Pin the Tail on the Monkey
I made this for Abbey's baby doll's Birthday party. lol It's for the Pin the tail on the Monkey game. The face was actually the front of the invitation and the background is a wipe off marker board I painted to look ... well to look sort of grass, sky and branch "ish". LOL I used a little blue star to pin point the spot the tail should go and I traced my breakfast for the banana. Abbey loved it. Daniel came home saw it and said, wow cute monkey. It wasn't until about Abbey's bed time did he finally ask what was it for. We told him Zack's birthday party and he laughed. He took a moment and said Ohhh I was wondering why we had a check written for 29 dollars and it said monkey cake, I thought it was one of your murder mystery books. LOL He's sooooooo used to me and my silliness it doesn't even phase him that we are throwing a birthday party for a baby doll ... and well it shouldn't really since we give her 3 favorites Christmas gifts and Easter baskets as well. lol. I'm just glad Abbey is still into all this. I have to say I was into baby dolls and tea parties well into my teens, lol ok, ok I still love it all. Abbey and I can play baby dolls or Polly pocket all afternoon and we still enjoy a nice "gossip" filled tea party on Saturday afternoons. Still, at the end of the year she will officially be a teen and all the silly things we do may no longer hold her attention.** SIGH** I really can't see it happening yet, Thankfully! I think I have another year or so of this magical time of innocence and little girlhood. Yet another reason to be grateful for starting this blog ... it will help me capture and remember this last year, nearly day to day of my sweet precious little girls journey into ... bum bum bum ... a TEEN! Yikes!
