When they arrived last Saturday, it also happened to be Matthew's 8th birthday. If you remember one of my last "normal" posts before surgery, Georgia helped me decorate and get ready for their arrival. Of course, Georgia manages to turn someone else's birthday into an opportunity for her to get gifts. She was beyond excited to inherit some Thomas the tank engine trains and tracks from her big cousins...

I was under a lot of pressure to come up with a good idea for Matthew's birthday gift since I had an original idea for his brother's birthday earlier in the year. Thank goodness for Pinterest! We came up with a fun idea of how to present some money to the birthday boy...

We had to cap off the birthday with some time by the firepit since Nick had approximately 4,000 trees delivered to our house that week!

Matthew and Nathan taught Georgia how to brush her teeth like a champ every night before bed and then they would take turns reading to her before bedtime...
Luckily, we were able to hit up a few museums and spend some time in DC before I was admitted to the hospital. Stay tuned!
