Choo! Choo!...

Guess who's turning 2?!

This kid!!

I seriously CAN NOT believe that he's turning 2.  I know I said that when he turned 1, but time really does fly!  I feel like he should be turning 1 again!!  Can we make that happen?!    We can't?  ::Sigh::  Well, then can someone PLEASE tell me when the terrible 2's stop?  He's been in them since about 15 months and they are intensifying the closer we get to 2!!  The boy has been swinging on my very last nerve lately!!  Buuuut...then I look at this sweet face and forget all of that.  Good thing for him he's so darn cute!!

See?  He's so darned cute!!  

I can't really tell if he's enjoying this or wants it to be over!

The party planning is if full gear for his 2nd birthday.  I decided to do a train themed party (hence the title of this entry).  How can you not smile when you hear/see "Choo! Choo! Choo! Look Who's Turning 2!"  So cute!  Plus, one of his favorite things is a train.  We have some that through the city we live in and he loves to mimic them.  However, do you KNOW how hard it is to find train themed party supplies that isn't Thomas the freakin Train?!  No offense to anyone who loves them some Thomas, my brother used to love him, but MAAAN!!  I decided to do my own decorations.  Ambitious, I know.  I've scoured Etsy to try and find some already made banners/decorations, but they are way out of my budget.  I really wanted to try and do something like this (scroll down for the orange/blue theme) or maybe this, but I don't know how artsy I really am.  These would take a lot of work.  Plus, I'm not having a big blow out like his 1st birthday.  Just family.  I know they won't care what it looks like.  I am going to try and make a banner, his cake and maybe a couple of other things.  That being said, I guess I should try and work on some things!

I love the train theme! I know what you mean about being ambitious but on a budget. That's how I felt about Audrey's party and I ended up finding a party package for $18 on Etsy. That included the happy birthday banner, invites, thank you notes, and....something else that I can't remember....Good luck! When is the party?

Elizabeth said...

No, I didn't. When did you send it? Did you send it to my old address?
