Tree cam rides again

Posted by Matty

Last night the camera died. Perhaps too much Christmas spirit?

It was his Bonez’ birthday this week (yesterday, to be exact). Birthdays are celebrated for an extended week at our house: weekend to weekend.

So far, he has received all things that make a Matty happy:

  • a kewl pad of diner placemats
  • PEZ shoes
  • PEZ display stands
  • battery-operated, swimming pool shark
  • spinning books
  • spumoni ice cream
  • Weeds season 2 DVD

And there’s so much more left to do/give (get, in his case)!

Come on and wish this Bonez a Happy!
