matthew’s first year zoomed by and we made it to 1! what a great adventure to plan for a cars themed birthday. as always, the family gathered to celebrate little matthew along with our closest friends. we all enjoyed another homemade cake shaped like a street with a blue “li-teen a-teen”, or lightning mc queen. the boys loved to watch cars, so it was easy to find cute things from the movie to incorporate into the party. we made little party bags with cars, candy, and chocolate. cupcakes are always a hit, so we made tons decorated in all different colors and sprinkles. the bounce house was a hit with the little ones and all the “big kids” later bounced around before the night ended. what a fantastic way to kick off matthew’s first year! many more to come, matthew! we love you!
