I had wanted to have the party outside, but it was rainy and somewhat chilly. Last weekend would've been perfect. It still worked out fine though. I knew we were going to have lots of kids, so I used our table to seat the high chairs and I put Thomas trains on the table for the kids to play with.
I made cupcakes, cherry pie and a raspberry dessert I saw on an episode of KLG and Hoda at 3am while I was up with Isabelle (for the 15th night in a row). I wanted to get some printable Thomas party decorations off Etsy, but refuse to pay $20 for one sheet, so I made my own. Then I went to print them and ran out of ink. So, the only thing I could print was the back part of Bobby's cupcake toppers with his name on it. Blast.
My MIL bought some crafts for my kids to do, so I used them for all the kids and they came in so handy!
It was so great to have my nieces and nephews at the party. This is my nephew Joshua.
It was a fun day. Thankfully I have a great little helper who helped with the cleanup!
