Good times

So we had a great time at Dex's second birthday party. He loved all of it (even if he didn;t understand some of what was going on). He loved playing with his cousins, opening presents, eating lots of potato chips (it was his birthday...), playing Pin the Caboose on the Train, hugging his new stuffed dog (thanks Charlotte!), blowing out his candles and eating cake.
Having such a great time at the party made me glad for all the effort I had put in to preparing for it, and glad for the stresses I avoided. Really, though, a huge THANKS goes to my awesome brother Owen and his awesome girlfriend Marci. They helped so so so much with the prep and keeping the kids occupied while I made this enormous train cake (helped muchly by Owen - he carved out the engine and did a bunch of other stuff).

How do you like this - it's a veggie train instead of a veggie tray - hah! Nicely done by Marci and Owen.

I know a lot of people say they have the best family and friends in the world, but in my case, well...it's true.
