The month of May was a chaotic month for me. I don't think I travelled as much as I did this past May. I counted up the days that I was hope and it was less than 13 total days. That is usual for me but with some classes I was teaching, heading to Asia to finalize our tradeshow products and the Memorial Service for my dad, I was packing and unpacking suitcases all month.
And now June is here (and almost gone) as we settle into Summer and gear up for our tradeshow in July and I am preparing for my son's birthday party this weekend. My dear son turned 6 not too long ago and at his request, we are having an Angry Birds Space Party. Last year, Noah asked me to do an Angry Birds party for him and I spent a of time sewing some fun Angry Birds for Noah and his friends. Here he is posing with some that we ended up using for an invite last year:
Of course this year with the new Angry Birds Space release, Noah decided he wanted us to do an ABS theme for his party. And lucky for me, they had changed the birds enough so that I couldn't really reuse what I had for his party last year (birds were different colors, etc) so I decided we would do some things different this year.
We went to the Angry Birds Space website and printed off each of the birds and then laminated the pictures. These will be used around the table for his theme:
We also printed off some coloring sheets so kids can color and we will have a little laminator so they can make some ABS placemats to take home.
We also made a bunch of ABS baskets for all the food:
And my little gal insisted that she needed a pinkie bird cup and the bird had to be pink so I made her this special one (and for some reason she insisted the tail be where it is):
I finished up the cups this past weekend and the menu is planned. I will share more photos as soon as we finish the party.
With my travel schedule, I kept it more simple this year but with lots of fun things still. We are going to have an amazing time celebrating Noah's fun day. I cannot wait. Neither can Noah and that is what it is all about.
