more contained and away from the flames:)) Julia is so awesome with Matthew, he had so much fun throwing pop its with her or as he called it making fireworks.
Matthew loved having everyone push him around on his trike, Kasey jokingly told him that hit was her turn little did she know Matthew would have a helper pushing her across the yard. Matthew kept telling her she needed to put her feet on the pedals.


Ok, so the sparklers we had sucked but that didn't stop them from trying. Matthew loves his Auntie Kasey.

Night, Night, Time


Matthew was quietly playing in his bedroom a couple weeks ago and this is what I went in to find. He was putting every single one of his stuffed animals down for a nap. The things he comes up with are just so cute.

Zoo Pics

Ok I know these are way behind but, better late than never heh? This guy had a tarantula...eeeww
Matthew and Daddy loved the fish

We got to see the wildlife show too, which was lots of fun

Matthew really liked the tigers
