Party Time!

Me and Ryan the night of his 8th grade dance. Yes, sigh, he is bigger than me!

The last two weeks of the boys’ school were a whirlwind- to say the least. There was Kindergarten stepping up and Grammar school graduation (with all the dances and parties that now seem to come with it!)

Now mind you- all the hoopla was brought on by one person- and one person only. Me. I decided that parties were in order…yes- lets have three rounds of parties here…and lets make the last one a catered affair with a Seussical theme! The fact that my older guy Ryan was really digging the Seuss theme only made me more determined to devote every crafty bone in this bod to my mission! (I gave him- then read to him through tears “Oh the places you’ll go” the night before graduation. He loved it.)

It took about 2 months of planning- hours on Pinterest (yes- what a punishment- but someone has to do it *she sighs dramatically*) a few trips to the craft stores and lots of nights laughing together with a big crafty mess and takeout dinner on the dining room table- but we did it. And I am really happy with how it came out! This has been such an important part of our little home these past few weeks that I wanted to be sure to share some of it here with you!

Let the party begin!


What kind of mom would I be if I didn’t decorate the car and honk embarrassingly at pick up the last day of school? At least I didn’t paint my face!


My boys! The next time I get a photo like this, the little guy Liam will be graduating 8th Grade, and Ryan will be graduating college!


I spent 3 hours on these photo booth props- you can be darn skippy I was going to say cheese!


Paper straws, home made pinwheels, ribbon topiarys, and a loud splash of Seuss colors….



Who can resist a red boa?


Yep. It was a funtastical day!!
