I guess every birthday these days is a reminder of how fast time is flying by.  It’s hard to believe our sweet {not-so-little-anymore} Kendry is two years old.  And yet at the same time, the newborn stage of two years ago seems so far removed compared with his current giggly, chatty personality who loves and wants to be a part of anything and everything.

The "Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb" book-inspired theme came together a few months ago when Kendry and I were reading the book for the umpteenth time.  It’s hard not to love the catchy rhythm of the book.  It’s definitely one of his and our family favorites.  He loves to make monkey sounds, too, so a monkey-themed party seemed fitting.  As we were reading “Dum ditty Dum ditty Dum Dum Dum,” I suddenly thought of Dum Dums and when we got to the part of “Rings on Fingers. Rings on Thumb.” visions of Ring Pops flashed through my head.  Apples, plums, drum cakes, monkey cupcakes and everything else quickly fell into place in my visual brainstorm.

*En lieu of gifts, we had guests bring a new or gently-used book to donate to the The Children’s Book Bank of Portland. Coincidentally, World Book Day was during the week of his birthday so donating books at a party themed with a children’s book all just seemed to fit.
