Five Years of one, One Month of the other
I'm a little behind on blogging.... Last weekend Davey my sweet, talkative, car-obsessed, bubbly little boy turned 5 years old. In lieu of throwing a big bash (which we've done for the past 3 years) we decided to take it easy on ourselves and take a road trip to Portland, OR where we got to attend the baptism of 3 month old cousin Samuel and, perhaps most exciting of all, we stayed in a hotel with A SWIMMING POOL! The kids had a blast, and so did the grownups! Grandma (my mom) was out visiting at the time and got to spend lots of time bonding with the boys.
And little Mikey is officially one month old. I finally just got around to ordering his birth announcements. In the past I made birth announcements by hand, which always seemed to involve lots of cutting, glueing, folding, etc. Stuff that I don't have the time and patience for these days. And besides, it seemed like the people we were sending them out to didn't have much appreciation for handmade stuff anyway. Made me sad to think that my handmade cards were probably ending up in someone's recyclables. So I tweaked a photo of him in photoshop and got cards printed up at winkflash.com. They turned out beautifully. Thank you winkflash for being quick and e-c-o-n-o-m-i-c-a-l. Here's the picture I used.
p.s. A big thanks to the commenters last time who recommended online shopping. Oh my goodness--sheer brilliance. And here's the bonus--I found out that one of my husband's work benefits is free delivery when shopping at Safeway.com. Yipppeeeee!
