So it's official, my baby is 2 years old! I can't believe how time flies!
Let me start by saying, I've never been a fan of throwing 'character' parties for my kids, but since Jack is into all things Thomas the tank engine, it was the likely choice of themes. I tried to keep the decor more vintage train but I had to throw in some Thomas for the birthday boy.

|I saw a great chili bar on celebrations at home|
that I fell in love with so when I was trying
to figure out what to serve the adults that was
still fun and rustic, I opted for this chili bar

|I love chili fritos! All you do is open up a single serve bag of fritos,|
fill it with chili and top it with your favorite toppings and
eat it with a spoon...yummy!
|I have to admit there was a little drama while I was making the cake.|
I have a hard time saying no to taking on work from clients,
so knowing that I was throwing a party for my son, I still took on 4
other orders and so there I was in the kitchen at 3am crying to my husband
that my kids always get the short end of the stick.
I equate that little tantrum to, well, the fact that is was 3am
and I was just not happy with the way it turned out.
In reality, he could care less, all he wanted to eat is
the fondant sign...of course.
that the train whistles are displayed in was my grandmother's train case.
I love that I have been able to use it for both of Jack's parties,
it makes me feel like she was there, especially because she never got to
meet him. Last year I used it for props for the photo booth.
