Benson's First Birthday Party

We had Benson's first birthday party this weekend in Lubbock. He had a monkey theme party, because he's our little monkey :)
Diana Rutherford made our birthday cake and she is super awesome. The monkey looks exactly like the "theme monkey." He LOVED his birthday cake. He's never had anything sweeter than fruit and he dug right in. It was quite entertaining to us all.
Little bit of decoration. I made a mobile with Benson in his monkey costume.
Candy Bar/Party favors for guests
more decorations
Really really yummy monkey sugar cookies with candy bananas.

Again, he loved his cake. It was so cute to see him first take off the icing and lick his hands all over. Then, he dug his hand into the cake and took big handfuls of cake right to his mouth.
We can't believe a year is already here. I feel like we just brought him home! It has been a wonderful first year with Benson and we are so blessed. Praise God for a healthy little boy :)

Benson's party was so much fun. Thank you to everone who was able to come to it. Benson did love his cake and he also did really good opening presents! We have had the best year of our lives. Cristy has been the world's best Mommy and has constantly made sure that Benson's needs are met. The greatest gift Benson received is to have Cristy as his Mommy!
