Every year Tommy's school has a Christmas Program where the kids sing Christmas songs. It's usually pretty darn cute and this year was no exception.
I put together the best clips into this little video for you so you can pretend like you were there. That kid loves eating jingle bells. What is up with that?? Also, I apologize for the shaky camera work. I was laughing too hard at his sweet dance moves. Andrew said 'Why would he want to get down to Silent Night??' Here's the video from last year (eating the same jingle bells) if you would like to compare.

The Sunday after Tommy's birthday party was Jack's birthday party. We got the invitation for Jack's birthday party and we were like Oh crap! We gotta get Tommy's invites in the mail!
Jack's birthday party was at Fundamentals in Indy. Oh man, did Tommy love this place.
We always know how much fun Tommy has when we go places according to the breakdown he has when it's time to go. This was one good party!
Thanks Staffords!! Happy 3rd Birthday Jack!
Tommy is one cute kiddo. So my last post will consist of pretty much all pictures of just him. Many people took pics of the little guy that day. There are a lot so here we go...
We had to change his shirt because he had chunks of frosting and cake all over it. Andrew chose his Batman shirt with the cape. Perfect choice. It matches the frosting leftover on his cheeks.
Look at that little cutie sitting at his new table. What a smile.
Happy 2nd Birthday, Thomasaurus!!
Part Two: The People
We invited pretty much everyone in our guest book because last year was semi-disastrous what with the Hand Foot and Mouth and the face rash. So this year's party was supposed to be somewhat of a redemption. So we invited everyone thinking also that since it's December, a lot of people would probably be sick. When the RSVPs starting coming in, I didn't think anything of it. Then about a week before the party, I started total them up and holy crap, we could have 50 people! YIKES!
Then as December goes, many people got sick the week of and we ended up with a much easier number of 30. Phew! Still quite a raging party though. Here are the peeps that we captured some pictures of...
The Play Room was crowded all day. The Deichmans came and brought their 4 and 3 year olds, Joe and Elizabeth. You can also see Katie and Harper in the background.
Wyatt was there but I'm sure you already knew that. Tommy's not going to have a party without Wyatt being involved. But I wanted to post this picture because I thought it was funny. I have no clue what is going on here.
We were worried about Tommy being timid in front of so many people at the party but he totally loved the limelight. We shouldn't be surprised since he came from two limelight-lovers. But we were. He loved making everyone laugh while opening gifts. What a cutie.

It's party time! Tommy's birthday party was this weekend. What a great time. I'll have to split this birthday party story into several posts. So here we go...
Let's talk about theme and decorations first. Tommy is a huge fan (like every other boy his age) of the movie Cars.
There might be some blurring that I did here after the fact. Just maybe.
The night before the party, I took some painters tape and laid down this sweet race track around our house.
Tommy got a battery powered Mater from Grandma and Grandpa the week before so he drove it all around the track.
Around and around and around... The track was a major hit with Tommy.
I got his cake from Target. We have lots of fancy cake places in the area but I decided not to spend boatloads of money on cake or cupcakes that Tommy can't even eat. The Target cake turned out super cute too. Thanks for the suggestion Claire! :)
Cricut. It's pronounced cricket, not Cry-Cut. Don't make the mistake I did and sound like an idiot at the store. :)
I also made Tommy T's shirt with some stitch witchery. He was not happy about having his picture taken here. The shirt turned out kinda cute but I still think those jeans Andrew got him are the CUTEST. Such a stud.
Stay tuned for more birthday posts...
