New Hat

Our kitchen's loss is Monkey's bath time gain. 


In case you were wondering, this is indeed the same young man who signed the wall of his playroom with 4 (FOUR) of his mother's lipsticks today.

If You Give a Pig a Party

This book was Monkey's inspiration for his birthday party this year. He decided months and months ago that this was the kind of party he wanted, and we did our best. 
 Guests were photographed in pig noses and party hats at the door. Grandma and Grandpa were good sports (as was everyone)

The cupcakes were made by a dear friend - chocolate cupcakes with raspberry filling and pink or strawberry icing, or strawberry cupcakes with strawberry cream cheese icing. The pig faces were entirely edible - made with candy eyes and edible paper. So delicious!
We decorated sugar cookies (also made by our lovely friend) with pink lemonade icing and a variety of accoutrements.
Baby Cousin M got in the pool for the first time ever. (He liked it!)

Thank you, Grandpa T, for letting us have a party at your pool while you are out of town! 
We had a wonderful day.
