3: One last birthday post
Following the homemade theme for Owen's birthday...
He and I made these invitations for the little party we held with friends. It was more the thought-that-counts in the end, though...most of these were mailed only a few days before the party so we ended up pre-inviting a few friends in person. Still...what little kid doesn't love getting real mail...addressed to them...for a party!
One of Owen's favorite activities is watercoloring. He filled up an extra big sheet of thick paper with some beautiful bold colors and then helped me punch out holes all over the sheet. I cut the tip off of the holes to make each look like a rounded pendent and glued them on some leftover cardstock (I had stored since our wedding!) which had the message printed on.
I wrote a little note to each boy (or grandparent) on the back to let them know how excited we all were to have them come to the party.
The plan was to send one to each grandparent...even if distance made attending impossible...but we ran out of time. Maybe posting some pictures a few weeks late can be the next best thing?
