Monkey's 3rd Birthday - Robots!

I can't even begin to tell you the amount of time that I put into this party... And no, it isn't for me and it isn't because I have too much time on my hands... Growing up my mom made every birthday and holiday special...when my kids are grown I want them to look back and remember that I went out of my way to make their birthdays special. (even if I have to stay up every night the week of their parties to get it done)

So here it is ladies my blood, sweat and...hot glue gun blisters....


Sugar cookie and chocolate lollipops handmade by mommy

A cake all for D

The bakery matched the invitation perfectly!

( This is an example of the invitation)

Some of D's favorite foods...of course the PB&J is front and center

(I painted the canvas & made the robot and rocket foam banners)
