A Thomas Third Birthday

This year's birthday party should come as no surprise. I think I've mentioned it on this blog but if you follow me on Instagram, you know the boys (Especially Bug) are obsessed with Thomas the Train. After pushing it back a few weeks, Bug and Peanut finally had their 3rd birthday party on Saturday and Sunday.

You read that right.

I was worried I might kick myself for it later, but we threw two birthday parties last weekend: Saturday's was for family and a few friends who know my family and Sunday's was for our friends. Between the two days we had close to 50 people and like I've mentioned a bajillion times, our house is not big enough for that many people at one time. And it actually turned out ok.

I still didn't get to visit with people at the family party as much as I would have liked, but that party seemed to end sooner so I blame the lack of time.

Last year, I started working on their party in November. This year, I was so busy with my Etsy shop that I started about a week  two weeks ago.

The boys were adorable as always, once I mentioned that we were going to sing Happy Birthday, Peanut started singing for the family - it's the cutest thing ever. When the song was done and the family clapped - Peanut did too. He sure is a joyful little one.

Shortly after cake we did presents and boy were they spoiled - both days.

Two parties turned out ok. Saturday was more of a mad dash than Sunday. It doesn't help that Boyfriend decided to paint a bit Saturday morning - don't get me started on that. By Sunday's party, we pretty much had everything done and just had to make stuff that wouldn't keep otherwise.

Everyone left a little sooner than I would have liked - I would have liked to visit more! But by the end of the day we had to happy and well loved boys.

I still can't believe they are three.


  1. So cute! Those overalls! My son wore those for his Thomas party too.
    That radio flyer trike is cool! I need to find one of those!

  2. I love their little outfits!! And, you're nuts to throw two parties!! I hate doing even one!!
