We originally started this blog (years ago) to keep track of the every day things in our lives that we didn't want to forget but knew that we would in time. As life got in the way, we posted less and less until March 2010 when Matthew's arrival rocked our world. Now we use this blog to let everyone know how Matthew is progressing and the big events going on at the Hoy House. We are so appreciative of everyone who has read our story and has thought and prayed for Matthew and for us.
Alyssa went to her first slumber party on Saturday night. 7 girls, lots of fun, and from what I could tell, not much slumber. We all paid the high price on Sunday. She was tired, cranky, and it was just an ugly day. The price we pay for fun! Thankfully she seemed much better this morning, even though we had to wake her up for school.

To keep Jackson from feeling too left out, Darren and Jackson had a campfire with smores and beer ("root" for Jackson, "adult" for Daddy). The big boys had a nice evening too, and also stayed up a little too late. Jackson weathered it better on Sunday than Alyssa did. Thank goodness- the day was ugly enough as it was!
