The flu

If it walks like swine flu and oinks like swine flu, IT IS swine flu. Stay home if you are sick. Telling yourself that you don't have the flu doesn't make you any less contagious.

I'm just sayin'.

Blue Angels birthday party

My oldest is turning six next week and he was very specific about wanting a "Blue Angel" birthday party after seeing them perform this summer. Mr. Almost Six was also very sure he wanted the party to be at our house. That would be our teeny tiny house. I wasn't so sure I wanted a house full of kindergarten boys but it worked out thanks to Mother Nature giving us clear skies.

I started the theme with these invitations from yours truly, PaperCourt Press. Next, we rented a yellow and blue bouncy house for the yard. I made a sign for the light post that said "Last Name Field - Air Station Magnolia" (Magnolia is our neighborhood). I made a badge for each child and I bought Blue Angel airplanes and pencils for party favors from The cake was from Whole Foods. I also had a Blue Angels DVD showing on the tv in our playroom.

A good time was had by all and I'm so thankful that it didn't rain!
