I am so glad all my craaaaazy planning paid off. The Thing 1 and Thing 2 theme was a hit, and thanks to everyone who noticed that everything (food included) was blue and red! I went a little overboard - and may have harmed people with the amount of blue food colouring they ingested - but it was totally worth it.
We had a few cancellations due to sickness, but thank everyone for considering the boys' health and keeping their germs away. Even with quite a few missing guests, we managed to have 50 people so it was definitely festive! We were sorry we didn't get to visit with everyone more, but I hope you all has as much fun as we did.
Everyone went waaaay overboard on presents and the boys got spoiled rotten. It was like Christmas morning for Rio when we opened them, and lucky little girl even got a few presents for herself!
We have a lot of fun pictures, as we tried to take photos of all the guests (bah humbug to those I've noticed didn't get in on the action!). There are too many photos to post them all here so I've included just a few. But you can see the rest in my facebook album here (no account required).
Thanks again everyone, it was a day that will never be forgotten!
The Things - so happy all day
Miss Cat in the Hat got tired of the hood pretty quickly!
A Bunny and a Flapper - not exactly along with the theme
Not sure about this...
Eat at your own risk (doesn't it look pretty though?!)
