no, its not dead! we have an amazing fish that likes to float on its back… all the time! it can even swim upside down! i keep thinking its going to die, but we’ve had it for almost a year. at lily’s birthday party last year, we gave goldfish as the party favor. fun to give, but probably crummy to receive as a parent – sorry friends! so this fish continues to amaze us….
on to an accomplished project: lily’s 2nd birthday invites! i finished them today. now is where you can again see my stupidity, ridiculousness… whatever you want to call it. i feel like the invite sets the tone for the whole party. SHE’S 2!!! how silly is that?! but i do, anyway. so i’m not thrilled with how the invite turned out, but its done, and thats good enough for me (although i should have already had them done and in the mail – whoops!). so i couldn’t come up with a decent them for lily’s party, which i always agonize over – its ridiculous. but we like to have big parties with all our friends with kids, and just hang out. lily isn’t into one particular thing that i could focus on, so the “theme” is “party”. the invites are supposed to look like party hats (with all the info printed on the back), although i think they look a bit like a slice of pizza? i’ll make party hats for each of the million kids, and i’m sure maybe 1/4 of them will actually be worn. i’m slowly coming up with more ideas, which is always a fun process for me. i’m hoping this will be pretty easy. probably not!
i’m almost done with silas’ announcements, too, so i’ll post when those are done.
