Happy New Year to All!
I hope every one's holiday was happy and safe. We got back from the Duda yesterday in time to celebrate Mattie May's fourth birthday! WOW! I can't believe she is already four! It was hard to believe that yesterday it had been four years since we had been at the hospital watching University of Texas win the national championship! Four years since they told us we would have to wait one more day because Katie wasn't quite ready to deliver! Four years since Mattie May decided she wanted to be born on Kauy's birthday! It was a day of unexpected happenings, laughter, and tears.
We had a great time last night celebrating with a small gathering of just Mattie May, her parents and both sets of grandparents. She wanted to eat at Mr. Gatti's so we all met there, ate, watched a movie, played games, and had cake. It was very nice and relaxing. Katie and Buddy will be having a party for her later. It probably won't even be this month because it is going to be outside and it needs to be a bit warmer for the activities, but it is what Mattie May wanted to do.
If you notice my countdown clock up above with Minnie and Mickey Mouse, you will notice it has finally dropped below 365 days! Next year for Mattie May's birthday, we will be flying to Florida to spend some time at the Magic Kingdom! We will be having breakfast with Mickey, dinner with the Princesses, and Mattie May will be transformed into an actual princess! She is so excited! She loves the princesses, but I don't know what we will do if she doesn't get to see the fairies! Almost everything she got this Christmas had TinkerBelle and her friends on it!
The day she was born, Frank whispered in her little ear that we were going to DisneyWorld when she was five! I can't believe it is already a year away. Time to really start planning! We may have to miss some tournaments this year to save for it! LOL! We haven't really decided on dates, so the time on that calendar will probably change, but it's close enough right now!
I hope to get some pictures posted from the holidays soon. The past two weeks have just been so busy that I have neglected that one chore. Will get them posted soon!
