Mister Raymond Matthew Heinemann

My witto brover Maffew is turning 22 tomorrow
{Tomorrow is in 34 minutes, by the way}
I can't believe it, 22. 
On my 22nd birthday I was a newly wed, having just been married only days before
Now Matt, just turning 22 is days away from his wedding.
{26 days, to be exact}

My hilarious, charming, caring and kind, smart, handsome, traditional, brother is well into his twenties.

Some of my favourite memories with Matt
1) sitting on the edge of the tub "visiting"
2) sleeping on the trampoline counting shooting stars
3) having sleepovers and playing pictionary on our backs and the one-word-at-a-time story game
4) having bon fires at Grandpa and Grandma's, making "Little Fart" pancakes and being forced into playing Scattergories at 7 am
5) Tagging along playing Nikky Nikky Nine Doors (what a success that was hey Matt?)
6) Tagging alone in anything you and your friends were doing, wishing I was a boy
7) Dare I say it? Cadets. So many memories there.
8) You're obsession with my Brownies uniform {mostly my badges}
9) your hilarious impressions, especially of Grandpa Joe
10) singing along to Geoff Moore and the Distance, playing air band to 80's rock, and watching Amy Grant music videos

This picture was taken on my wedding day.
I'd like to try and get the same one on his wedding day.

HaPpY 22nD BiRtHdAy MaTt!
