Check out all this monkey business. I am sooo glad the "monkey-party-in-a-box" came through. He honestly would have been happy with anything though--that's just the kind of little guy he is. If only he could stay this adorable forever.
We played old-fashioned games like "pin the tail on the monkey" (quite hilarious actually), and "who can make the best monkey sound". The kids also made a monkey craft I found online. It was a great reminder that kids don't require bells and whistles to have a great time. Simple is good.
We ate these cupcakes with this frosting and loved them. Even though they are from scratch they didn't take much longer to make than a boxed mix, especially with the help of an electric mixer (great Christmas present!). Definitely worth the extra 10 minutes. Yum!
Note: I'm sure you've noticed a few candles are missing...well I had the flu and a few things slipped my mind like candles! Lame of me I know but he did have trouble blowing out one candle so I did feel a little better then :)
