I became the proud Mom of
Matthew Allen.
Matthew means a gift from God and Allen is after my
very favorite Uncle in the world (although all my uncles are special).
Matthew weighed 7lb 120z.
Little did I know that 18 yrs later he would be
6'5" tall and 205lbs.
He has made me so proud through all these years. He is a great student in school.
He has played about every sport in the world and done great.
He is the best son, and the BEST brother to Jaden.
I lost 2 babies before Matthew was born so when he came along it was so special.
Matthew , we all love you. You have made us all proud and you are fixing to be going on a new adventure in the world of College. I know you will do well, and I know you will make us all proud.
All your Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and family all love you!
Happy Birthday SON!

6 weeks old. He had a head full of hair from day 1.
Age 2

Age 3

18, OMG! Did I say 18.

6'5" tall

I love you son and you make me proud.
Stay the way you are in life and you will reach all your dreams.

Did I ever tell you all....

How much I love the game of Baseball. Especially when my boys are playing.
Matthew had his 1st game of the season yesterday. It was about an hour drive south. So I picked Jaden up at school, we set the navigation system and hit the road. It was a beautiful day in the high 70's. Matthew didn't think he would pitch, but guess what? Yes he went in to close the game. Pitched the last inning and threw to 3 player and was about to strike all 3 of them out. It was good for him since we have had all these arm problems. He felt good and loved to go out and show how good he feels.
I was so proud.
Game 2 today.
Have a good week.

Matthew is #23. This is after the game.
I would love to know what he was thinking!


These are the days I will miss. Jaden is always Matt's biggest fan. Of course we hope
we get that chance in College!!!

"Hey Mom, now that is cool. Think I will be able to ride that when I
play for Siegel High School?"

Snow in Tennessee & Basketball

We got about 4-5 inches of snow overnight. The further south you are the more you got. I woke up at 6am and looked out and never went back to sleep. I am like a big kid when it snows. I love it. I wished it would have snowed 2 feet!
It was a pretty snow. It stuck to everything.
Enjoy the pics.
This is our house!!!

Daisy's first snow!! She loved it.

Top of Matthews car!
Part 2 of Posting....
It is Basketball tournament time in our area. It is so exciting.
Of course Jaden loves this. Here are a few pictures of his fun time during the games.
We have won the last 3 games and we play Tuesday night.
SO MUCH fun!!!

This is Jaden running out. I wish this was not blurry.
This is our team. We won the district, now we play in the Regions.
The coach always makes sure that Jaden is right in the middle.
He thinks he is the stuff...... so sweet. The boys just love him too.

This is after they won. Jaden always runs down there to give them all a HIGH 5.
Again.... we just love it.
