Happy Birthday little man. Today is Camden’s 3rd birthday and I can’t believe it. He’s grown so much over the last year, it’s amazing. Camden is such a sweet little boy. He’s a little shy, stubborn, and knows exactly what he wants, but he’s also the cuddliest guy I know. He’ll never pass up an opportunity to get and give cuddles and share his love. He’s really smart. The boy plays games on the iPad better than me, lol. It truly is amazing to watch. He loves playing with his big sister, loves EVERYTHING cars, and loves reading his bedtime stories. Happy birthday little man. We love you so much and you’ve brought so much joy to our lives. We had an awesome monster party for Cam on the weekend and it was so much fun. Here’s some of the pictures of my little guy’s big day:
Here’s his birthday invitation with my personal info erased out for the web. I made the card myself in photoshop and bought the clip art from Etsy here
. Too cute!
Here’s a few pics of his party. We had monster grins. I purchased them on Etsy here
, printed them, cut them out and taped a straw to the back. You’ll see below that all the party guests had fun with them! For the favors for the little ones we had adopt a monster with ugly dolls and I made some monster play doh. We had monster OJ bottles, and monster cupcakes.
The kids had some picture fun before the party with some monster candy teeth. I had them leftover from the cupcakes. They’re so funny.
Here’s the cupcakes. Not the most professional looking, but fun nonetheless. Most of the inspiration for these cupcakes were found in my Martha Stewart Cupcake book found here – Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes: 175 Inspired Ideas for Everyone’s Favorite Treat
LOVE this book. So many fabulous ideas.
I found an awesome idea for the adopt a monster here
. The kiddos absolutely adored it and it was a great alternative to candy filled loot bags. This time of year it seems the kids get enough candy! Now I can’t knit, so I bought each of them an ugly doll and we drew names out of a hat so the “adoption” was fair.
To go along with their adopt a monsters, I also made the kiddos a can of monster play doh. I just took a can of regular play doh, wrapped cardstock around it and used cardstock to make the faces. It was pretty easy and a hit with the kiddos.
I had each of our party guests take a picture for this monster grin collage. I put up a piece of aqua coloured photography backdrop paper and each of our guests took a picture with a monster grin of their choice. This is a great party keepsake!
And here’s the little man himself! He had so much fun at his monster party. Happy birthday little guy!!!
