So as I start planning his birthday, I've found myself feeling a teeny bit stressed. It seems to me that the last 3 birthdays have all been practice runs for this one. Four is important. I don't know why I think that, but I do. So - I'm a month ahead and planning his cake, games, decorations and such. He's asked for a "Car" theme ... and yes, Lightening McQueen. I had wanted to take my GF's advice and do a general car-theme - but we'll see. She had a couple of great ideas for a cake, so I'm planning, planning, planning. I LOVE doing things like this, but it's the unknown that scares me. Once I do it, I'll be alright for the next 10 years or so. Fingers crossed.
Here's the invite I created last night ... I like how it turned out. I'll upload them to Costco as 5x7s. It's still cheaper than buying cards ... and you KNOW how I love to digiscrap *grin*.
And as for life, in general, today we are off to Mattias' first "real" swimming lessons in a private class of 4. So, I'm sure to add a few hundred photos to my growing collection. And I FINISHED my Dad's New York "Thank You" album. SIXTY PAGES (30 2-page layouts). Of course, I needed to make a copy for myself ... the cost? *drumroll* $170.00 per book (one for me, one for him). But it's so worth it ... I can't wait to give it to my Dad - I'm hoping he'll love it. And as soon as I do, I'll be sure to share it with you *wink*.
