Train-tastic

my husband is a sucker;)

The boys love trains, always have, probably will for a long time.  So when Matthew walked in the door with a giant box housing a big, beautiful train table, I was surprised, but really happy for the boys.  They are going to love playing with this table for quite a while.  You should have seen them all lit up while helping Daddy carry it in the house.  Here is a little video of the occasion.

He had told the boys if they were really good while he was gone away for work he would take them to get a diesel train.  They have been excited about diesels ever since they watched a few Thomas the Train episodes.  They call them “naughty.”  Go figure!  We also have been playing with their Christmas present from Nannie and Poppy a lot more; which is a Lego Duplex Thomas the Train set.

The box has a nice picture of the other trains you can purchase, one of which is a diesel set.  Matthew was all set to go out and buy that set, but the expense of those Lego/Thomas things is just not worth it in comparison to the table.  Seriously, the thing is loaded with tunnels, bridges, a huge crane, and lots of bells and whistles, literally.  With the way the boys have obsessed over the table and new trains, I would say it was a great choice.

Other than trains, we’ve hit the beach, made cakes, yes, cakes, little individual dinosaur cakes, played with Nonnie, and even went to a pool playdate with other moms’ of multiples.  Unfortunately, my camera was dying a slow death this week, so pictures are less than spectacular.  It finally died, so the videos are shot with my mom’s really sad camera.  Heck, I cannot complain, right, at least I have something.  We ordered my new camera today using all the money I made selling some baby toys and the boys 12-18 month clothes.  Yay!  Get stuff out of the house and garage and get a new toy for Mommy!
