What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Crazy Bird

It doesn't matter if Matt makes silly faces at the camera or not. He is still the most handsome guy I know. I took this photo to document the start of his 'birthday transition'. You see, he grows a beard each winter and then shaves it off again for his birthday. But-if he REALLY wants a present early, he has to DO something for ME. This time, I asked him to shave his beard into a goatee (or how ever you spell that.)

An interesting side note: I must say, this year for the first time, instead of growing his beard to old-man, forest-bachelor lengths, Matt kept it trimmed and well kempt and I found it amazingly attractive. So-for all of my friends who knew me as an avid beard-hater, I am no longer. :-) That said, I do look forward to seeing him clean shaven again. BUT-I will look forward to his beard again come winter! Posted by Picasa

I could make a silly, sarcastic comment about beards, but I'll leave that to John. And I think Matt looks really good, even if he's only half a man with a goatee. WHOOPS! Did I just do that...?

Matt always looks great!! I really like the goatee...but I also like the beard too. hmmm...I even like long hair on some men IF they keep it trimmed and neat. I would not recommend Matt for long hair though...HA!

I like the full beard better - not that my opinion counts even if I am a "Newman"!! Hope you are all staying warm - does Dutchess have a heater in her dog house yet??

Jean~Matt doesn't like the goatee either. He just did it for me. It is a nice change...for a month but I would prefer the full beard or no beard best.

Dutchess has been sleeping in our attached garage at night now that the weather is cold, but that is a touchy subject because for the past two nights she has found hats of Matts to chew up. He went to work today grumbling like all get out! :-)

Beards rock!!! They make a lovely, sexy feeling, rubbing across one's skin. Yes, even 'Nana's' know this. ,-)
