Birth Announcement

14 years ago today, I gave birth to my first child. After watching the premiere of a new sit-com, "Friends", I went to bed, got up to go to the bathroom at midnight and my water broke! 14 hours of labor and no epideral, I was rewarded with a 9 lb. 1 oz baby boy who was born at 2:38pm.
Sunday, we celebrated by taking Matthew and a few friends to an indoor Go-Kart racing center -MB2. That's Patrick-he won the second race

We strapped on our helmets and flew around the track 12 times in our first race. Took a break for fuel (pizza) and then another 10 laps. Even my 10 and 7 year old got to drive their own karts in a junior race. Chasen won his second race!
The birthday boy, Matthew, is in the green shirt, holding down his brother!
For the goody bags, I bought the boys MB2 t-shirts and a custom bag of candy. I put tire tracks on the bags with toy trucks. The boys liked the flags in the cup cakes. I was happy they didn't use them as weapons! (you know, like the 3 year olds!) Happy Birthday Matthew! I love you! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

So fab! I have only one grandchild, a girl, and one child, a girl. I think whenever boys finally come along I'm not going to have many ideas for boy themed things!

Your creativity is just wonderful!
