Earlier in the year, Davy asked me when I was going to make him a quilt. I didn’t think he was really serious about it except that he then asked me several more times throughout the summer and the fall. So, I decided to make him one for his birthday. The next question was what pattern would I do? After weeks of looking at patterns and thinking about the colors, Davy and I were shopping for some fall fabric when he asked me if he could pick out some fabrics for his quilt. It then became a hodge podge of colors and patterns and that’s when it hit me….I’ll make it the same as Andy’s! One day I will make Matty a quilt too and I love knowing that all three, although different colors, will still look the same. The fabric’s that I used were ones that he picked out, I picked out, a few from Andy’s quilt that I made as a wedding gift 10 years ago, and even a crib sheet of his that has sharks on it. It shouldn’t be surprising that he picked the green backing, but I did pick the star quilting pattern. He loved his quilt and that makes my heart melt.
It’s Davy’s birthday, and although his party is next weekend we couldn’t wake up today and not celebrate his big day. He woke up this morning on the little bed and found a present at his feet. He and Matty tore into it and found an entire geocaching kit. His others gifts which he found on the table were a quilt made by me, plastic blow bubbles from Matty, a bean bag game from granny, and a $100 bill. Aunt Brandie and Uncle Laurence spent the night too, so for breakfast we ate cream cake and sang Happy Birthday.
Matty loves to bounce, so this year we decided to have his birthday party at “The Bounce House” over on Linebaugh near Westchase. What is perfect about this bounce house location is the large indoor jungle gym that it has. It is perfect for 4 year olds. The theme of Matty’s party was Chuggington, a cartoon train character on the Disney channel. He loves trains. About 20 of his little friends came out to help him celebrate his birthday. He had a wonderful time.
We couldn’t have little Matty’s birthday go by without celebrating with his friends at school. He was so excited when I arrived at school, and as we set the tables his little shy side set in. All I wanted was to squeeze him and make him smile. We sang happy birthday, he blew out his candle, and we all cheered. I can’t believe my baby is 4…
Matty and Jay Alvarez…
Our little boy turns 6 today!!! Davy woke up this morning to find a big present in his bed…a new Razor scooter. Since his party is Phineas and Ferb, it just seemed so fitting to buy a themed scooter for him. The scooter was the perfect gift because in the last couple of weeks he has picked up riding the scooter more and more, and his old one was rusted from being left outside over night. Matty also thought of a gift for Davy, a new battery for his Jeep. The two of them hopped in and took off down the driveway this morning…so cute. For breakfast I made him chocolate chip pancakes and sent him to school with a full belly.
Although we celebrated at school yesterday and his party is coming up this weekend, I didn’t want his actual day to be too overlooked…so I asked him what he wanted to do and he said, “Oh, I know…how about a Root Beer Float Party!” That we can do. After dinner we invited the neighbors over and sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to our beautiful boy… So proud of him!
