Mom's birthday was this past Wednesday, May 7th. This is what she got:
My brother called at 5:15 AM to tell us that Jennifer was in labor (yes, my sister in law's name is Jennifer). I said great, I'm going back to sleep, call me when she's done.
Everything went just fine and she got finished giving birth to the absolutely gorgeous Matthew Jesse at 1:09 PM. I suppose if there were a competition to get our mother the best birthday gift I would have to concede to my brother this year. I don't think the slippers she asked me for are going to quite top this.
