Matt's Birthday

Our baby turned 4 today.  He woke up crying and saying, "I don't want to be 4!"
With turning four comes preschool and that is a scary thought to him.  However, as the day progressed he had a good time and got used to the idea.

Morning doughnuts
Don't laugh....this was my attempt at a Spiderman cake.

I could not for the life of me get that icing to turn red....only hot pink.  And don't even ask about the webbing....
(You're laughing, aren't you?) 

After dinner he requested a game of family kickball.

The name Matthew means "Gift of God".  Your Mom and Dad sure see you that way.  We love you Matthew James.  Happy Birthday!
