For some reason, Toby has been talking about birthdays. When he turned 1, we had a "sock monkey" party for him. It was only natural to have a monkey party since he went through most of his first year being referred to as the monkey, or monk. I had a lot of fun planning it, but spent way too much time getting ready for it. I kind of really love planning birthday parties.
I asked him what kind of party he would like this year for his 3rd birthday, and he said "I think I probably should have a lion party. "Atchally" a rocket party...or maybe...." So...we haven't quite made any solid plans yet....it's a good thing we have until April!
I made this monkey cutout as a last-minute idea for something to do at the party. This picture was of Toby doing a test-run before I'd had a chance to add the arms!
The birthday boy!

I made the bunting and crayon rolls out of Erin Michaels sock monkey fabric my Moda.
I found it here online: Fat Quarter
I was such a nerd and made crayon rolls for the favors. It took wayyy too long to do...why do I put myself through stuff like this?? At least Toby still uses his.
We took pictures of all the little guests behind the monkey cutout, so I used those for the Thank you cards.
