I know its cliche but, where has the time gone? It's hard believe that my baby is already 3! We had a wonderful weekend, starting with a family bike ride on Saturday morning and some final prep work for Sunday's big party. Sunday just flew by! Thank God for Ayi, with her cleaning up breakfast and making beds, I was able to focus on getting everything set up for Charlie's Thomas the Tank Engine themed party. It seemed like I had trains everywhere, coloring pages, books, decorations, toys, balloons, and of course Thomas on the TV! Charlie seemed to be in his element! He was very much aware that it was his birthday, and his friends coming over to play.
We kept it short and sweet, just two hours. I don't think I could handle 7 toddlers much longer than that... Charlie and his friends bounced back and forth between his room and the family room with a pit stop for train shaped ham and cheese sandwiches, fruit, and even some train shaped macaroni salad, with Thomas cupcakes and train shaped cookies for dessert. He ripped into his presents before I could even get the camera, and I've gotta say, he got some really great gifts. From mommy and daddy he got a balance bike and a couple of books, and big sister Lily, got him Belle, and really useful engine! There were other gifts from family, and Charlie says thank you very much. Being a mom is amazing, and by far the best thing I've done besides marrying my best friend. Charlie is such an amazing little boy, funny, sweet, and so smart. I could not ask for more, just watching my kids grow up and learn about the world is amazing, and I'm thankful that I get to be here with them everyday!
