Finding Nemo and Anna

By K.J. Cardinal

Anna's second birthday is coming up in a few weeks (October 5 to be exact) and we decided to have a Finding Nemo theme to the party.

Aunt Kate (or as Anna says "Aunt Cake") is fittingly enough going to be making Anna a cake to follow the theme, so I thought it was equally appropriate to have the invitations follow suit.

So here's what I concocted...

I think it's rather hilarious, but Anna doesn't quite know what to make of it. If you point to Nemo and ask her "Who's that?" She says "Nemo". If you point to Dori and ask her "Who's that?" She says "Dori". But when you point to the fish with Anna's face and ask her "Who's that?" She's unresponsive.

I have definitely stumped her with that. I'm trying to teach her that it's "Anna", but she's not having it quite yet.

NOTE: I'd like to apologize to our extended family (especially the Lord clan) and friends that we were unable to invite to the party. Our house isn't that big and by just inviting immediate family we are probably violating major fire codes... d*mn Portuguese :) Anyway, I hope you all understand. For really big occasions, we'll be sure to throw monumental rippers for Anna and you can all celebrate with us then.


  1. KJ,
    No worries! We understand and know you still love us :) Emma and I do need to schedule a visit though. We miss you guys.


  2. I can't wait for the party! I will be embarking on my Nemo cake extravaganza starting Friday....wish me luck!!!
