A Blue Monster Birthday....for BLUE MONDAY

I like chocolate Mama!

Happy Birthday Blue Monster
In our house we have monsters. There is the Blue Monster, a funny creature I sewed for Caillou when he was 1. And there is the Hairy Monster. The Hairy Monster, is an authoratitive figure of sorts. He lives in Boo-Bah's purse, and is always only a phone call away, when Caillou starts acting up. The Hairy Monster, is a friendly monster, but he is also a "don't mess with your Mommy sort of Monster" The Hairy Monster is spoken of daily, Caillou gets great enjoyment from telling tales of the Hairy Monster, however he isn't to eager to actually ever meet the Hairy Monster!!!! Ever so much attention is paid to the Hairy Monster, so we thought that perhaps the Blue Monster was feeling left out and was in need of a celebration. So we made some treats, blew up some balloons and hosted a monster shin dig!
Thanks Sally for creating Blue Mondays!


  1. I forgot about the blue monster. I wonder who started hairy monster! Not Boo-Bah, she is too dignified for such a silly thing.
    This should be a Blue MOnday post.

    Hope you had a good day. I am going furniture looking tomorrow.
    Post a picture of Patti Cakes.

    Boo-Bah aka your Mama

    I don't think I would want to meet up with the hairy monster either. LOL! Love that story, Ashley. Very clever.

    Happy Blue Monday...
