"Today was good. Today was fun.
Thank you, Thank you, everyone!"
Center piece for the gift table. 
The gift table with some of the gifts. The sign reads:
"Today you are you,
that's truer than true.
There's no one alive,
that's youer than you. --Dr. Seuss"

Our matching shirts! Thing Mom, Thing Dad, Thing 1 & Thing 2. 
Gotta love Dominic's expression. Hehe. He just wanted to play. 

During Giovanni's 1 year slideshow, the kids got up on stage and danced. It was so adorable!

 Opening some books, one of his favorite things!

Ooo paper!
Hmm.. what is this?!?
Yum! YUM!!
The Cake after Giovanni got a hold of it. 
The aftermath. Needless to say, I think he LOVED it!
The kids had so much fun playing under that table.
The happy little 1 year old! 
The worn our parents. But it was worth it! 
The LOOT! This kid made out like a bandit! 
I'd say he had a great party!

  16. Hi i love your idea for this party super cute i was just wondering where i can get a shirt like that??

    1. Thanks! It was super fun to do. I bought our shirts from two different venders, but I could have bought them all at either or. I just happened to wait until the last minute to get our shirts and buying off Ebay was a faster delivery.

      So, I got our (the adult shirts)shirts off Ebay. Here is the shop link.

      And I bought the boys shirts off Etsy.

      All the shirts turned out great and well made. Not a cheap iron on. The feel professional. The boys shirts ran a little small, and our shirts ran big. Hope this helps!

  17. Thank you very much U have a gift you should be a party planner. :)
