Matthew was so happy that Santa left him a Thomas the Train set. He really wanted both a Polar Express train AND a Thomas the Train set. Life is all about trains. He has a wooden shape train, a Toy Story lego train, and now his heart's desire. Scamp thought it was pretty cool too.
On our way back, Matthew remembered that both his friend's in a certain state, had Thomas the Train sets and thought he really ought to stop by and play. I didn't get a picture of Gracie and Matthew playing with trains, but here is Miles and Matthew playing. Poor Miles really didn't want to share his precious trains, but agreed anyway.
Once we got home, Matthew wouldn't leave us alone until we set up the Polar Express train that Mamaw and Poppa got him. He played with it until the batteries gave way. At that point we packed it up and there it'll stay until Thanksgiving weekend.
Mamaw Sharon and Poppa Jim sent Matthew some Christmas money. With a little extra from Mom and Dad, Matthew was able to get more Thomas the Train stuff.
He was so excited to get the Misty Island Rescue.
Last night I wrestled with getting his Adventures on Misty Island set up. It's such a pain, it's going to be up awhile.
Putting the two together was double fun!
The boy has trains on the brain.
