My twins are two

Grant and Collin turned two today. I can't believe it. It just sickens me that little kids have to grow up so quickly. Why can't they just stay young and innocent and care-free?

I want them to grow up, it's just if I could prolong the process I think I would be a little less overwhelmed by the warp speed growth. Nevertheless, I came to terms with it and threw a little party for them and their pre-school group today.
The invitations: I have always been an opponent of scrapping, but I may have loved making this. What's happening to me?
The shirts are a bit small, but they'll do.

My newly painted white chairs go great with the decor!

Thing one and thing two cupcakes with cotton candy hair.
The party favors: blue play dough in tiny "fish bowls".
Green eggs and ham.
Grant stayed awake for the whole party. Collin did not.

P.S. Party inspiration came from here, here, and here. I love the Internet.

I was telling Andrew all about your amazing party planning skills. Caroline carried her fishbowl around all afternoon. It was hilarious.
