Brody is One!

Brody is one! Can you believe it? Where did the time go? We had a sock monkey birthday party for him and it was wonderful to share this special day with friends and family!

The invitation! I covered our address and my phone number- you never know who reads your blog! I purchased this sock monkey kit off of etsy and couldn't have been more pleased!

The goody bags that I forgot to hand out! The tag inside the bag says Monkey Munchies and the tag up top says Thank You! By the way, I would say I spent about six hours cutting everything out! Everything came to me as a digital file, so I had it printed and I cut it all out by myself! Thank goodness there was a Jersey Shore marathon on! Yes, I love that trashy show!

The napkin holders! I mean this digital file had everything! Sadly, I didn't get the water bottle labels printed! I bought bottled water with good intentions, but I didn't realize how much work/time all of this would take-oops!

His sweet cake that made a five hour trip from Kentucky! My dad and Emily brought it with them. I sent a picture of what I wanted to a lady that Emily works with and she copied it perfectly!

The dessert table! Of course I had to get cupcakes too since the kit came with cupcake toppers! I also used a Pinterest idea for the first time. I know it's hard to see, but I put the forks for the cake in a mason jar and wrapped brown ribbon around it! I felt creative for a moment! :)

The food table! I had to share because I worked so hard on it and the food-I actually made quite a bit of it!

The birthday boy! This has been the fastest year of my life! It just doesn't seem right!

His Mater from Granna! He can actually drive it! I figured it would be a little while before he got any use out of it, but boy was I wrong. He knows how to push the button and go! We bought him the Rock and Roll Elmo and all of the additional instruments. We didn't get any pics of him with it of course, but he loves it! I highly recommend it and worth the money-especially if your child is an Elmo fan!

The smush cake before!

Time to dig in!

Waiting on him to spit that paci out! His doctor told me he wanted me to get rid of it by his fifteen month appointment. I'm going to go ahead and say that probably won't happen!

Here we go! We stripped him down to just a diaper since we knew he would be making a huge mess!

Cousin Kase helping out!

You can see the toppers and Pinterest idea much better here! I didn't realize I had this picture on here too! It's late and I should be in bed!

The smushed cake! :)

The tuckered out birthday boy! He fell asleep on Connor! You can see Brody's cute shirt here that I ordered off of Etsy too-it's a sock monkey with a red one and his name embroidered on the bottom! It is a dangerous website for your wallet!

The post party took place at the pumpkin patch! I'll post those pictures with my Halloween post! Happy birthday sweet Brody! We love you to the moon and back!
