I know I'm about a month late on this one, but in the Springer house we celebrate birthdays when it's convenient for everyone to join the party. Besides, does a two year old REALLY know that it's his birthday? Nope, not this one.
We had everyone over for a fabulous dinner of chicken enchiladas (thanks sis for the recipe...people were RAVING about them.)
When we went to Utah a few weeks ago my mom got Jack hooked on Choo-choo's, so it seemed appropriate to have a train cake for the big day. NOTE for any one wondering: I used Twinkies as the train cars, tootsie rolls as the rail road ties, mini oreos for the wheels, and a mini Reese's peanut butter cup stacked on some shaped starbursts for the smoke stack. I had a blast trying to be creative on making a miniature model train out of candy...and all the kids LOVED it! For the adults enjoyment that cake was four layers with a hefty butter cream frosting and raspberry filling. delicious.
Needless to say Jack loved the cake and kept pointing out the "choo-choo" on it.
Scotty had to help blow out the candles because jack wouldn't get near the "hot".
Grandma Susie and Grandpa Terry gave jack an awesome radio flyer tricycle with a handle on the end so we can push him around until he learns to pedal on his own...I'm tellin' ya, people have thought of EVERYTHING when it comes to toys! He also got a Cars helmet, and if you all knew how much this kid LOVES Cars and McQueen, you would know how cool that is.
Even though it was dark, cold, and raining, we had to try this thing out...He's looking pretty sporty on this bad boy.
