103 Connor's Birthday Party!!

A picture says a thousand words, so here are 66,000 to describe Connor's first birthday.

We had a small group, which was great because Connor did not have to freak out. He was comfortable with everyone there, and he was a pretty happy boy all around. He LOVED his cake. Mainly the frosting :) I did not have a baby size cake pan, so it was baked in a Mandarin Orange can. Which actually worked out great. I sprayed the inside and the cake slid out when it was done (better than the ones in the actual cake pans). Obviously I do not have a future in cake decorating, but Connor did not care how ugly his cake looked. As soon as he finished smearing frosting all over his face, we stripped him down and popped him in the sink. He was just too messy to wipe off!! The heart shaped cookie and brownie bites were a huge hit, though it was hard to keep count of how many you popped in your mouth. Katie's favorite was the snow peas. Connor got some really great gifts, but I think he loved being surrounded by the big kids as they "helped" him open his presents. Then they all had a good time "Sharing". The only thing that could have made the day better was if more family could have made it out.
Happy Birthday my little Monkey Man!!
