Party train, continued!

Here's the birthday boy the night before the party~ showing us how old he's going to be!

I didn't want a "Thomas" party, but I had to get *some* stuff since Nova loves it all so much.

Cousin Kolby inspecting the cake~I got engineer hats and bandanas for the kids. Nova really didn't want to wear the hat. Party pooper.

Aunt Joyce's birthday artwork...

We got the take and bakes from Sam's and I thought they were awesome!

Let the opening begin!
I told him he couldn't open presents unless he wore the hat... mean ol' mommy...
Here he is with Kolby, Aunt Joyce and Grandma Lucille~

Lots of great loot~ mostly train related of course!
The boys had a lot of fun. Here they are playing with Ramone's paint shop from Cars.
Can you hear them spray painting? Pshhh, pshhhhhhh! LOL~

One more look at the cake... I thought Nova would want the engine but he requested the caboose.

Make a wish!!

Ugh, black icing!

The destruction, I can't bare to look!

Ok. I had to post this. This was not planned. My dad asked for a piece with a tree. I cracked up when I saw it tho, and had to rotate the pic for ya...
(got wood?)
And guess who's feeling better? Yes, Miss Melly.... and she's giving me hugs.
Still more to come!! Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments on the cake, : )
