Happy Birthday Matthew!!

Today Matt is 22! Wow! Time sure does fly. The first time I met Matt he had just turned 7. I was dating his dad and he had me over for supper to meet the kids. I thought, man these are the most well behaved children I have ever and I mean EVER seen. They said "please pass the .....", "thank you", "may I please be excused from the table?" stuff like that. Well I later figured out that Russell must have given them lessons before I got there, after that they acted like normal boys at the table!!!

It has been a joy to be your stepmama Matt. I'm sure you may have done some things wrong (GASP).....but you have been close to the Lord and so grown into a really nice young man.

Matt is in his second year in pharmacy school at the University of Florida. He's a Florida gator all the way!

One cute story about him is that Russell's parents took some of the grandchildren to Callaway Gardens when Matt was a really young boy and the FSU Flying Circus was there....they went and had a good time. Afterwards, Mema stood in line over an hour to get Matt a tshirt and when he saw it was FSU, he wouldn't have it and she had to stand in line to take it back!

Happy Birthday, Matt, I hope you spend your day STUDYING!
