Monkey See, Monkey Do! Myles P. Turned Two!

This past weekend we had Myles’ 2nd birthday celebration. It’s hard to believe yet another year has passed. I felt like we *just* had his first birthday party!

Anyway, here are just a few pictures of our small but fun, sock monkey themed celebration.

I absolutely love this picture. He was having such a great time and couldn’t be more pleased that he got his own cupcake- all to himself.

We had the cutest invites. (Thank you Posh Pixels for the design). All I ┬áhad to do was sew a little line around the edge of the invitations which was fun! I hadn’t sewn paper in awhile- or anything for that matter.

My mom making the cupcakes — cause everyone knows I can’t bake. That’s another story for another day.

The cupcakes finished! John made the little toppers for the plain cupcakes and I made the little monkey ones using pieces of vanilla wafers and brown gel icing. Oh, and I made the stands out of cardboard pieces to pout cakes on lined with ribbon and small terra cotta pots I painted brown.

Of course we had to decorate the chalk board/mirror to go with the sock monkey theme…

Another cupcake shot and the cookie cake I decorated. Not too bad, right?

Decorations. These little pennants were made with just random pieces of scrapbook paper in different colors and textures that I thought would go with the theme. I really like how they turned out!

So I’ll admit, this is sort of weird but it was fun and everyone got a good laugh out of it. I took a bunch of random pictures of Myles I found on my computer, enlarged them and printed them in black and white. They are from when he was three months old to just several months ago. I would have liked to add more to the birthday hats I cut out of the extra scrapbook paper but didn’t have the chance. If anything, Myles loved it so I kept it up until this weekend.

The uncertainty of fire on his food tray. Don’t worry, we were really close and he knew not to touch it.

Present time!

I still can’t believe my little guy is two! Time goes fast, that is for sure.
