Eli's 2nd Birthday Party!
This year Eli's birthday is the day before Thanksgiving so we decided to have his party a little bit early!
The theme for the party was MONSTERS! Perfect for my little boy who doesn't say much, but can do a perfect monster roar or growl!:)
But he wasn't the only little monster there...
And the monster bean bag toss was quite the hit!
As part of the party we also made Eli his own Monster Music/Bang Wall! We had guests (mostly family and a few close friends) bring an item to add to Eli's music wall (something that might make a good sound)!
This was so much fun! The kids loved it (and even a few adults couldn't resist)!
And of course there had to be a monster pinyata (made by Aunt Marianne)!
And after Eli took the first few hits at it we let all of the other kids have a turn...
And the last one did the job! Goodies flew out everywhere!
We had a good little lunch and then it was time for cake. This is exactly how Eli looked the entire time we were singing to him (I'm not so sure he liked it)...
And still thrown off by the singing I think he just stared at the candles and refused to blow them out (we had to get his sister to do the job)! He did enjoy eating the cake though!:)
And he started breaking into his presents before it was even time (notice the fire truck book he is already holding here)! He really enjoyed that part!
And overall it was a really great birthday party... we were able to be outside for much of it (Eli's favorite place to be), and it was just perfect for my sweet little monster!
