Well, our little Dempsey Bean is officially TWO! We had the best time celebrating our sweet little caboose with a train party last weekend!
We had cookies and cake and snacks out of a train I kinda DIY’d! I made the engine with foam core, then cut some foam core wheels to add to some wooden “train cars” that held the food! The track was cut out of black felt!
The kids played with cars and trains on Dempsey’s new play mat (that was his present from us!) and on Wilson’s train tracks! Fun times!
Below are some pics. The good ones (including the family ones) were captured by my sweet talented friend Haley! Since we were all dressed cute, we decided to have Haley take Christmas card pics before the party to kill two birds with one stone!
Hope you enjoy the pics! 🙂 I’ll link as much as I can at the bottom of this post! 🙂
Here are a few peeks at Christmas pics! We had so much fun with Haley doing these!!!
I ended up doing a funfetti cake and homemade buttercream icing, then used a wet spatula to smooth it out! (Learned that tip from my girl Mary Straton!) then DIY’d the train topper. Just paper and toothpicks! 🙂
