The Great Gavini is my sweet little Chimp that loves magic, extra pickles and ketchup on everything.
For his 8th Birthday-he wanted a magic show mixed with tie dye, rainbows and sequins. Okay, okay, I am kinda lying about the sequins-those were my idea;) You know Glitta Mama needs to see shiny things.
The weather is NY is chilly-so we partied indoors for the most part. Clearly, I am neither a stylist nor photographer~just a Mama that loves to see her son smile with joy and celebrate with his besties. We had such a beautiful day. Abracadabra awesomeness.
