12.11.12 Matthew Turns 8!!

Yes ... he is 8!  Can you believe it?  We certainly can't!  What a difference a year makes.  Whew!  I think Matthew grew 4 inches in the past year.  We needed a whole new wardrobe when school started earlier this year.  All of his pants and sleeves were too short!

He had such a fun birthday this year.  We started off with a kid party at Vertical Endeavors.  He had recently gone with his after school program, so we knew it would be a hit.  As usual, we had blizzard to contend with on the day of the party, but all 8 kids showed up!  Amazing!

We let the kids climb for two hours, and then reserved their party room for a half hour to eat cake and open presents.  For the first time, Matthew invited a girl to his party!  His beloved Ana.  She is adorable, and Matthew just adores her.  She was such a superstar for joining these crazy boys for an afternoon.

We also held a family celebration the following weekend with both sets of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and baby Bruno (well, not such a baby anymore).  That was fun too.  Rocco taught Matthew a bunch of knock knock jokes during brunch, so I am sure he will be entertaining his class with them all week!

Happy birthday buddy!
