Dr. Suess Thing 1 and Thing 2 Birthday Party

In honor of Dr. Suess's Birthday this week (which is on March 2nd in case you didn't know) I thought I would show you my boys Thing 1 and Thing 2 party that we had for them on New Years Day. The theme was perfect for my boys who can tear up a house fast these days.

This is the invitation we used. Obviously that black dot was not on the original invitation, I used that to cover up our personal information. We got these from the etsy seller thepartyshoppe.

In case you couldn't tell in the invitation we used their one year pictures we had taken eating their cake. These were taken by Cole Photography. The cakes were made by my awesome friend Jessica. The shirts were made by the etsy seller snugglesoflove.
This was the sign in table. I had everyone sign the Dr. Suess book Happy Birthday to You! with well wishes for the boys. I also wrote a letter in there for them. I think I will do this every year at their party with a book that fits the birthday theme.
This is the sign that let everyone know to sign the book. I got this idea from Michelle at So Wonderful, So Marvelous. Doesn't she have the cutest ideas?
My boys birthday is on December 26th and I had their party on New Years, so my christmas tree was still up so I just made it a birthday tree. I bought some ornaments in blue (I already had the red ones) and also had some handmade ornaments. I made them using the pages out of a old Cat in the Hat book, some Dr. Suess stickers I found in the Target dollar spot and of course my trusty Silhouette.
This is the cake table. I had cut out some red felt into circles and I forgot to put them on the table. I think that would have made it pop a little more. The banner is pictures I took of the boys every month in their glider with a teddy bear(my teddy bear I had as a child). I also had pictures from their one year photo shoot on the table.
Their smash cakes and cupcakes were also made by my friend Jessica.

The boys loved digging into their cakes. They wore their One Fish, Two Fish bibs for the occasion. I made the banners for their highchairs using red and blue cardstock and again I used the old Cat In the Hat book to make the letters.
The boys with all their loot. Can you say spoiled?
First I should say this is pretty much how every family picture turns out, always one trying to escape. I got our Thing 1 and Thing 2 and Mom of Things shirts from the etsy seller dzns4ubyme. They were hand painted. Now before you ask where my husbands Dad of Things shirt is, I knew he wouldn't wear it so I figured I wouldn't even waste the money.
The sign that told everyone to take a cookie as a favor. We decided to do this in lieu of goody bags because we had mostly adults and babies.
My cousin Cathryn and I stayed up late working on these sugar cookies. Thanks Cathryn!
Hope you enjoyed our party! Happy Birthday Dr. Suess and my sweet nephew Brandon who also has a birthday on the 2nd! Now go read a Dr. Suess book in honor of him. My personal favorite is Horton Hatches the Egg.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am anxious about
switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!
