Pictures I Love

She loves her brother.

Sometimes she squeezes him a little too tight.

Matt loves his baths

They are best friends.



We had plans to have a BBQ by the pool for my birthday, but about 4pm, we had a huge thunder/ rain storm. It was awesome, but almost put a damper on the plans. It lasted for about half an hour, then it was beautiful outside and we headed to the pool.

Sammy and Matthew looking out of the window, mesmerized by the rain.
I'm so glad they are buddies :)

Overdue post of Matthew's Birthday

I promised pictures of brand-new Matthew, so here they are...just a little late. I wanted to post them in sequential order, but they ended up completely backwards.

Bringing Matthew home

He barely fit in the car seat.

Grampy and Matt

Wonderful family photo, eh? Sammy was missing because hospital guidelines would not even allow her on the floor.

I Love Love Love this picture :)

Brand new

A few hours after the c section.

Albuquerque Trip

For 4th of July we decided to take an impromtu trip to Albuquerque. It was about a 5hr car ride and it actually wasn't that bad of a drive. Billy, Kassandra, Matt, and I rode in Billy's car and my mom, dad, and Samantha rode in my dad's truck. We stayed at Kirtland AFB and it was a terrible hotel. We went to the Albuquerque Zoo on Saturday the 3rd and that night, the town nearby, Rio Rancho put on a pretty awesome fireworks show. We came back home on the 4th.

Thanks for a great weekend uncle mark, aunt melissa, tyler, trey, and makenna. Also, thanks to my mom and dad for taking sammy and putting up with us at the creepy hotel and to kassandra and billy for letting matt and i ride in the car w/ you :)
I will post some pictures from Matt's arrival soon. I know it's a little backwards, oh well.
