Happy Birthday Matthew!

Guess who is turning 7 today?! I guess I gave it away in the title. Matthew is the oldest son of Dennis' daughter Kim and her husband Ryan.

I got to see him last December when we met them at their time share in Newport Beach, since I can't go to Utah. He is such a sweet, polite boy. We took them all to dinner that night and he rode in the backseat of our car. We were talking back and forth and then it was quiet. After a pause in conversation Matthew said, "Grandpa Shelley, it is so nice to see you again."

And how we love this picture.
He was only about 3 and this was taken with his siblings, Robbie and Emily.
We love you Matthew!
We have something coming in the mail just for you.

Thanks Darlene. I can see Grandpa Shelley in all his grandchildren. You know what they say...an apple doesn't fall far from its tree.

Fun day around here. We just got done with a "pirate party" with 8 little boys running around...crazy!

Those are cute photos. Thanks for sharing his special day. The one of him and Grandpa is one that I'll always treasure.

Kim :)
