I have been drawing a picture for my sister for Christmas for some time now. I have been trying to finish it before Thanksgiving so that I can take it to Utah when we go for the holiday as we will not be going to Utah for Christmas. I don't trust sending it in the mail....I don't want it to bend. Well, I have been spending most of my nights for the past two weeks trying to get it done. I finished the horses head and felt like I was on the home stretch. I left yesterday afternoon to take some family photos of some friends. When I came home I found this to my absolute horror!!! I just turned around and walked out of the house, sat down on the front step and cried. There is nothing I can do to fix it, I tried many different tricks. My lovely son Henry, pushed so hard on the paper with the pencil that it dented the paper. Even if I got the pencil marks off, which I can't, the integrity of the paper texture is gone. I will simply start over. I am so sad but I also know he just wanted to help.....

I can not believe that Henry is big enough to do this. I am so excited for him, riding a bike opens up a whole new world and brings on a whole new level of independence!!

So for the past month I have been thinking about Henry's birthday. He is turning 4 and is so so excited! When I ask him what kind of a party he wanted he said, "Space". Hummmm, Space......how am I supposed to pull that off? Well, I have been thinking and thinking and looking and finally came up with a starting point, aliens....... From there his party just took off. It was his first real party with friends and such so we decided to go all out. We cleaned out the garage and decorated it like space. We hung christmas lights (stars), paper balloons (planets), a rocket and had all kinds of alien and space games for the kids to play. We had pizza, veggies (Henry's favorite), space cake (Henry's request) and ice cream. It was so fun with all of his little friends. I think every one had a great time. Here are some pics of event.
