Happy Happy Birthday Orion!

Orion, our little friend, turned one! Yes, that makes him One-derful! Sara, Russ, Leilani and more of the family and friends celebrated the birthday boy on Thanksgiving morning...perfect way to say thanks for this sweet lil boy. Linda, Sara's mama, went all out with a super cute monkey theme. Monkey puppet craft, song with other monkey puppets '5 lil monkeys and a crocodile', a bean bag throw game with bananas and a hungry monkey, CUTE monkey cupcakes and an AWESOME goody bag with more monkey paraphernalia including a Orion's Monkey Mix CD loaded with monkey songs! She used to be a pro party planner...and it showed!

Too much fun was had by all...can't even write down half the stuff, so the next time you see me, just ask me all about it!

Orion got a gluten free pie and after a little help blowing out the candle, he dug in. Then, the rest of the kiddos had their cupcakes. It's interesting to see how many different ways kids can eat cupcakes....and then there's Sam. Oh, that Sam and his cupcake...then his brothers. You MUST continue through the oodles and oodles of photos for that yummy messy series below.

And then there's Sammy!

He takes the cake...literally.

Some of my faves from the day

Those pictures of Sammie were SO funny. I did not think they could get any better. And then you topped it off with the last picture of him laying on the ground. SO SO FUNNY!! What great shots you got.

Those Sam pictures also had me HOWLING! What the heck? The kid LOVES him some cupcakes. My fave is him laying back and chilling while eating what looks like his 3rd cupcake. What a doll! All the others are beautiful too!

Those pictures if Sammy are really cute. I love the shot near the end where he look to be in a chocolate coma.
