Breakfast With Santa

Now that December is here, it was time to visit Santa. We visited Santa at the annual Breakfast With Santa at the neighborhood clubhouse. While Pam and Andy munched on biscuits, Taylor and Matthew sat on Santa's lap to talk about how good they have been this year and all the presents they wanted. This was Matthew's first year visiting Santa and he was a little skittish at first. But as soon as Santa gave him a candy cane, he was all ready to hop on Santa's lap! Taylor and Matthew are keeping their fingers crossed that Santa remembers to bring them what they asked for Christmas!

Halloween 2007

Taylor and Matthew had quite a fun time this Halloween. The weather was perfect and lots of candy was ready to be 'gotten'. Taylor was dressed up as one of the High School Musical characters (I forget which one, but she would remember) and Matthew was Spiderman (even though he has never seen the show?). Taylor and Matthew walked the neighborhood with friends Devin (who was also Spiderman) and Annika (who was Dora the Explorer). Once the night was over, Taylor and Matthew filled the kitchen table with their candy and made sure to count each piece (of course to ensure nobody would 'steal' any)!

Grandfather Mountain Trip

In mid-October, we traveled with the Browne family for a day at Grandfather Mountain State Park in North Carolina. The weather was perfect and the fall colors were spectacular! The kids also had a great time visiting the outdoor zoo and hiking up to the top of the mountain. Matthew refused to be carried on the hike and was able to move his little legs fast enough to get to the top! At the top of the mountain we all crossed the famous Swinging Bridge to enjoy more fabulous scenary. Since we had so much fun, we hope to make this an annual event!

Matthew's 3rd Birthday

Little Matthew Phillip LaZur turned 3 on August 12th. His birthday party was held during the Prather/Stiles/Mueller/LaZur family vacation at Dale Hallow Lake in Kentucky. In between boating, water skiiing and swimming, we all found time to have cake and open presents to celebrate Matthew turning 3. Matthew was 'in his element' with all the boys on the trip and was quite the 'water bug'. Matthew looks forward to spending many more birthday's with his cousins!
