I’ve been posting a poem for each of my children on their birthdays this year. I have two more to go – I hope I can do it! 🙂 However, I have failed to share photos of two birthdays for our family who read my blog. I am catching up now! 🙂 Both children received cards and some cash from loved ones, but I don’t have time to share all the photos. Maybe on another “catch up” post?
First, Leslie Anne. She turned seven on May 17, 2012. Her poem can be found HERE. Here are some photos of her party:
She requested this fairy Barbie cake from a bakery. It was not decorated as nicely as it should have been, but we didn’t complain. It tasted very good! She loves Barbie these days! 🙂
Laci, Mitch and Leslie with her gifts. I do not understand Mitchell’s expression here. And please don’t ask me why Laci is wearing her bathrobe over her clothes. I’m only her mother.
Aunt Melanie knitted this lovely purse for Leslie!
Mitchell bought these gifts for Leslie. He was so excited to spend his own money on his sister. 🙂
From Mom and Dad: Barbie! A doll, a case and clothes!
The group. Laci lost the robe (thank goodness). The kids bought Leslie these cute Barbie shades.
Next up, Matthew Ron. His birthday was a few days ago, on July 14th. He is two now! His poem is HERE.
Here are some photos of his party:
His early morning birthday gift from Mom and Dad. We couldn’t wrap it, so we just…gave it to him! 🙂
He wasn’t picky about his cake at all! 😉 I bought the Winnie the Pooh decoration at the store, and decorated it myself.
Here’s the top view.
Me and Matt with his cake. 🙂
He is a very neat eater!
This year, we took a short video of him blowing out his candle. It’s not very clear, it was with our camera, but it’s better than nothing. I usually just photograph them as they blow out the candle, and usually miss the moment. This was better than missing it. Ignore my hick southern accent, please! 🙂
Leslie picked out this puzzle to give him.
Matt found these old keys and tried to “start” his tricycle!
A very happy two year old!

Leslie has really grown up since the last time we saw her! Can't believe Matthew is 2 already. Love the pictures. They sure grow up fast!
I LOVE her toothless grin! We bought Abby a trike for her birthday this year too.So cute to see them wheeling around. (and btw, I think that you did a better job decorating then the bakery did :P)
I loved your hick accent. Lord knows I probably sound worse than you. LOL! My daughter Leah will be 7 this Sunday. She's liking Barbie these days too. Happy Birthday to all your kiddos.
P.S. I think it's sweet you are writing a poem for each child.
