Partyin' It Up, Sock Monkey Style

We had Hudson's birthday party Saturday at my parents' house and it was fantastic! I am so thankful to all of our family and friends who came out to help us celebrate! Here are (a ridiculous amount of) pictures from the big day.....

I got SO busy putting things together beforehand that once everything was in place I totally forgot to take pictures of the completed project! UGH!

I took this picture before reattaching poor monkey's arm...notice it's hanging a little low. I had to wet it and put it back on. :)

The cupcake tower! I got all of the cute toppers, wrappers, banners, food labels, welcome sign, and invitation from Etsy. (they were digital files and I had to put everything together) His outfits also came from Etsy.

The cookie favors. They were made to go with his cake. The blocks also came from Etsy. :)

This amazing smash cake came from Mad Hatter Cakes in Jacksonville. They did a fabulous job with it, as well as the cookies, and special cupcakes.

Birthday boy already yawning.

Cousins Crystal & Logan. He is 5 weeks younger than Hudson, so his 1st birthday is right around the corner!
(Also notice the banner behind her had all of his monthly pictures on it. Didn't get a picture of it, but it was too cute!)

Hudson loves Chick-Fil-A, even though he usually gets the grilled nuggets. :)

Crystal's other boy, Garrett. He just turned 3 and is so good with Hudson! And Hudson loved him!

Outfit change! Our smash cake outfit. Everyone died laughing! He loved every minute of it.

Love the look on his face.


I love this sweet boy!

And here comes the silliness.....

Hat's on one minute.....

Off the next!

Like I said...silliness.

Present time! He got so many wonderful gifts!!

Garrett was a great helper!

He loves his piano. He has to learn to play like mommy. (mommy needs to start playing again!)

Some party guests (and the only picture my Uncle and Dad are in! Dad's on the right.)

Checking out his sock monkey towel.

Hard to believe this big boy is 1!

Love him!

I am so upset that I didn't get pictures of everything all set up. We had a candy buffet/beverage table that was too cute. We had various brown/red/white candies to go with the color scheme, as well as "monkey juice", glass bottled cokes, and adorable personalized wrapped bottled water. It all looked so amazing (thanks to my awesome parents) and I wish I had managed time better so I could have taken more pictures of it all. I know for next time. The party turned out just as I envisioned it and it couldn't have come together without my mom and dad. I can't thank you enough for all you did!!!

It was an amazing party and I am SO grateful to everyone who came and showed their love for our boy. We truly appreciate you more than you know and are so thankful for you all.


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I enjoy reading every single one of them!!
