Happy Birthday, Matt!

We had a fun weekend! Matt's parents came in on Saturday and stayed the weekend. Matt's dad helped install our new dishwasher, while his mom and I did some shopping and ran some errands. We had a fun day! That morning I had suprised Matt with a new LCD tv for his bday, and his parents brought him a new home theatre system with surround sound speakers. He was so excited! Once they got it all hooked up, he pulled out Top Gun and blared it at 11pm. I'm sure the neighbors were thrilled, especially after our dog barked all day. ;)

Sunday was Matt's actual bday. After church we had everyone over for some good bbq and birthday pies. Matt's not a cake eater, so he requested a pumkin pie and buttermilk pie. They were yummy!

Matt and his birthday pies...
Andrew enjoyed the Happy Birthday song. I think he was trying to figure out if everyone was singing to him. He's so sweet.

Matt got some good presents from everyone! He's the fastest present opener! I think he just couldn't wait to see what else there was. I gave him a fireman birthday card that made a siren sound when you opened it... a very loud sound... Andrew loved it!

We were sad Memere and Paw Paw couldn't come! Matt loved his bookends and matching photo album! He went right in his office and found a place for them!
Thanks for everyone for coming! Sorry, I couldn't take more pictures of everyone. My camera doesn't take pics of people very well.. everyone comes out blurry! Hopefully we'll have a new camera pretty soon, especially since we have a blog now!
