As Axel's birthday falls so close to Halloween, I was hoping to save a little sanity by working his Halloween costume into his party theme. He was really excited about his upcoming Rocket and Groot party, but, three-year-olds being the fickle creatures that they are, on the day of the party he insisted that he would be the Flash and nothing could convince him otherwise.
Now that Axel is getting older he has strong opinions on things, like how his party should be, which can be a little challenging for me, but on the flip side he is able to help out with the preparations which is a lot of fun.
This theme worked well for the skill levels of a preschooler since nebulas and starscapes don't need to be precise and actually look best a little messy. My little helper and I had a great time baking and decorating galaxy star sugar cookies and painting the photobooth backdrop. His pride in the projects was so heartwarming, I'm smiling just thinking of it.
As I mentioned in my last post, one of my goals for 2017 is to get back into the habit of documenting my life.
I've been using 1 Second Everyday to capture snippets of everyday life at our house.
The video quality isn't great. The camera on my phone is terrible and the lighting situation in our home is far from perfect. But it still makes me incredibly happy to see the compiled video for January.
I realized after a week or so that all I ever filmed was Axel. He's so cute, I don't mind if the finished product becomes 356 seconds of Axel.
