Happy Birthday to the kiddos! January 3 is a very special day for our family, we celebrate two birthdays! No, not really twins, but two kids that think the world of each other.
Oldest first - Kauy Paul born January 3, 2001. Special in so very many ways, but the first that comes to my mind is that he is "the man". He is the only boy that has been born into our family. He is part of Mattie B's fourth generation, and the only male for 64 years! He hates it when I call him "little man" but until he is taller than me (which, knowing his dad, won't be for long) that is what I will call him. But to one very special little girl, he will always be "Uncle Kauy" (that is what he wants her to call him and none of us are going to tell him any different).
Mattie May was born January 3, 2006. She is the first in many ways; the first of Mattie B's fifth generation, Katie's first daughter, our first granddaughter, and first great granddaughter to my mom and dad. For two years she has brought such joy to our lives. The first thing anyone notices about her are those big, beautiful blue eyes. As she grows older they become more expressive and her best asset. She is such a good little girl that is always learning. And Kauy says she is the best birthday present yet.
