Thomas the Tank Engine Playgroup

I was thinking the other day how it'd be so nice for Jonathan to play with other kids who are also CRAZY about Thomas the Tank Engine and all his train friends.

So I've decided to start a Thomas the Train Playgroup and sent out a memo to the local stay-at-home-moms network group.

For now I think we could do:
- Thomas the Tank Engine storytime
- Thomas the Tank Engine coloring
- Thomas the Tank Engine track building
- Thomas the Tank Engine DVD (one episode)
- And of course some yummy snacks

I've got a couple of responses so far, so I'm already excited! Can't wait for our first get-together!

Grand Opening of the Thomas the Train Store!

As I said earlier, my little boy twisted my arm to open a Thomas the Train Store, so that he can have all the Thomas toys he'd like...

Well, it's finally open for business!

To celebrate the grand opening of my store, I'm offering additional 10% off all orders through Apr 30, 06.

That's on top of already marked-down prices, giving you up to 40% savings compared to what you'd normally pay at places like ToysRus!

Simply key in the discount code (BLOG) at checkout.

So, check it out and take advantage of this great offer!

Ever wondered how it all began?

Hello BLOGGERS!

Can't believe this is for real...I'm so excited to be finally getting plugged in to the BLOG world!

My son Jonathan Daniel is a die-hard Thomas the Tank Engine fan and somehow he's pulled me in to starting a new business (www.my1sttrain.com) so that he can have all the Thomas toys he wants...while still keeping Mommy at home with him!!! One smart boy, huh?

I love being at home with Jonathan and watching him grow up a little every day...in Thomas' world, he only managed to say "choo choo" when we first got him the Thomas train set, but now at 2 1/2 years old, he knows all their names by heart and keeps himself busy riding them along the track...making up stories...

Look forward to seeing this site grow into a place where others like Jonathan and moms with little engineers like Jonathan can come together and share our precious moments...and bring some smiles to each other...because life is wonderful, especially when we have a loving family to celebrate it with! God Bless!
