This page is about Andrew's birthday. His third birthday, which was over a year ago. I've had these photos printed and stored for months, but each time I went through my photos I would see these and think: No way. I am NOT touching those pictures.
Part of the reason why is that the colors were a little wonky in a lot of the shots. But the big reason why is that that day, Andrew's birthday party day 2008, was a really hard day. It was 300 million degrees. I had just had a baby six weeks before AND I had a six week old to care for. In typical Robyn fashion I wanted his party to be over-the-top and so I overdid it. I wanted to a) prove to myself that I still can pull off a great party even with a newborn and b) to prove to Andrew that his birthday would not be overshadowed by his baby brother.
Tall order, my friends. In fact, too tall!
I don't think I knew it was a hard day for me until several months later when I kept avoiding these photos. But I really wanted to do something with them, because even though it was a hard day for me, it was an AWESOME day for Andrew. And that deserved a little recognition. So, I bought some motivating and fun birthday supplies (look at that super cute bingo card!!) and sat down and got the job done.
Amazing what time and a little scrapbooking can do for a girl. Word?
