Stay strong little man.

The MDA lock up event last week was a big success. They had over 70 "Jail birds" who were "arrested" and had to get donations for their bail. Our friend Melissa raised 1300 dollars. Matthew was there to handcuff her and cheer her on.

It ended up being a very cold Halloween. Matthew went to our friend Jacob's costume Birthday party in the afternoon. They are only one week apart in age. He had fun trying to break the pinata.
Since it was so cold out, Matthew didn't go trick or treating. He handed out candy to the neighborhood kids. 23 in all. He counted every one of them.
Matthew's sweet Friend Eithene dressed as Tinkerbell for Halloween and Matthew was Peter Pan. They are such a cute pair that I couldn't resist putting both of their pictures together. Such sweethearts. :) Eithene really needs some extra prayers. She is still inpatient at CHB and dealing with yet another infection. :((( Matthew's 6th Birthday is less than a week away and it's the first time that he will have a cake that he will be able to try. is arranging a special egg free cake to be made for Matthew's birthday. It will be a Tinkerbell/fairy themed cake. I am so happy that an online friend of ours told us about this wonderful organization. Thank you Donna. :)
