Matt,

I really haven't had the chance to get to know you because you keep moving around. BUT, I do know that you must be a wonderful Father because of the way you were with Cara and the other grandkids when we were in Mexico. I wish ALL of you kids would move back home so our 24th of July parties could be like old times. The Utah Moms all miss their kids.

Happy 4th to You and Mindy
Love, Aunt Shauna

Like my Mom said you are so good with kids. Cara just adores you. Another thing is you seem so laid back and always have a smile on your face. I'm excited to get to know you better as the years continue. I'm also excited for your future as a doctor. I think you'll do great and have the best "bedside" manners ever.

I agree with Nicole on the whole bedside manners thing. I am terrified to call some doctors because they are so mean to the nurses. I can't imagine you ever being mean to anyone. Mindy choose a great guy!

Peck Biggest Loser said...

I have worked with Drs. for a number of years. I also have a number of nurses that work for me and most of them dislike Drs. I agree with the other comments about being a nice guy. You seem to nice to be a Dr., and so does Jim. Maybe the new generation of Drs. will be different than the old. Your patience is going to be tested over the years dealing with Greg and Tracy, so it is a good thing that you are easy going. Just kidding about the Greg & Tracy thing. It seems to me that the "Peck" grandkids have gotten the spouce thing right. Mindy and the rest of the kids have made great choices regarding their spouces, But so did the Peck kids. Glad to have you as part of the family.

Tracy said...

Thanks Shane, there's always so much love...but I guess there is a little truth to that...we are, after all, the "In-laws." Shane was right about one thing--we do have great spouses that married our kids. I couldn't have picked better if I had hand picked you for Mindy. "You'e good enough, you're smart enough and dog-gone it, people like you!!" (from Saturday night Live--maybe too many years ago.) I love that you have Jack withdrawl--just like Grandma. I just wish you'd loose Beans a little more. (that sounds bad, for those that don't know--it's a card game.) I really love that it was your idea for Mindy to come to Miami so the girls could see their nephews. Thank you--you truly are a thoughtful person.

Matt,

As the other "son-in-law" to the McArthur family, I'm not in a position to give you any great advice. I do agree with Tracy that people do like you, but more than that they should like you. You will be a great Dr. help many people. We are sorry that you can't make it to Miami, that just means we will have to find a way to get to Michigan. Talk to you later.

Tom and Lindsey said...

I'm so glad that you are part of our family. I agree with my mom about the Bean game, I would also like to add guitar hero to the games you need to lose at a little more! You and Mindy are perfect for eachother. I also agree with Tom, it would be a blast to have you come visit when Mindy comes, but like he said, we'll just have to come to Michigan.

Greg Mac said...

I knew I would like Matt even before I met him. (The BYU thing aside). He went to BYU Hawaii on the David O. McKay scholarship and since he was living at home (low housing costs) and his dad is a professor at BYUH (reduced tuition) there was money left over for his "spoil my wife" account. Its great when your daughters choose great husbands. I couldn't have gotten two better sons in law if I had picked them myself.

Can't say I'm real happy with where they live (either pair) but what's a Dad to do?

Emily said...

For those who don't know--Mindy came to Austin to visit us and to see if she would want to move there. We were so sad when she decided to move to Hawaii instead. But, when we heard that Mindy's first week she had met someone that was actually getting her to go to a FHE group, we knew that she had really fallen for this guy. I loved hearing about you through Mindy's perspective, and I couldn't wait to meet you. I can't tell you how happy we are that Mindy chose to go to Hawaii and that she found so a great fun-loving guy. We love you Matt!

For most of my life I lived within a mile of Mindy. I tend to think of Matt as a brother-in-law. He's someone who really knows how to have fun; you can't help but smile and laugh when you're with him. Here's another wish that we could all see each other more often.

Jim

Jim & Tomi said...

Matt, Mindy was really suppose to be mine. So I guess we count as the second string of parents. (After all I taught Mindy her first primary song.) Jim and I are so happy that you found each other. You are a great addition to the family. I too was so glad to see how good and sweet you were with all of the little kids in Mexico. I've seen you with little Jack and how sweet you are with Mindy. We hope that someday we'll get to spend more time together with you guys and our kids too! Love- Tomi

Matt & Mindy said...

Thanks everyone. I feel all warm and snuggly.

For over 10 years I was an addict and needed acupuncture chronic pain help. When I got the help I needed, I could start living my life again.
