Crew is one!

Wow! It is so hard to believe that Crew is 1! He is such a great baby...very easy going and always smiling. He fills our lives with so much joy! This is a shirt that that I had made for him for the big party. I didn't get a great pic of the front of it but it was so cute!

....and the back!

We were singing Happy Birthday to him and he was loving it. I was a little worried how he would respond to this because he can be shy at times but it was perfect.

He was even making funny faces!

He was anxiously awaiting the cupcake.

The can't see it in this pic but the kids had sock monkey shirts on too!

He really enjoyed his cupcake!

and his milk!!!

We were trying to get a pic of several of the little kids....ha!

And another try.

Red velvet cupcakes!

We also had Monkey cupcakes!

Crew's highchair all decked out. I made his hat and my MIL and I made the High chair banner. I ordered his cute litte bib off Etsy.

Instead of doing treat bags for all the older kids, I did a sweet table. It seemed to be a big hit! My SIL helped me make the cute signs!

This was the craft table. There were coloring pages that my Dad drew and contributed and I made up sock monkey puppets for them to cut out and put together.

These were the treats for the little kids. My friend Laura and I made the sock monkeys and the banana cookies were in the baby section at walmart. I had never even noticed them before but they were perfect. My SIL, Shelley and I had to run to Walmart at 11 p.m. Friday night to get more:)

This was the remnants of the cake table. I think that was a good sign.

The presents were lined up so nicely by Mya and Emmy, my niece!

We had the party at a shelter at the park. It was perfect. My MIL made this banner, which was also perfect.

This was one tired one year old. He fell asleep towards the end of the party. It was no big deal..we opened presents at our house after his nap!

I had so much fun planning this party. Ayden and Mya have winter birthdays so it was really nice to be able to have it outside and invite more people. I have to thank, Brooke, for getting my mind in party mode. She has awesome parties and she helped me come up with some great ideas. I also couldn't have done it without my Mom, my MIL, Shelley, my SIL and Jamie, my neighbor. They helped me get food ready, watch the kids, ice the cupcakes, decorate, etc, etc. My Dad, FIL, brother, and hubby were also great helpers and runnners. Happy 1st birthday Crew!!!!!
