Astronaut Birthday themed party

February 23, 2013

So I’ve spent a little more than a week getting the house and such ready for my son’s 6th birthday.   He chose an astronaut theme.  Below are the various things I made for the party.

I'll save you the whining about this one and just simply say I sewed two valences together.

The other rather awesome thing we had to give out to the kids that attended was an autographed picture of a particular retired astronaut plus pin.  We had actually asked this astronaut to attend (Hubby is wiring his house) but he had other obligations for the weekend.  He gave us signed pictures, pins and patches (which we kept for our son.  Will place them in a shadow box I think.)

Between the cleaning, the crafting and a rather nasty cold, I’m plain worn out.

      Thanks! Yeah the only thing better is if he had been able to attend…but he was most generous! I have a thank you note for Hubby to give to him.
