Party Pics

I will give Mattox the spotlight one more time here and then I'm sure I will be posting amnio results next week for you.

A friend told me today that God answers the little prayers too.  Absolutely.  Earlier this week there was an 80% chance of rain today.  I called the train rental people and they told me to "wait it out".  I am not one for rescheduling things... mainly because I'm doing good to get them done the first time.  So I just prayed all week - that Mattox's party would be great.  I personally needed a good fun day too.  Then by Thursday, the chance of rain went down to 20 and 10% and then sunshine and a high of 70 degrees.  Hallelujah!  So the train came.  And I was not feeling well Thursday and Friday, so thank you Gigi for everything you did while I rested!!!!!

Thank you to everyone who came! He has opened every single gift and played with them all after his nap!  I think the kids loved the train - but oh my - Mattox really LOVED the train.  He cried when it left.  He surprised us by blowing out the candles - we really didn't think he knew how yet.  I'll let the pictures do the talking.  Happy 2nd Birthday sweetie pie!  I ordered a DIY kit from Etsy and printed everything myself = super easy and cheap!

Crying after the train left :(
 



I did not post any of his friends because I never know if their moms are ok with their child's picture being on the internet.  so i try to leave those out.  AND I could not get Mattox to stand still for 1 second to take a decent picture of him smiling... he only had eyes for the choo choo!  Thank you again everyone for making his day so special!
