Last weekend, I went to Houston to attend
the first birthday party of my 1 year old
Boy, can my niece and nephew-in-law
throw a party.
They would be the first to say
that others, like MawMaw and
Aunt Stacie pitched in to make
it a success.
I hope you enjoy the wonderful pictures of all
the details that made the party so much
fun for children and adults alike.
|Popcorn in cute bags with Dr. Seuss sayings.|
I had not heard that term
before but these were the cakes that
and Thing 2--Nick
smashed and ate.
|Assorted sweets all in the blue and red theme.|
|"Real" food too and even a cheese tree.|
|Everywhere you turned, there were more decorations.|
|Wreaths with pictures of the boys during|
their first year.
This is Alex.
|This is Nick.|
|Each boy had a book|
for the guests to sign so they
would one day "remember"
who was at their first
|Drinks in a cute color coordinated tub|
|A welcome to our party arrangement|
|Fili's parents had these|
cute Thing 1 and Thing 2
|Mom and Dad|
|A great caricature artist who was a huge hit.|
|The stars of the show|
They were so, so cute
and such troopers though the whole party.
|The Pinatas were a huge|
success with the cousins.
|Nick got a shot|
|Alex gets his turn.|
|Cousin Graham got in on the action.|
|Aaron confiscated Thing 1's|
foot when it finally fell off.
|The birthday boys were worn out|
by the end of the day and needed
So thankful that I am able to
travel to Texas for special
occasions like these.
Happy Birthday, Nick and Alex.
