Happy Birthday Matt

Today is Matt's 40th birthday, and he is half a world away in Guam. Scuba diving. Now how many people can say they did THAT on their 40th? I'll probably be washing dishes and changing diapers. But this isn't about me! It's about Matt - and believe me, he had a hellish haul getting TO Guam for business; so it's not all fun and games. So I wanted to do something special for him, and thanks to his sister I have all these fun photos to post for him to see. When you try to compress 40 years into a few photos, it's REALLY hard, so I know I'm missing some stuff (our wedding is a big one) but I had to go with what was already digital, and what Matt's sister Amy was kind enough to scan for me. So without further ado, the life of Matt, in pictures:


Sweet Baby Matthew


Matt must be about 18 mos. old here, as my first thought was
'my God he looks just like Jason'



Got to love the 70's!


Here I start to see the man I know


Papa, Uncle Russ, Matt and his father Ben


Amy is this the beetle you wrecked?
The one Matt came home from the hospital in? :-)



3 generations of Lockes


Matt is always willing to pitch in and help


He calls his mother 'sweetheart'


He's the fun parent


He's handy


His favorite holiday is Halloween


He was a great big brother


and still is today


He loves me, even when I look like this


and he gave me these 4 little beauties


but no matter how old he gets, he'll still be his Momma's little boy.

Happy Birthday Matt!
Your cake will be waiting when you get back!
