Having a birthday party might not be your idea of getting ready for Christmas, but to me, Matt's birthday starts the clock: 10 days 'til Christmas!
Matt is a great guy. He takes care of the chickens on our backyard farm. He also spots for his brother and sister at their animal chores occasionally. His school teacher (he started public school this year) LOVES him. He gets along great with kids his own age, boys and girls alike. This kid is super well-rounded. He is simply a delight.
Happy 12th Birthday, Matt! I hope that today is as great as you can imagine!
And I hope that all of you have a great day too!
