Aiden's Birthday Party

Well, I am finally recovered from the marathon of entertaining and parties from the past couple of weeks. Not complaining, it was tons of fun. But everytime I thought about blogging, I would choose to be lazy instead. Hopefully I can get back into gear with my posts. There's a lot going on right now, but sometimes the more I have to blog about, the less time I have to actually do it. Irony.

I tried my hand (thanks to Pinterest and other bloggers) at doing handmade artsy stuff for his party. Instead of Party City/Target, I ventured off into the wild blue yonder that I call Michaels. I had no freaking clue where to find anything in that store. But luckily, they were very helpful. I just kept showing them pictures from my pinboard and asked, "What do I need to buy to make this?" [laugh]. It was a great learning experience, and really cheap too! Of course I brought along my coupons! Anyway, now I feel much more comfortable in the store, and I can't wait to go back for more (Pinterest) projects.

Aiden loves all of the Pixar movies, especially CARS. So when we heard about the sequel opening around his birthday, we knew that would be his theme. So we all went along for his first theater experience (all two rows of us). It went much better than I expected, but we will probably wait a while before the next movie adventure.

Overall, the whole party extravaganza was so much fun! I love having tons of family around. There was good food (Thanks, Jamie), tons of presents, and lots of love! I can't believe he's already 2.

Still my little baby, though.

Happy Birthday, Aiden!
