Monday Fun-day! Party Planning!

This week my Monday Fun-Day thing is party planning! I know its not everyone's thing but it is mine! I love to plan, coordinate, delegate(if I have to), and execute a good party or event. I guess its my upbringing as a "carnie" coming out in me! (I guess I haven't written much about that... I might have a post about it later.)
Anyway, Joe's 1st birthday was on Saturday and we're going to be having a family only party this coming weekend to celebrate and have a time of prayer together specifically about Joe and his developmental problems. Not that Joe really knows the difference but I thought it'd be fun for Nate and his cousin if it was a familiar theme. We're doing Curious George. I found a few cute little Curious George toys at Target in the dollar section which I love by the way. I've been on the PBS Parents website and they have tons of cool printables and ideas for kids parties using characters from their shows. Nate and I have spent the morning coloring print outs from the website. And I found this cute monkey cake video on BHG.com the other day that I'm going to attempt to do! I'm sure I'll do a post with pix from the party later so you all can see how everything turns out!

Okay, I am commenting. I love you and am so glad that you are having a party with family and allowing them to pray For Joe. I know it has been scary/overwhelming to answer well meaning questions. I love you so much and Isaac, Nate, and Joe too! I really want to see how the monkey cake goes! I think you need to win the lottery and come visit me in Peru! :)

I LOVE planning parties, too! I hope that your Curious George party goes well! If you need something in addition to the cake, you can get little mini-banana split boats from Sonic for super cheap, and then you could make banana splits!

Happy first birthday to Joe!
