So, Matt's 2nd birthday present to me came in the mail on Friday (I would have posted it yesterday, but when it rains our internet goes out-ugh). It was a Kickball album - "everything is a miracle, nothing is a miracle, everything is" - that I had been wanting. Not only is it a great album, but it also comes on beautiful white vinyl. I couldn't resist showing it off a bit. I'll brag about more gifts later.
