Thomas' Birthday

I am finally trying to update my blog. Things have been busy around here with the holidays and preparing for our new arrival.

Thomas had a great birthday party. He wanted a monster truck themed birthday party. We got one of those birthday party magazines in the mail that shows all the different themes you can do for a party. I asked Thomas to picked the one he wanted. He chose "Monster Jam". That is all we heard for weeks. "Mommy, when are we going to have my monster truck party?" He even started asking to watch the Monster Jam videos on Youtube (that was partially my mistake for introducing him to Youtube in the first place).

We had family and friends come for a barbeque and some fun. There were only two other kids at his party so we let them go outside and have at it with the silly string. Here is Thomas enjoying being the target.

And here is Thomas being the sprayer. Look out!

Here is Thomas' friend covered in strings.

And Thomas' other friend at the party -he was not too sure about the whole silly string thing.

Thomas got a ton of awesome presents. Many were monster truck or car themed, of course.

Here is Thomas checking out the new bike we got him. I think he was a little overwhelmed with all of the presents and people, because it did not get quite the spectacular reaction I was hoping for. But, by the next day he was riding his bike all around the house. And he couldn't wait to get it out on the open road.

Here is a picture of the cake that I made for him. Not as fancy as the Thomas the Train cake from last year, but it got the job done! Thomas kept trying to take the Grave Digger truck off the cake.

Make a wish!

We had a great time with our friends and family. I still cannot believe my "little baby" turned 3 this year!
