Payson's 2nd Birthday

This blog post should have been written a few weeks ago.  I am a little behind.  My son Payson, my baby, turned 2 years old on June 23rd.  I can't believe he is 2 already!  Time sure does fly fast!  For his party we did a monster theme.  You can see the invitations that I made for his party at my other blog.  The party started out with all the kids making there own monster masks.  We used plastic plates and craft foam to make the masks.  The kids really enjoyed making the masks.

For dinner everyone made their own monster pizzas.  We used English Muffins and then had toppings of pepperoni, pineapple, canadian bacon, and olives.  The kids especially had fun making their own monster pizzas and every kid except for the two youngest ate the whole thing.

After dinner it was time to open presents.  Payson got some much needed clothes.  He also got some new toys.  

For dessert we had monster cake pops and monster cupcakes.  My mom and my kids decorated the cupcakes while I went to take Payson to get a much needed hair cut just in time for his party.  Funny story about that.  We got to the salon and walked in.  I told the stylist that we were there to get his hair cut.  We started walking back to the chair and when Payson realized what was happening he turned around and started walking toward the door.  I had to go and get him and carry him back.  The whole time he was crying and twisting and swatting her hand away.  I don't know how the stylist can cut hair with a kid moving around that much and have the hair cut look good.  I have a new respect for them.   Anyway, here are the cupcakes.  I think they turned out great!

The party was pretty low key.  My parents left the next day to visit my brother and sister-in-law in Missouri.  It was a fun party and I think that people enjoyed it.
