birthday.....checklist to self

OKay, for the birthday boy this weekend, I have

2. Printed out chart for thank you notes....AND put them in my control journal!!!

5. Get helium tank for balloon to tie on favors....can say done...BUT only after cornering the Walmart employeeee...here is a hint....don't ask the household lady where the party supply stuff i s in a Super Walmart

11. Buy plastic ware and paper goods. ***though I still cannot find dinosaur napkins.....note to napkin printers....print dinosaur napkins and ship them to TX....some moms will buy them!

13. Buy cute dinosaur shirt for birthday boy.......as well as cute school shoes for Liv for the fall. Who can't buy 75% off Striderite shoes she can put on herself??? heck, if I lowered her clothes bar, she could do her morning routine herself!!

8. Buy sand for dinosaur dig activity.....did this, but the sand is wet, it totally will not sift....which is what we need to find the 'bones'...do you think it will dry out by Sat??

7. Track cookies ordered from foofoo cookie place to see if where they are.....these are delivered....and we even gave some to the neighbor kids moving....because we are on top on things like that....or I would like to think I am!!

8. Buy sand for dinosaur dig activity.....did this, but it is wet...can sand dry out in two day with 85% humidity???



I still need to do:.....
3. Let me back up, make hand print for thank you notes.,,call it OOyey gooyeey Friday, I will do this tomorrow afternoon, hopefully Livi will be napping.



4. Assemble thank you notes.....yeah still need to do this one!...so if you are holding your breath for a thank you note.....here is a hint....take a breath, we haven't even made them yet!

6. Assemble favors.

Hi! Do you have a Target nearby? If the sand doesn't dry by Saturday they have a dinosaur bone sand molding kit. The kids could create their own dinosaur bones out of the sand. Just a thought.

You guys are going to have an awesome party.

For a t-shirt idea: It won't be here by Saturday, but go to the site www.alexandjett.com they have adorable personalized t's with dinos on them. Like the name of the dino would be willosaurus and then the dino would have W's all over it. Just an idea for later since he is into dinos.
