It's Birthday Party Crunch Time!

WOW what a week! Sex, Intimacy, Birth Control Politics... and now it's hump day! The goof ball in me just giggled a bit. However tempting it may be to continue this trend, I'm off to prepare for a birthday party... that is happening in 3 days! Think I can do it!?

Confession: It is THREE DAYS until Aiden's super awesome Dr. Seuss Carnival. I know... I totally failed at planning ahead. Truth is, I had planned to the max but the whole bed rest thing kind of hindered my plans. I've been assured though that 4 days is plenty of notice for parents. We'll see! I haven't done a blasted thing except make these banging invitations yesterday:
I started hand writing invitations that were going to be awesome little fish (1 Fish, 2 Fish...) but after an hour having made only 3, I realized that I could design the invites with awesome colors and pictures and have them photo printed at CVS for just a couple of bucks. I was right! It took me less than 10 minutes to design this one and I was able to pick them up in 15 minutes! Talk about easy! They turned out great!

{By the way, if you are ever in need of any sort of invite or announcement, as a hobby I like to create all sorts of paper goods... FOR FREE! Just email me and we'll collaborate.}

So on the schedule for the next few days:

1. Make Signs for Carnival Stations
     a. Thing 1 & Thing 2 Portrait Station
     b. One Fish Two Fish Fishing Hole
     c. Oobleck Station
     d. Whoville Face Painting Station
     e. Pin the Star on the Sneetch
2. Pick up party favors at Michaels.
3. Paint Party Favor Bags with Aiden & O'Ryan tonight.

I'll be updating this post as I go so stay tuned! Also, if you have any suggestions for more themed games, let me know... if we use your idea I'll send you something awesome!
