And Now A Matthew Moment

So the other day I asked Matthew to go get his shoes and socks on... and he did. All by himself. I am so proud that he can do that. BUT... socks and sandals!!?! I am sorry! They just don't go together. Or shouldn't. Ever! Even if they are Texas Longhorns sandals. Hello. BUT, I did not complain or make him change them. He DID do what I asked. Right?? So off to pick up Alex and the grocery store we went.
P.S. Did I tell you Matt loves his sandals? And did I tell you that after this I hid them until next summer? :)

December 2009: And its only the first two weeks!

There have only been 15 days of December so far and we haven't even gotten to the best part...Christmas!! Me and the boys have been busy the last couple of weeks. We have had so much fun. I don't want it to end. First off on Dec. 4th, Matthew, had a "white" birthday! Matt had snow on his bday!! It was super fun and cold day. We made soup and sang to Matt and gave him his present. The next day was his party where the celebration continued. No snow the next day though. It just stuck around long enough for the boys to play in it and make a snowman.
Matthew celebrated his birthday at Kids in Action in Kingwood. He picked a SpongeBob theme. It was a fun party. After the cold and wintery day on Friday, Saturday turned out to be sunny and nice out. Made his party day fun!! He loves being four! And he has been celebrating every day. He doesn't know quite yet that his birthday is only one day in December not the whole month. He is still going around saying its his birthday. :)
After church on the 6th since the boys were already dressed up we drove on down to the mall to take a picture with Santa. They boys couldn't wait to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas. It turned out to be a really fun day. We had lunch and did some shopping. My sister was here and she got to hang out with us and watch the boys take their pic. It was a great day. This is a picture we took with our camera. The one we bought came out great. The boys had super cute smiles. Here they look like they are trying to hard to smile. Lol! And like they aren't very excited.
Both the boy are involved in a children's choir called the Sonshine Kids at church. They perform musicals at Christmas and Easter time. This year they performed the Legacy of Love. It was Alex's first speaking part and singing solo and Matthew's first time to participate in SKs. It was awesome!! Alex did GREAT!! Their cousins Maddie and Preston and our Goddaughter, Gabi are also in Sonshine Kids. We had a blast practicing and getting ready for the show. All the kids did a great job!! We celebrated our performance with a party and hayride!
Just this passed weekend we went to San Antonio. We had season passes that were about to expire so Me, Kevin, and the boys went for our last hurrah! It was the best day. The park was decorated for Christmas. All the shows were new with a Christmas theme. The park was empty! We did not wait for a thing! The weather was perfect. Not hot at all!! We had a blast!! It was a fun relaxing weekend.
Coming up we have Matthew's Christmas program at school, Alex has Polar Express day at school, both boys have Christmas parties, then we are off to Natchitoches, LA for a fun weekend with family. Natchitoches is were Steel Magnolias was filmed. We love it there. I have not been since I was pregnant with Alex! They have a huge Christmas festival. I can't wait. Then next week is Christmas. Wow!! Time is flying. I hope that you and yours are enjoying the Christmas season.

And Now A Matthew Moment

Here's a story about a boy named Matthew who was really mad that his soccer game was after his brother's. He sighed, and whined, and threw himself around and was ignored by his mother. Til' the one time he decided to lay under his Pa's chair, and pee by a tree, well that's when this became a Matthew Moment. That this boy could be so silly, thats the way this became a Matthew Moment!

The Frogs Go Green

Last weekend on Halloween, one of the moms from Matthew's soccer team the Frogs brought green hairspray for the boys to put in their hair. The boys thought it was super fun. Even Alex got in on it. The funny part is that even though Braedan's mom was the one to bring the hairspray he did not want to put any in his hair. :) The Frogs are too cute! I have really enjoyed watching them play together. They are so sweet. Go Frogs!

Tszujed it!

Urban Dictionary defines "tszuj":


In the fashion world, it means to make something better, generally by tweaking or quirking it to better fit what it's supposed to do both functionally and artistically. It's become most popular due to its frequent use on the hit Bravo show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, usually by their fashion guru Carson Kressly. It is very hard to pronounce, and even harder to spell, many times often misspelled 'jujj' or 'jooj'. Pronounced "zhuj", by the way.
Carson: "Just tszuj it a little, and you're set!"
I first heard this word when I obsessively watched Queer Eye for the Straight Guy each week back in the day. The Fab Five were so fun to watch. Kinda miss that show. Anyway. Carson Kressley used to "tszuj" and say "tszuj" all the time. I now love the word and say it all the time! Have passed it off to a few friends who also say the word now, too. Wink.
I have been doing a little tszujing here at home this week. I found some fabric to recover my dining room chairs. The ones I had before were so dirty and needed a little tweaking. Love them so much better now! Then I also added a letter P that I spray painted and put on a wreath that I already had. I think they all went from totally geek to totally chic.
Here are a few pics!
Chair before.

Chair after.

Added the P.

Pumpkin Carving 2009

Carving pumpkins is always big fun!!

I'm just saying...

I am another year older today. And though it is fun to think of this day as special and receive gifts and loving words from family and friends. It also brings sadness. I feel...well older. And closer to 40. And well thinking of that number scares me. I don't feel 37. Eeek. I said it out loud. I don't. And then I start thinking that Matt will be 4 and Alex 7 and I start to think about how fast time goes by. I have kids not babies anymore and a husband with gray hair. Ha. Shh! Don't tell him I said that. The years are flying by. And if I am, eh hem, 37 then my parents are, well getting older, too. And well the whole thought of time, age, and how fast it all goes by makes me sad! Ugh. Just want to cry. I know I should just grab the bull by the horns and enjoy each day and second. But, when you stop and think about it, it is just so overwhelming. I don't know how to make it stop or slow down. Waaaaahhhhh!

I'm just saying!

Matt (from the other room): Yes!
Me: OK, come on then.
Matt (entering the kitchen NAKED!): I want to carve it like this.
Kevin: Matt, NO! You can't do it naked.
Matt: Yes.
Me and Alex: Ha, ha, he, he. He's naked.
Kevin: Matt go put on your clothes.
Matt: FINE!
Me and Alex: Ha, ha, he, he!

And Now A Matthew Moment

A little convo I had with Matt on Tuesday after I picked him up from school.

Me: Hey, Matt! How are you?
Matt: Fine.
Me: How was your day?
Matt: Good.
Me: Did you eat all your lunch?
Matt: Yes.
Me: What did you eat?
Matt: You made it.
Me: Well. What did you do at school today?
Matt: Stuff.

Nice. That's my little "man" of few words!! :/

Back for a Second Round

This year Matthew is going to be Peter Pan for Halloween. My mom made it for Alex when he was 3. He loved Peter Pan that year and so my mom made this costume for him. This year Matt's bringing Peter back. He loves it because he has a dagger. I love it because it is all here and ready to use!! No work for me! We love Halloween!

Alex as Peter Pan

Matthew as Peter Pan
He is loving the dagger. :/
