My life has been taken over by Thomas the Train.

More importantly, Christmas has been taken over by Thomas the Train.

London is going to have a huge Christmas this year. Trust me it's nothing that we have done. I am all about spoiling my child. Hell, I paid the big bucks just to bring him into this world. Could that possibly be considered spoiling him? My family is the ones spoiling him this year. Did I mention he is the youngest (and most fun) of all of my nieces and nephews. The others are all interested in video games or clothes. London is still fun, so everyone in my family has decided to spoil him. 

My entire family is planning to come to my house and spend the night for Christmas Eve/Day. For those who don't know me, I am the 4th of 5 kids. All of my siblings, except my lil bro, have husbands and wives and kids of their own. So I have 10 people coming to stay with us for Christmas and I AM PUMPED!! It will be just like Christmas back in the day when I was growing up. There will be no Cabbage Patch Doll's but I'm hoping Santa will bring at least one My Little Pony for my 7 year old niece. 

London is obsessed with Thomas the Train right now. If I hear "choo choo" one more time it is completely possible that my head will explode. When I wake up in the morning the first words I hear over the monitor is ALWAYS "choo choo." He can't remember the color red but he can distinguish the difference between Thomas the Train and Chuggington. Thomas = "Choo Choo" while Chuggington = "no no no no". He is obsessed with the Chuggington  theme song though. It might as well be 1 AM at a NYC dance club every time that song comes on. "Chugga Chugga Chugga Chugga Chuggington" but I digress. 


What is London getting for Christmas?

Come on we all need a break from Thomas the Train every now and then. 

He is getting a lot of other cool stuff too, but these are the main things. I had to tell my sister Lori that she was not allowed to do anymore shopping. However even after I said that she managed to find him Thomas the Train Christmas Pajama's. She is a crazy, I can't stop her!!

Thankfully, I finally finished Christmas shopping for my nieces and nephews. Christmas is finally ON at our house. The tree is up and Christmas has been bought, bring on the fat man in the red suit because I AM READY!!!

My son is also a Thomas junkie! He's now 4 and no signs of slowing down, although he is now brancing out to toy trains that professional railroaders have. He is all about trains. Enjoy it, you're right, this is fun, not like video games, etc!

One should never doubt the power of Thomas! This is such a cute post. I think your precious little boy deserves to be spoiled every day of his sweet life. Christmas is going to be a blast for you so yay!!!! Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas! I'm sure you will be tweeting throughout so I'll look forward to those. xx

Oh Dear, I'm afraid you may not know how bad this will really get when we all get there with our "Thomas" gifts! Love, Mom
