Preston's Birthday

Preston turned two years old yesterday! Where does the time go? To celebrate, we invited family and a few friends over to our house for dinner, cake, play time and social time. The party was a success and the Birthday boy was super excited. We had a "Thomas the Tank Engine" theme for the party. Each room in the house was a different station or part of the Thomas Adventures on the Island of Soder. We even had Thomas greet Preston at the door (thank you Carolyn for the awesome sign).

Here is Preston playing with a few of his friends. The table is filled with home made Thomas and friends coloring pages. This was a big hit with the kids.

Here is the Birthday cake complete with Thomas hard at work on the track.

Here is Preston eating cake and ice cream with his friends, Eli and Micah.

These are our dear friends, Drew and Lindsey. They came over to the Dalbey house early to help clean - thank you so much!

Here is the Dalbey Trio with Grandad Denton.

Here is Preston upstairs playing trains with his friends. This is where he spent a lot of his time at the party!

Here is Preston opening a few of his gifts. As you can see, he had many 'helpers'. A big thank you goes out to everyone who gave Preston something special for his Birthday.

What does the Birthday boy do on his Birthday - he plays with Trains!

I also want to say Thank you to Grammie and Papa Dalbey for watching Preston yesterday afternoon so that we could prepare for the party. I am so sad we didn't get a picture with you at the party. We need to take a photo with you very soon. I also want to say thank you to the Duke family for bringing coolers with ice and to Carolyn for helping clean. I am so thankful for such loving family and friends.

Oh yes, Preston update: He is now 3 ft tall, loves to play with trains and/or trucks and is working on being potty trained. I will have to write about that later. I am excited for another year with our sweet boy.
