Thing 1 and Thing 2

My cute, talented friend from Cheyenne (who no longer lives in Cheyenne either), made Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes for her kids one year for Halloween. We had a combined birthday party for Kel and my nephew Jace this year. Since he was turning one and Kel was turning two I thought a Thing 1 and Thing 2 party would be perfect. So I copied my friend, and I think the results were awesome! Thanks for the inspiration, Holli, love ya, miss ya!
I didn't tell my sis-in-law what I was doing, but just had her come. We ate and chatted and then when it was time for the actual party to start, I took Kel and Jace in and came out and surprised everyone! Yeah, they're darling, I know!
We danced with pom-pom thingies, blew bubbles, and had a water blob (saw on the internet). The little kids weren't too sure of the water blob at first, but it became a huge hit....soooo loved it! Thing 1 and Thing 2 hair party hats along with blue crepe streamers and red balloons were the decorations. We didn't even blow out candles, we got too involved in the ice cream, but that was okay, I think everyone had a great time! Love these two little munchkins, they are such blessings in our lives and I'm soooo happy they will have each other to play with as they grow!

Thing 1 and Thing 2. Happy Birthday, Babies!

This is as close to a normal family picture as we get...yeah, I know, we rock!

Love this pic! She is soooo happy!

Thing 1 liked the plastic as well as the ice cream!

Thing 1 and his cute Mommy!

Thing 2 is soooo excited to be two. She is actually yelling, "Doo, Doo!"

This is my model on the water blob. She actually got on it, saw me get my camera, and posed for me. What a ham!

Auntie and Kel jumping on the blob. Kel was roaring with laughter!

Here's a group shot of the blob. It was cool and refreshing and the place to be!

Great Grandma and Grandma, enjoying the party.

Jace got a cowboy hat and stick pony from Grandma and Grandpa! Cute Cowboy!

Louie was playing with Jace and his new Jack in the Box! He loved it!

Cowgirl Thing 2. She got a pink stick pony!

And the greatest part of the party...the cupcakes. I wanted them to have blue frosting swirling up looking like the blue hair. NAILED IT!!!
