I blinked....

...and last week, Matthew turned 16.

A moment ago he was a grubby little boy playing outside in Cameroon, coming in with a grimy face and filthy hair so full of dust that it stood on end...


Then he was a young man playing a French horn solo processional in his sister's wedding...

He learned to ski sometime in there...

joined the soccer team....

and discovered a love for acting...

and filmmaking...


Before I knew it, he was off to England for six weeks...


and a little later, the prom...

Sometime in there, he met Rhett and Link, laughed a lot, and developed his own quirky sense of humor...


and he got tall...

Yep. It all happened in a blink - or so it seems. That grubby little boy grew into a fine young man.

On the morning of his birthday, we woke him at a rather early hour and whisked him off to the Original Pancake house where he easily polished off a pile of strawberry pancakes. After that, we went to the Apple Store to learn more about Final Cut. He'll be upgrading his movie making software so stay tuned for great things.


Happy Birthday, Matthew. We love you!

The Original Pancake House?! This is a personal fave of mine, but nowhere near Harrisburg. Happy Birthday, indeed!
