We didn't have a cake tray long enough to hold the entire cake, so we decided just to use my kitchen table. They sell a shiny paper at the papelaria down the street and it worked perfectly for the green countryside. Below you can see the beginnings of the setup. Lawanda has a train engine cake pan that she used for her son Jed's first birthday party. It worked beautifully! The girls were SO excited!
A whole crowd of people helped blow up balloons!
Bethany tried so hard to help too!
The cake table with the balloons over it for decorations just after the cake was finished!
We handed out some train coloring papers to all the kids to color while we were waiting for everyone to arrive. All the kids (young and old) LOVE to color! It's so nice!

Judah wasn't too excited about getting his hands dirty, so I gave him a fork and he started diggin' in!
We had a great party! It was so much fun. I just love doing things like this. I'm so thankful for the strength that I've had recently to do more things like this. I just pray that it continues.
I am also so thankful for my sweet one year old! He is such a little joy to be around. I just love him!
