The party!

Andrew and Elizabeth hanging the new Thomas ornament she gave him.


Emmie checking out some tracks


It was AWESOME!!! I can't believe how great this party turned out. First of all the little boys and two little girls that Andrew invited are the best behaved and sweetest kids there are.

having cake of course

Is she having fun or what!!!


They sat on the living room floor and had hot chocolate and pizza and or popcorn during the movie. Then we had cake and there was even time for Andrew to open up his gifts.

I threw down blankets in case there were any spills. We put the hot chocolate in covered paper cups, just like you get when you buy hot at coffee shop.



The birthday boy.




It was the easiest party ever. Some of the moms I had never met stayed and we had fun talking and getting to know each other. A couple of dads stayed so Peter was all set too. What more could we ask for.

The party favor, which I forgot to take a picture of was cute too. I bought Christmas gift bags with a Polar Express like train on the front . Inside was a train whistle, a pack of hot chocolate mix, Hershey kisses and mini candy canes. I wrote a thank you letter and tied it with a bell. on the bottom of the letter were the words.. Keep Believing.... That explains the bell.


Here is the cake. Best part , it wasn't ready when Peter went to pick it up. They did it on the spot and gave it to us for half price! YEAH!!!


SNOW!!!


And to end a perfect party it finally snowed in New England. Just a dusting, but a thrill for the kids no less.


I have some many great pictures but I forgot to ask the other moms if they mind if I posted them .
