Here is the preview from TLC:
Little People Big World: Holiday Surprise: " As Matt is about to turn 50 he worries that his best days are behind him. But a series of family surprises on his birthday prove to him that the best in life is yet to come."
Rap541 has offered to give a brief preview and will recap the episode after the show.

Is Matt's birthday really a *holiday* now? Is "Roloff Punkin Season" now on Oregon school calenders? Do we really want to watch an hour of Matt kvetching how he's becoming an old goat who will soon be in a wheelchair and how his little body is just breaking down? Oh wait - we've got at least two episodes per season if not more of that already, including one that shows Matt in late 2009 bravely telling the family he was told he needed spinal surgery in six months... surgery that never happened! Despite his desperate need.
Ok seriously - who wants to bet we get a lot of Matt complaining and the series of surprises are well orchestrated events for the camera like the "birthday bash" that he announced in April, and like Jeremy returning home for the birthday bash which will be claimed as a surprise even though Matt is fully aware of contractual obligations requiring it. Then, because the holiday just passed, we'll have a faux Thanksgiving that won't mention that it didn't actually happen on Thanksgiving since the Roloffs were mostly in BVIs and Jeremy was at friends... but we'll see that myth of togetherness I am sure.
