In honor of your 23rd birfday, we thought you would like nothing more than to have some pretty girls make you food and make a big deal about you! So here you go! Here are some pics of Heather and I SLAVING over a HOT oven to prepare delicious cake for you. Mmmmmmm.

We love you, Matty!

You are so silly!!!

Did you get a chance to go to Pendergraph last night? I was going to go, but my physical well-being apparently had other plans...

I miss you!!!

This is off the subject, but did you ever attend Prokopay Baptist Church when you were in college? I think I may have seen you before. :)

that's classic...I love it

Grace -- no, I had to work. :( I asked off for next month, though, because I want to start going all the time.

MR -- YES! I went there all 3 1/2 years I had classes, and then I student taught and went to Ft. Atkinson. Did you go there?

Heath -- that's what BFFs are for: gallons of giggles! HEE HEE HEE!

Yes, we were at Prokopay from 1996 to 2000. :) My hubby taught the adult Sunday School class on occasion, and we had our first son while we were there. I was pregnant with my second son when we left. When were you in college? Did you play volleyball?

Gretchen said...

MR -- That is the EXACT time I went there! What in the world! No, I didn't play volleyball. I worked in AWANA and had the Thelen Girls in my Guards group. This is unreal!

Small world! I've been reading your blog for a while, but just recently remembered seeing you at church back then. Did you give a testimony about witnessing to someone on State Street?

I didn't know many college students well while at Prokopay, though we threw bridal showers for some of the MBBC young ladies.

Do you remember us? We were the only Asian family in the church. :) I have a picture on my blog from my baby shower at Prokopay (it's in my favorite Scooter pics posted in Feb.).

Gretchen said...

MR -- probably. I did go to State Street a lot in college, with the campus ministry. I think I do remember you guys. You said your husband taught Sunday school sometimes, right? I think I remember him! I will have to check out your picture!

My hubby wears glasses and likes to make jokes. You would probably recognize him if you saw a picture, though he won't let me post any of him on my blog. ;)

Do you keep in touch with the Thelens or Webers? We see the Metzgars at homeschool gym class each week. :)
