Our household spent all of last week in celebration of our greatest blessing.
I still can’t believe that he is already 2! I used to count his age in days & weeks, but they have turned into years at an unimaginable speed.
He changes right before our eyes & I love every new stage that he enters even more than the last.
Now that we’ve entered the toddler phase, he is into everything with an engine, especially trains.
I used Canva to design our one-of-a-kind invitation.
As well as these signs for the tables.
Guests entered on our sidewalk track.
Then my little birthday sign directed them to the back yard where the “ductor” greeted them.
The children played in a train that my amazingly talented best friend at Spring Creek Farm created out of cardboard & wrapping paper in under an hour! In the final crunch of party prep I had seriously almost given up on this idea, but she came early & made it happen.
I’ve always heard that children enjoy the boxes more than the actual toys, & that totally proved true. This train was a huge hit!
We had a chili cook-off & pie baking contest, with the winners receiving a jar of homemade Ethridge Family Farm salsa.
The adults played corn hole & hung out by the fire while the kids drove the toy tractor around, taking out dogs & ankles.
Then the party boy did a little demolition work with his new chainsaw (which he refused to go to sleep without!)
I am so thankful for everyone who helped to make Creek’s 2nd birthday so special. Every night in his prayers he has said “tank you Dod for Treek’s birfday”. I can’t wait to see how my little Sprout grows over the next year!
