Hot diggeety dog!
That was the theme of Ben's 2nd birthday party. There was a time in my son's life when his favorite thing in the world was dogs. Dogs have now been eclipsed by trains, but when I was planning the party the canines were still number one. So we had a dog party instead of a train one.
Which is kind of a shame because some variation of Choo Choo Two! would have made a cute theme.
But for my little buddy's party we had:
|Puppy dog cupcakes.|
Note: if you make these do not put the ears on the night before. When you cover them up the ears will break off and you'll have half-eared dogs.
|My birthday cake. |
Or a variation of it. The original cake, which I ate while Travis napped with a newborn Ben, was Barefoot Contessa's Plum Tatin. I didn't have time to make that, so I made a plum upside down cake out of a yellow cake mix. It wasn't as good as the tatin, but it got the job done.
|So I forgot to take the picture when the bowls were full, but we also had puppy chow, corn dog bites, MnM's, chips, and variations of home made salsa.|
|It was a gorgeous day so we had the windows open.|
Ben is signing "more" because he likes us singing to him.
The party was a lot of fun. We are really blessed with a great family and a really great little boy. Ben is one of the cutest boys in the world!
What a blessing!
