Matt's birthday was yesterday, but I was out of town at a conference so we postponed celebrating until tonight. Poor guy had a not-so-great birthday week when he came down with a stomach bug on Tuesday and I left on Wednesday, leaving him with all the responsibilities of the kids and house. AJ was away at a sleepover last night so Matt & the girls did head to Applebee's for half price appetizers (bring back memories for you fellow Asbury grads?) and blizzards at DQ. He told me he only got 1 birthday card in the mail yesterday and it was from the car dealership. Now before you start feeling too bad for him, he did order a new iPhone this week (though it won't be delivered for 2 more weeks). That was his big present so tonight after pizza and cake, he got a few more, smaller presents.
Matt's Mom pinch hit on the cake, since I didn't get home from Baltimore until this afternoon and headed straight to AJ's soccer game (he scored 3 goals in a 5-1 win).
A new UK shirt picked out by Essie on behalf of the other kids
Matt has been wanting this shirt for weeks, but didn't want to spend the money on it so I e-mailed the link to Matt's sister and told her to get it for him (I'm so sneaky). It lists a movie title for every states in the US (Coalminer's Daughter is in the shape of KY, Hoosiers for IN, etc.) For those of you who know Matt, you know what a movie buff he is. He's seen all 100 movies in AFI's top 100 films. (I know, CRAZY).
So even though Matt's 33rd year started out a bit rough, I pray he has a great year ahead.
