I have a thing for invitations…

I don’t mean to brag, but for a mom, I’m kind of a 5th grade boy. I wasn’t going to share this because we are having a fairly small birthday party for Russell, but the invitation turned out SO RAD it begged to be posted. Yes, I said “rad!”

Turn up the volume!

I made every one of the 107 frames in that using paint.net and then popped them into a slideshow program and added some music. Cheapest invite I ever made. Or should I say free-est?

Russell hasn’t seen this yet! I guess I can’t wake him up to show him…. right?


Right. <sigh>


I knew I should have woken him up! It was awesome. At first it seemed like he had no reaction, but in retrospect I think he was just in shock because all of sudden he started to say “That’s a Mario… Mario… A MARIO RUSSELL! THAT’S A MARIO RUSSELL!!” and then proceeded to point at the screen and yell about Mario Russell and then watch it ten million times and make his own sound effects for it.

It was totally worth it.

Serioulsy? I never commented on this? How is that even possible?!?!?!

So I don't know if you know this or not (yes you do) but I am in total awe and jealousy or your awesomeness and abilities when it comes to all things computer-y. ALL THINGS. Maybe I was just morning that I wasn't able to go to the Mario party and that's why I didn't comment. I'm not sure, but I still watch this when I need a little happiness.
