Matthew turns 5

Man, where does the time go? On Dec. 4th, Matty turned five! I swear it was just the other day that we were bringing him home from the hospital. He is getting so big and so smart that it's hard for me to realize that he's not so little any more.
He had a fun Birthday with his friends and cousins over for a party, and a dinosaur cake with roaring dinosaurs...what more could a five year old ask for.
I have always had a special bond with Matty and is so fun watching him grow. I love his funny knock knock jokes, and the way he snorts when he laughs. He is such a joy to, and we all love him so much.
We all Love you Matty!

With the Holidays upon us, it's time for traditions. One of our family traditions is making candy chains. It is very simple, and of course super fun for the kids. You just need saran wrap (I use red or green, because I'm festive like that,) ribbon, and candy. Then each day the kids get to wake up and eat a piece of candy, until Christmas day. For a twist I add a special surprise at the very top, and this is what they get on Christmas morning, usually just a big candy bar or something like that. The kids all had so much fun making them, well almost all of them, Chase about died when he realized he couldn't eat them all right away, that they were just going to hang on the wall, staring down at him. I guess he will have to get used to the once a day thing.
Now I want to know what your traditions are. You can either leave it on my comment board, or make your own post about it. It's always fun to see what other families do for fun.
