Not much to say, except to provide some photos of the grand day.
And that is pretty much what we think too.
So let’s talk a bit about this otherwise extravagant gift. We have friends who have a train set and Henry is in love with all things Thomas right now. Perfect Christmas gift!
So, off I naively went to Toys R Us…
and just about had a heart attack.
Train stuff is EX.PEN.SIVE.
As in, ridiculous expensive.
Luckily, I thought to check Craigslist.
Found (an obviously wealthy) family in Santa Barbara who were selling all of their kids’ Thomas and Brio stuff.
The train table.
TONS of track.
Die cast trains.
Anything and everything you can imagine that has a licensed Thomas on it…they had it…
and sold it to us.
In case you don’t know, we *easily*…EASILY….scored about $1,000 worth of Thomas stuff.
I normally wouldn’t spend over $100 on my 2 year old…but this deal was too good to pass up. So it has sat in our garage for the last two months…and I definately convinced Henry that what he wanted Santa to bring him was a choo choo train set.
The gift was a hit.
I haven’t even seen the kid for three days.
