Happy Birthday Matt & Texans in the Playoffs

Yesterday was Matt's birthday.. Happy Birthday MATT! Saturday we had a birthday party/Texans football watching party. We got up on Saturday and got the house ready for our guest and enjoyed the nice spring.. Oppss I mean winter day (Sunny and high of 80 degrees..) It was so nice that while playing out in the back yard, we heard the ice cream truck and went running. The kids sat on the back porch with their ice cream and shorts enjoying the afternoon. And as traditional as Texas winter goes, I was wearing shorts on Saturday, and now a sweater today.
For the party we had Matt's parents, my brother and sister in law, and 3 other families joined us. We had lots of food and fun. The kids had a blast playing with all their friends in the playroom and outside. 11 kids and minimal fights about toys.. The evening was a success! The game was also great, it was the first times the Texans have made the playoffs and they won their first playoff game.. Yeah. As soon as the last guest left, the kids were passed out in our bed.

Sunday was a lazy day after Saturday's excitement. Katherine and I worked on her school project. We had to make a snow person and write sentences about what we used. "Olivia" snow baby turned out great! Katherine decorated her, I was just in charge of the hot glue gun.. Katherine tried to convince me that she could use the hot glue gun, but she did not win that argument!
Also Colin got a much needed haircut! They cut about 2 inches off.. I love his white hair and have kept it longer, like the little surfer boy he is, but it just got TOO LONG and hard to manage. I am really happy with his new do, plus it makes him look older!
Yesterday was Matt's real birthday… it flooded in Houston and we had tornadoes.. So we had a low key dinner at home followed by some cake and watch the National Championship game. Matt is truly my best friend and I am so grateful to share this life with him. He's a wonderful husband, a great father, and an amazing person. I look forward to many many more birthdays with him.. Okay enough of the sappiness.
