NEW Thomas and Friends Toys & DVDs from Fisher-Price! (Christmas Shopping)

My Son Enjoying an Evening of Thomas!
My youngest child is a Thomas and Friends fan through and through: he has Thomas clothing and pjs, Thomas books, Thomas trains and Thomas DVDs!  For his third birthday party this year, he had a Thomas train cake and a Thomas-themed birthday party.  For Halloween 2013, my son has asked to dress up in a Thomas costume too!  Yes, Thomas and Friends has touched my son's heart and it is such a sweet stage in his life that I love being part of.

Now that my four other children are in school during the day, my youngest son and I have been enjoying lots of one-on-one time together.  Each morning we enjoy the outdoors together and play at the playground, visit wildlife at the local pond, walk nature trails, and play Thomas trains together!  I try to take my cue from my son and let him decide what he would like to do each day, and then make it special for him.  It's easy to see that my son is savouring our one-on-one time together as much as I am.
A Typical Day With My Son
Evenings are family time in my household most nights, starting with dinner, homework and bathtime.  When the nightly chores are completed, we create crafts together or relax with a family-friendly film.  During craft time, it's the perfect opportunity to chat and get caught up with the older kids' lives.  Some of the crafts we have created recently include a pirate ship in a bottle, and the kids have worked for weeks already to create Halloween decorations (spiders, cobwebs, gravestones, little ghosts, and more)!

One of my favourite adages is "the family that plays together, stays together", and this would be a good label to describe my family!  It takes some coordinating to get the 7 of us all together, but it's well worth it!
