Monkey Birthday Party

Warning!! This post is photo heavy!!
I am finally getting around to posting about Peachy's 2nd birthday party. (A large part of this is due to the fact that I was too busy to take many of my own pictures. Thank goodness I have friends that are not only great photographers, but also snap happy. Thanks, ladies!)
I decided a while back that a monkey party would be in order for Peachy's birthday celebration. I told her about her monkey birthday probably about a month before the actual event. Since she really didn't know that much about birthdays at that point, I didn't think it would make that much of an impact. Boy was I wrong. For that entire month we heard about her monkey birthday everyday. If anyone asked her about her birthday, she would happily declare, "Monkey Birthday!!"
Here are the pictures and details of how the Monkey Birthday went.
The birthday girl in her monkey shirt that I made.

Monkey birthday hats--I attached brown circles to the sides of party hats for monkey ears.

Monkey cake. A simple enough cake idea. I am not a cake decorator!!

Mmmm, cupcakes

Happy Monkey Birthday, Peachy!
