Manny's 1st Birthday Party {Part 2}

Thank you SO much for all of the sweet comments and emails on part 1 of Manny's 1st Birthday Party! I'll admit I may have gone a little overboard, but I absolutely love planning parties and didn't realize how out of control it had gotten until I started setting up. Oh well, live and learn! :) Time for more pictures!
I wanted a way to document all of the guests at the party, and when I saw this idea via Young House Love I knew it's exactly what I was looking for!  All you do is take pictures of your guests with a blank piece of paper, then use an editing program (like Photoshop, or even Picnik would work) to add in their names. Then I'll print all of these pictures and put them in a little photo album for Manny so he can learn their faces & names.

We had a lot of fun with it, as well as the mustaches! :)

Sticking that tongue out...he's so goofy.

We tried to get a group shot of most of the kids there, but that was easier said than done. :)
Here are all of the boy cousins on my side of the family....such sweet boys!
And here are all of the kids on my side of the family...such a crazy & fun bunch! They are now "tied" at 5 boys, 5 girls. :)
 And my parents with all of their precious grandkids. :)
Well believe it or not, I still have more pictures - and I'm actually not even posting half of them! I'll post his smash cake and a few other pictures then I'll be done. Promise. Thanks for looking! :)
