Over the weekend we celebrated Connor's first birthday with a Monster Party. We held it at our local YMCA, and it was an awesome time! :)
I also made mini monster waffle sandwiches. The kids could choose from peanut butter and jelly or peanut butter and nutella. I also had some plain waffles for the babies to munch on. I topped them off with candy eyeballs from Wilton that I found at Michaels.
For a sweet treat, I made chocolate covered pretzel rods. I melted up some milk chocolate chips, dipped the rods in them, used a spatula to spread the chocolate on evenly, then topped with sprinkles or more monster eyes!
And, of course, we had monster cupcakes! They are funfetti cupcakes topped with homemade buttercream icing. I used a grass piping tip to create the fun look and topped them with candy eyeballs, too!
The goodie bags were adorable! Stop by later this week for a tutorial on how I made each kid their own individual monster goodie bag to take home. :)

He spent a lot of time with both of them splashing in the water!
He had quite a few little baby friends come to wish him happy birthday!
A few of them even helped him eat his cupcake!

All of Connor's friends are younger siblings of Aidan's friends, so he had plenty of playmates to goof around with. :)
It's hard to believe that this first year has flown by. It was awesome to celebrate with our close friends (and family, too!). We are so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives.
We love you, Connor! Happy birthday! :)
