Thanks for stopping by! Did you know I am a Chuggington Conductor, which means I keep you up to date on all things Chuggington and host some pretty cool Chuggington Giveaways. First time here? Go check out the latest giveaways. Yesterday I showed you how I decorated for the Chuggington Viewing Party. Today I will warn you that there will be some super cute Chuggington Conductors pulling into the station.
Evan was soooo excited that 10 of his friends were coming over, he couldn't contain himself. All morning long I heard the Chuggington Theme song over and over and over again, and no it wasn't the DVD that was the source. It was the beautiful voice of an excited 3 year old. (For the special occasion, the boys INSISTED on wearing their party attire - Mario tees - which is a post for a later time!)
My original plan was to have the party downstairs where the big screen t.v. was. Honestly there were 2 reasons why that didn't happen:
- I just plain didn't have time to clean up the basement!
- It was such a GORGEOUS day that I wanted to enjoy the windows open and the breeze running through the house!
Of course when you are having a party with 12 preschoolers and/or toddlers it is going to be mass chaos. And the kids didn't let me down. There were kids EVERYWHERE. It was hilarious!!!
After misplacing the DVD (* cough not prepared cough*) the kids were antsy to get the movie started. We piled them in the living room with their popcorn and juice and let the viewing enjoyment begin.
With all the little bodies piled in one small space, the kids sat and watched about 4 episodes before getting antsy, which was pretty impressive. All of us moms sneaked into the dining room for a little breather and enjoyed the few moments of quiet ;-)!
This is probably one of my favorite pics of the day:
I also had the Launch & Go Roundhouse and track set up with the 4 engines for the kids to preview. As you can see, some of the boys were glued to playing with that instead of watching the DVD. Carter actually flipped out that others were playing with his choos choos and was completely satisfied when all the kids eventually left and he had it all to himself again.
Overall, the day was a success!
After all the kids left, Evan begged to color Wilson for his preschool teacher. He colored it intensely and couldn't wait to present it to Mrs. B. He proudly walked into preschool and while he was pulling it out of his bag it ripped right down the center. He was devastated but quickly the assistant teacher rescued the picture with some tape and Mrs. B hung it up on the cabinet and made a huge deal about how thoughtful Evan was. Evan beamed with pride!
