Monkey See, Monkey Do

Yesterday was my husband's birthday, and I decided to go bananas with his party. :-) He has quite the weird sense of humor, my Bob, and given that he's thrown me some very uniquely themed birthday parties over the years (a Home Depot party, an eBay party, a Big Lots party, and a Buddha party), I felt like it was his turn.

Here he is doing is best to look like the monkey on his banner, and doing a pretty good job! One of the most fun parts of the evening was that everyone else there got into the swing of things, too, and after making Bob leave the room while we prepared, we treated him to a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday" with everyone wearing monkey masks!

This was one of my favorite shots of the evening, taken quite accidently, when one of our guests realized that Bob was standing and chatting, oblivious to the fact that one of the hanging monkey decorations was perfectly aligned with his head! (The monkey stars were aligned, so to speak.) He snapped it before Bob moved away, and I seriously think he should start using it as his Facebook photo, don't you?

Here's a shot of what happens when people really get into swing of things (I've known for years that my sister was bananas, but I had no idea they'd start coming out of her ears!)

At any rate, a good time was had by all, and my wonderful husband is another year older (but no wiser). Happy birthday, sweetheart!

Happy New year! and a belated Happy birthday to you hubby.

I love the monkey theme! We don't usually do the party thing, but this gives me a wonderful idea for my hubby's b-day. LOL

Wishing you all the best in 2010.

Thank you, Dorthy, and same to you. If your hubby has a sense of humor, go ahead and go bananas with a monkey party! :-)

Love the pics from Bob's party! How fun! Now please explain what in the world he did for a Home Depot party and for a Big Lots party. :)

I absolutely love the pictures. What a great idea. Do you mind if I borrow it? Happy Birthday to Bob.

Hi, Lindsey! For a Home Depot party, he bought me a bunch of handy home tools from Home Depot, a tool box, a hard hat, and an apron. :-)

For a Big Lots party, he asked the manager at our local store if he could have some discarded "Sale!" signs, and then bought me a few of the cheesiest things he could find in the store, like a singing cow CD and a single chipped, mismatched margarita glass.

Did I mention that my husband has a strange sense of humor?

What fun - and most definitely Bob should use that photo for his Facebook. What perfect timing is that!! Do we believe in coincidences?? Or was that too perfect!
