It's So Much Fun Turning One

Today was Cooper's First Birthday....this year has gone so fast. It is so hard to believe this failure to thrive baby has turned into our Chunky Monkey!

It was about 95 degrees outside so we had a small Wii tournament going on upstairs at some point but it was a wonderful time with great friends!!! Cooper enjoyed his first cake and we hosed off the chair (and him). Now that Cooper is one, maybe it is time to start considering another little one......hmmmm......husband having heart attack.........



In honor of his nickname, we had a monkey themed party. I made a Monkey Number 1 onesie and matching hat for him to wear. The invites which I received a million compliments on, was created by SafiaStyle , wait until they see the matching Thank-you Cards! The banner was made using this 6" by 6" sampler pack of monkey paper from Barking Dogs Boutique. I simply used some 1/2" red fabric binding and tucked them in and glued it together.

ohhh how fun! My little monster mash is going to be one in a couple weeks!! I can believe he is one already...ohh tear! I want another one now too but the hubby has that same sort of heart attack :)

The craft show fee is a lot but I really think it is worth it, like you said big exposure! It will be in our arena that just got remolded and can hold thousands of people plus they are having an indoor amusement park and soo soo much more...

Im getting excited :)

Good luck to you and Happy Birthday Chunky Monkey!!

Happy Birthday to your little guy and you are so creative!

I have a similar post up on my blog since my little guy turned 1 on the 15th and his party was on Saturday as well. Gotta love it when they get into the cake! HA!

Love your monkey themed party! We did the same type of thing for my little Maguire's birthday. Your blog is so fun (I found it through etsy). Mind if I link to you from mine?
