Gold Star birthday party

Welcome, Space Cadets!  Come and join us in celebrating Luke's 6th birthday!  
Invitation:
Decor:
Games:
The kids colored straw rockets (printable found here).
Testing jetpacks:




They used robot arms to transfer tiny worlds in a relay race.


Cake:


Food:
Corn dog 'rockets', star shaped crackers on 'planet' crackers, and moon pies were just a few of the things offered for the Space Cadet's lunch.

Favors: 
These little rockets are nothing more that TP tubes with paper cones and tissue paper taped to the end.  Inside, they hold gold star chocolates, small bouncy balls which have glitter stars inside, and gold star stickers (which are harder to find than you would think).

Aftermath:
Not too bad if you ask me.
Gotta love those sweet little toes and the comfort of a good fort. <3 p="">

In the passing of my mother




I hope you remember mornings like this. Mornings where I covered you in kisses as the sun came up just because you were still enough, and close enough. Mornings where I shockingly climbed into your second story bed to sing "happy birthday" in your ear. Mornings where you got out of bed and said it was freezing and climbed right under my blankets with me for 20 more minutes. Mornings where we watched the sun rise through my thrift-shopped, lace curtains and sang nursery rhymes with our hands in the air doing the motions to"twinkle-twinkle". I hope you remember. Because moments like that with my mother sustained me. Through abuse. Through loss. Through abandonment. Through anger. It was moments like this that overpowered every other moment she and I had. Moments where I slept by her side and I tucked neatly under one arm. Moments where I knew, no matter how broken she was, deep down she desperately loved me.
