Thomas and Friends "King of the Railway" 5th Birthday Party

Pin It


 
Once again, for the 3rd time, my son wanted a train-themed birthday party for his 5th birthday.  He is still really into Thomas and Friends and the new movie "King of the Railway" with the new "Rocket" engine, Stephen.  No amount of persuasion could change his mind about not having another train-themed birthday party, and it HAD to be Stephen the "Rocket" engine.  Since there is nothing out there with that theme, I had to make my own.  This year I had to keep the decorating to a minimum, as I was expecting a baby any day (he was born 2 days after Lee's birthday, 22 days early!), and I was pretty uncomfortable and tired by that point.

The decorations consisted of paper fans with images cut out for the centre.  We also used some black and yellow streamers and balloons.

I decided to make a pull-apart cake using cupcakes with the thought that it would be easier than decorating a whole cake!  I love the way it turned out!  I just printed out a photo of Ulfstead Castle as a background and used his Stephen "Rocket" train with the addition of a tall funnel made using a black straw.

Our Baby Boy has arrived!!

Pin It



 
Our baby boy has surprised us with an early arrival!  Welcome Baby Andrew!!  He was 22 days early, arriving on Sunday, January 26th at 2:31pm, weighing 6lb 14oz and 20 inches long.  Because he was early and jaundice, we had to stay in the hospital for 5 days.  It is so nice to be home now and enjoying our new addition!  Now to get the nursery painted and organized....  :)

Happy New Year!! Kid's Year In Review Interview Printable

Pin It


For the last couple of years, I have had the kids fill out a New Year in Review Interview.  It's been fun, and I love looking back at it every year.  This year, since they are a bit older, we will have a special celebration after dinner with special dessert, drinks, and games.  I even bought a few party supplies as well to make it even more special for the kids.  This will be a perfect time to bring out the Year in Review Interview for them!  (I may even go so far as to video them filling it out!)
 
This year, I made my own printable!  Add a small photo of your child to make it even more fun!  Feel free to download my 2013/2014 Kid's New Year in Review Interview Printable for your own personal use.
 
Do you have a special celebration planned to bring in 2014?  If you have small children, what sort of fun celebration, if any, do you have planned?  This year I'll be just over 8 months pregnant, so I may actually be tucked cozy in my bed when midnight strikes!!
 
Happy New Year!!

Kids Chore Chart - Boy Version

Pin It


 
Last year I shared my daughter's kids chore chart that I made for her as well as an altered clipboard.  I also mentioned that I would make a chore chart for my son as well.  Time seemed to have gotten the better of me, but I finally have a boy's version; though it's kind of regal with beautiful swirls and crowns, but I loved the color!  :)  Click here to download.
 
You can check out my previous post on how our system works using these chore charts.
 
My son just turned 4 in January, so he now has a few more responsibilities added to his chore chart.  Believe it or not, he loves to help vaccum and scrub the toilets!  Tonight he even set the dinner table all without any prompting from us!

And incase you missed the Kids Chore Chart - Girl's Version, here it is:

Kids Chore Chart - free printable!
 
I have so many other things I would love to share with you, but life is so busy right now that I just can't promise I will be posting daily or even weekly; but I do appreciate each and every one of you for sticking by me and reading my blog!!
 
Thank you so very much for your loyalty and support!  Please feel free to drop me an email or leave a comment!  :)
