Choo Choo - looks who's 2!

Although last Friday was his actual birthday, we had a little party here at home for Mr Oliver on Sunday afternoon. You know, I had been feeling a bit so-so about having a party - a combination of exhaustion & really missing family was making me second guess myself, but I'm SO glad we did it. The look on Ollie's face when everyone was singing happy birthday & he blew out his candle was priceless.

His true birthday started with some present opening in Mummy & Daddy's bed, before he ran out to the living room to his big surprise...

We hid the rest of his presents around the room and although I wasn't sure that he would want to leave his train table to look for them, he really got into it! It was fun watching him get excited about his presents this year, as last year he was still so little and I had to do all the unwrapping!

Oliver had requested a train cake for his birthday, so we did a choo choo party. With tasty treats, decorations, great company and of course - THE Australian Women's Weekly train cake, it was a really lovely afternoon!

Thank you to everyone who came & celebrated our big boy with us and also to everyone who sent him birthday wishes from afar - we felt the love and I know Mr Oliver did too!
