Levi Michael is ONE.
His momma planned
a wild animal party.
And decided it would work best
to host it at Papa and Gigi's house.
She found cute party hats.
Animals were growling
and roaring at Target
that they wanted to join the party.
They got little hats too.
She found photos of Levi
for each month of his first year.
She painted jar lids and little animals
with white paint
and filled them with animal crackers.
She gathered healthy snacks
for the young ones and toddlers.
A Costco sheet cake got sprinkles galore.
And a small SMASH cake from the grocery store.
Stuffed animals held court and
whispered secrets to Levi.
Levi's Granny had a banner made,
and we made the lemonade.
The balloons arrived,
and the high chair was high-fives.
Yea- we kinda knew the name of the
young man of the hour.
10, 20, 30, 40, 50
people were invited.
And they all came.
They flew in from New York and Orlando.
They drove from Fredericksburg and Frederick.
Levi celebrated at day care.
With his friends right there.
Little man we give thanks,
you have stolen our hearts.
