Connor turned 2 on October 23 and I can't believe 2 years has gone by so fast. We love Connor and can't imagine our lives without him now. Overall, he is an energetic and happy boy, excluding those "precious" 2-year-old tantrums we get regularly. :)
Connor had such a fun birthday, he's been singing the "Happy Birthday" song since October. We were in California the week before he turned 2 (for Ady to have her baby) so we were able to celebrate with my family first on October 20. We went to Chuck E. Cheese for games, presents, food (pizza is one of Connor's favorites), and birthday cake/cupcakes. We celebrated with my immediate family and the Smiths (Connor's friend Braden).
Claire made the cutest (and yummiest) cake and cupcakes for the party. Strawberry cake with vanilla frosting and silver sprinkles. Connor dove right in after we sang him Happy Birthday. It helped a lot that his favorite color is pink.
Connor LOVED his presents. Several Lightning McQueen cars, Mater truck, Lightning light-up shoes, a new train track set, sweaters and jammies with some of his favorite characters (Buzz & Woody, Thomas the Train, Lightning McQueen). Thanks everyone!
The other little kids had fun helping Connor open his presents faster.
Connor's favorite games were the slide, ski ball (he loves throwing things so I'm not surprised), putting the tokens in the machines, and then ripping the tickets off. He chose 4 suckers for his prizes with the tickets he won. How could the night end any better?

We flew back to Utah on Saturday the 22nd and celebrated with the Jeppsons that night. We ate dinner and opened presents - more jammies, several new balls and trains, woody and buzz action figures, and his now favorite Lightning McQueen chair.
But Connor's favorite present by far was from his Aunt Cami. A whole gallon of chocolate milk just for him.
I also took the annual picture of Connor standing next to Brad. He's grown so much!
