Happy Birthday Matt!

December 1982


Today is my baby boy’s 26th birthday.  Probably time to stop calling him that!!  He’s 6’2″ and slightly more than his 8 pounds at birth but as his mama I can still call him my baby!  A December birthday was challenging at times.  When he was small, we always said, “Next year we are going to celebrate your birthday in the summer.”  But of course, we never did.  So he suffered through birthday presents wrapped in Christmas paper and birthday parties that always had Christmas trees.  But I think he turned out pretty well in spite of all of that!  
Matt lives in Charleston, South Carolina.  It’s been home to him for about three years.  He loves it. He loves his job and he has found a church that he loves.  So I guess we lost him to the Low Country.  But its not a bad place to visit!!!   


Second Birthday Picture–of course there’s a Christmas tree!!


I can honestly still remember this shirt!!!  It seems like it was in the washer just yesterday!


Here’s to you birthday boy.  Looking forward to having you home for Christmas!!!



  1. I see a little bit of Matt in Charlie. Loved all the tidbits of info from 1982!
