Appalachia Chatter and Chitter

The Golden Birthday

the pressley girls with instruments

The girls turn 25 today. In the weeks leading up to this special birthday I kept thinking there has to be a name for turning the same age as the day of your birth. I was right! Since the girls are 25 years old on the 25th day of September that means it is their golden birthday.

It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating their very first birthday.

In typical Chitter and Chatter fashion even that first birthday was beyond memorable…they tore into the cake like most babies do and immediately had an allergic reaction to the icing 🙂 A quick bathtub visit washed off the offending icing leaving them to enjoy the rest of the evening albeit with blood red faces and hands.

There hasn’t been a dull moment in the last 25 years. You never know what Chatter and Chitter will come up with next—they keep us on our toes with smiles on our faces.

Since the day the girls were born they’ve brought us sunshine and love. I wish Chatter and Chitter a wonderful golden birthday.

    Great post Tipper. Thank you for honoring those young ladies, best wishes for them. I have had the honor of meeting several twins in my life, and as much as they were the same, each one had a unique character. So we see the hand of God and the miracle of His creation. God bless.

    Tipper, I was born on September 25 71 years ago. Don’t know if the thought has occurred to you and Matt, but it seems your daughters were born nine months after Santa Claus visited your house. It seems to be a common birthday. In our church which averages approx. 100 attendance each week, we have 8 members with this birthday. Just wondering if any one else has noticed this phenomenon. We have a lot of fun with it at church this time of year.

      I won’t be 71 until Oct 1st, old man! Count back 9 months and it’s New Year’s. I guess I know how my parents celebrated the new year now. I never would have thought of that.

    The very happiest of happy birthdays to Corie and Katy. You two brighten the world up where you are, as I’m sure your Mom and Dad can attest. You are each one of the Lord’s candles. Shine on.

    I had to sit and think where I was and what I was doing when I was 25. When I figured it out, I recalled those were good days and I enjoyed them. As Dad would say, ‘There’s be a lot of water under the bridge since then.’

    Blessings for each of you today and always.

    Happy Golden Birthday to two beautiful, nice, and extremely talented young ladies! I wish you a day of good food, good people, fun, and a present you really hoped for! Above all I wish you health, resilience, strength, wisdom and prosperity in the Lord who watches over you and has and will forever! God bless you as you’re blessed in the city and blessed in the country. Deuteronomy 28:1 thru14. Did I mention people born in September are fabulous in ALL WAYS!?!?!! Lol. In my case I don’t think daddy had much to give for Christmas the year before I was born so he gave “love” and see how that ended up? Lol

    All best wishes to the delightful twins with the singularly apt nicknames. It’s been my pleasure, for the last decade or so, to watch them grow up, thrive, exercise remarkable creativity in many arenas, listen to them pick and sing, and observe with a smile their garrulous, gregarious natures.

    Happy birthday, Corie and Katy.

    Aww Tipper, I know y’all are so proud of your daughters. They are both such lovely young women. I’m a new subscriber to your YouTube channel, and theirs. The first of your videos that I watched was you cooking supper and making fried corn. It felt like I was just sitting in your kitchen with you while you cooked. You have such a sweet, calm, wholesome demeanor that you’ve passed on to the girls. They are just precious. Thank all y’all for keeping the old ways alive. The world needs more people like y’all.
