Choo-choo


What's the deal with little boys and choo-choo trains?



Daniel, a few years ago.



Daniel and Josiah, a few weeks ago.


Karina called me the other day:
"Mom, how old was Daniel when you made him that train cake?"

"It was for his third birthday."

"Well, I just asked Reiley what cake he wants for his (3rd) birthday next month, and he said, 'A TRAIN!'."

Some things will never change.

So, I had to go hunting for the old photograph....
(Here's your pattern, Karina.)

    That looked way too good to eat and so creative!

    Cute to see and hear how those genetics carry on.

    God's Grace.

    What a GREAT memory! ...and what a cute little kid that Daniel was. (yes, he still is a cute "kid" and he still likes to play with trains.) (-;

    I never got a train when I was growing up and I always felt deprived. My brother and my sister pooled their pennies last Christmas and gave me my first electric train.
