Belated Merry Penguins

Matthew started saying Merry Penguins instead of Christmas when we tried to get him to say it a few weeks ago. Now it's a big joke in our house and he says Merry Penguins on purpose and laughs and we laugh and then he says it again and again. So we hope you all had a Merry Penguin!

Just a few videos and pictures of the things we did around here. What a fun break and we're just sad it's over so quickly and we are back to the grind of work already.

Opening Presents Part 1-who thought a little boy could take 2 hrs to open a few measly presents?

Matthew's cousins Abby and Drew came to visit. Matthew and Abby were 2 peas in a pod. He had a ton of fun while they were here.


Abby and Matthew boxing on our Wii-hilarious!

At the Phoenix Zoo. The kids were so excited to go! We bought a membership and Matthew is free until next Christmas-yay!



Matthew gets into these moods lately where he kisses us like we kiss him. All over. It's super cute!





I love this one that my brother-in-law took. Matthew was so good to get in and out of his stroller that day. We did a ton of walking. Too much for this pregnant lady!


At one point Matthew was walking around with his hands in his pockets. It was hilarious and about three guys that were behind us thought he was so funny!


Our "new" sweet Mexican/Chinese place to go eat. I saw it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and we had to try so Skylar and Chrissy went with us. So yummy and we can't wait to go back. We're 2 for 2 eating at recommended places from that show.




We went to the Phoenix Children's Museum on the 2nd. Pretty fun and I thought about getting a membership, but it's too far to do that yet. Matthew loved putting these balls into this tube like thing that forced air through it and they would go all around and then pop out randomly. He could have done this for 2 hrs.

This was also taken at the Children's museum. They had about 500 or so water noodles hanging from the ceiling that you could walk through. Matthew loved this even though he was reluctant at first to go with Jordan. Unfortunately he was being silly and knocked the camera out of my hand right after this and the lens is broke so now we have to get a new camera. Not what I want to be buying right after Christmas....ergghhh...

Great stuff!! Looks like Penguins was a great success! We had a lot of fun with ours too.

Oh and April and I love watching Triple D! Makes you want to go out and try all sorts of new places.

Sounds like so much fun! Hyatt is totally into giving us a million kisses a day too. I had to finally have him kiss his finger and I'd kiss my finger and we could then touch fingers because I got so tired of bending down when he wanted a kiss. He's the loviest kid I have.
