Everett is two! Let the Wild Rumpus begin!

It has been a long time coming but my baby turned two on the 2nd of October. So on the 7th of October we traveled through a week and over two years to where the wild things are. Everett dressed as Max from one of his favorite story books. Along with friends and family we all had one wild rumpus. Photos were taken by the amazing Amy Pennington. 

The Wild Rumpus began when Everett put on his Max suit made by my mother. I was told by several people that the suit did transform him into a truly wild child.

A wild monster family.

The moishe cake was my first attempt at a fondant cake. The third time was a charm with the fondant icing, but well worth it. My niece Sav made the cute little horned monster cupcakes.

Cute little horned monsters came in a variety of flavors.

The cupcakes were a hit with Everett, he couldn't get enough.

This little wild thing snuck off to eat his monster in peace. The tent I made by recycling an extra large compost bag, yellow burlap and a frame made of PVC pipe for support.

Everett chased all that would run yelling 'im gonna get you, you better run'.

Handmade monster masks made by Sav, Erin and myself.

What can I say, this boy loves cake.
Everett's boat painted red and fitted with a table and a sail.
The opening of the presents begins. What boy doesn't love dinosaurs and robots?

And howling dogs and monkey shirts?

Oh, and even mama got a present. It was a very good day.

"Please don't go, I'll eat you up I love you so."
