Matthew's Party

Matthew got some help from James to blow out all 19 candles.  I don't think that was really needed, but it made James happy so Matthew obliged.  What a great big brother!

I look like I'm ready to get Matthew with the spatula if he missed
any candle wax, but actually there were just a lot of people
eager for some cake :)

Gift time is always fun!  A journal from his siblings and some pilot related shirts from Mom and Dad among other things :)

Then it was time for bowling.
This was Matthew's first chance to bowl with
his right arm for quite a while.

Matthew got to wear one of his new shirts, but it didn't seem
to help his bowling.  None of us got much more than 100, but
we had a great time together :)

Happy Birthday Matthew!

Today is Matthew's 19th birthday!

Though we will officially celebrate tomorrow when
we can all be there, his two professional photo bombers
would like to encourage everyone to wish him a happy birthday:)

Happy Birthday, Emily!

Happy 24th birthday, Emily!!!
After a morning of working:  cleaning, teaching group class, etc., 
Emily headed out with Christopher and Kristin for 
a birthday lunch courtesy of her brother.

Obviously he's not quite right, but he was paying so they
took him anyway.  Brother Jonathan even chipped in the use
of his wheels since there wasn't another vehicle available.

Beautiful spring flowers provided by Dad!
What a dad!!!

Then it was gift time ;)
That's always fun!

Kristin and Matthew had to discuss how to best
fit 24 candles on the cake.

Fun pic with Helena and Dad :)

The cake was courtesy of Kristin and turned out just beautifully!
Was it good?
Oh my yes!!!
Happy Birthday Emily!
We love you!!!!
