Monster's Inc. Par-tay

We had a wonderful time with grandparents, aunts, and uncles celebrating Calvin's birthday on Sunday! I think he was happy with the Monster's Inc. details. :)
The Birthday Boy!
THE DECORATIONS:
The Monster's Inc. Cups made with stickers. :)

The Pictures hanging from the light fixtures.

The banner I made out of a broken story book that I purchased for 50 cents.

THE CAKE:

My Mom came for moral support and mixed up the various colors. I was so happy with the way the cake turned out! It was one layer of dark chocolate cake and one layer of butter cake.

Blowing out the candles - he still has a hard time with blowing but he managed to get 1 or 2 out while spitting a little on the cake. :)

THE PRESENTS:

He enjoyed his party and was so expressive! He loved the cake and the presents the most. :) Check out Stephanie's blog for a pictorial progression of eating cake. We had such a fun day! Pictures from our family day yesterday to come. :)

You did such a great job on the decorating, especially since I know there were no monters, inc. birthday stuff out there. Good thinking with the stickers on the cups.
