Houston We Have a Problem

So as many of you know, I have been planning Cole's Bday for awhile now. I decided forever ago that he should have a space party. I have had all the planning and mental images stored up for months now, and here I am a week and a half away and the plans have to become real.

So for several days now I have been gathering, creating, cutting, glueing, drawing, coloring, etc. I have finished the walkie talkies that will go on their space utility belt (but the binoculars and alien catcher have yet to be made), the alien match cards have been drawn (but not copied for the poster), the rocket packs are hot glued together (but still need the arm straps on them).

Just so that you can all say..."this is your own fault why are you whining?" I am going to give you a little run down on what I still have to do!

trace, cut out and hang stars
finish utility belts
glue and cover binoculars
make alien bags
convert my two-seater jogging stroller into a moon rover with foil
hang black plastic to make our basement space
hang white lights for extra stars
make astronaut certificates
make alien poster
make astronaut file folders, for their test to be astronauts
finish jet packs
cut, assemble, and paint boxes into astronaut helmets
get simple space info for space school
build a rocket cake
make ice cream aliens
make and assemble goodie bags
various decorating
...and anything else I forgot

I know what you are thinking, I am crazy and I brought this on myself! I can't say that I disagree with you. SO yes, Houston I have a problem. AND Space my really be my final frontier! PS no comment on the cheesy space one liners.

I have daughters who would love to color, cut and paste anything you want. Give us a call :)

I'm not thinking you're crazy... I think you are amazing! Sounds like it's going to be a great party! I am on the complete opposite end of the spectrum and couldn't even find the time to make Berrett's birthday cake this weekend. Good luck!

so, is this easier than the cars from last year? :) You must sure love your kid! My poor kid got an adult party with a foot long sub from Wal-mart, and a bag of potato chips. I guess the Little Mermaid cake show's I put forth a little effort.
P.S. Did I say 'Adult Party'?!?! I meant a few familys came over, so I guess I should have said a family party. Poor Choice of wording. Oops
