A Very Thomas the Train Birthday Party

I've been working a little backwards tonight on ye old blog.  My sickness from earlier in the year consumed so much of my energy and brain power and every ounce of creativity that ever existed in my being.  I still feel as though I have this huge chunk of my life missing because I was in the hospital for a full month and almost a full month at home recovering.

Thankfully though, by the end of February, I had enough energy to muster up a small party for Jacob's third birthday

This boy lerves Thomas the Train.  He loves all the trains.  If the island of Sodor were real, he would live there and kick Sir Toppamhat out of his position and completely take over.  And naturally, being the theme party-thrower I am, it seemed to be the natural party choice. I didn't get to be as creative and crafty as I usually am with my parties, but this year, I was just thankful to be upright.

A few fun highlights....

My mother-in-law painted this awesome Thomas the Train cardboard cut out, because she is amaze balls.

 He thought being sung to was the best thing that has ever happened to him.


Our Jacob is a passionate boy.  He's a deep feeler like his mama and wears his heart on his sleeve.  While he can have a temper and has definitely been more of a challenge to parent at times, he continues to bring a light into our home and our lives that wasn't there before he came into it.  He still loves to snuggle and be sung to at night.  His favorite possession is his blue baby blanket that he calls "Night-Night."  He loves to play with trains and anything that his big brother has - which means he is the biggest three year old Star Wars fan you've ever met.  Donuts are his most favorite food.  He is silly and goofy and loves to make us laugh.  And he's loud - oh so loud.  I have no idea where he gets this from.
Oh my sweet boy, I love you so.  Happy, happy, happy birthday.
