On December 19, Dameon took the day off work so we could do "Henry stuff" all day. Right away when he woke up in the morning we gave him his gift which was a train table with all the good Thomas stuff. We've been planning this gift since the second Dameon said, "It's a boy!" so there was a great deal of anticipation going on. We were pleased with his reaction and have enjoyed watching his imagination grow over the past few weeks.
We ate a breakfast consisting of Casey's donuts (with sprinkles) and then hit the road to Des Moines. First stop: Build A Bear Workshop. Henry had never been! He chose a little dog and named him Sammy.
Henry hugged Sammy the whole way home, even after falling asleep about 2 minutes outside Monkey Joe's parking lot.
When we got back to our house, we had a birthday dinner of meatloaf and potatoes with cupcakes for dessert.
On December 28, we celebrated with our families. It was a Thomas the Tank Engine party!
(Kudos to my mom for cutting out and gluing wheels on all 13 of our train cars!)
Decorating the cake turned out to be a bit of an intense process.
Happy 3rd Birthday to our sweetie pie!!!
