the year ends

Henry has a little bit of adventurer in him that we didn’t see in Emma. He regularly tries to fling himself off of the couch, leap from your arms to the floor and perform other crazy stunts. I’m not sure if this is because he’s a boy, the second child or just an adrenaline junkie at age 13 months.

At any rate, he surprised Marla not too long ago by climbing into the tub while Emma was taking her bath. Henry had just finished his and, as is the routine, was in the bathroom watching Emma and playing. Next thing we know the boy has his leg hiked up and is on his way over into the tub – pajamas and all!

He was as thrilled as could be (so was Emma) and spent a few more minutes playing in the tub with Emma before I took him, dripping wet, back to his room to change into PJ’s again.

You’ll also find a few pictures of the train table I built over my Christmas vacation. I needed an excuse to buy a new power tool (a jigsaw) and this seemed as good a reason as any. I based it on plans I found on the Internet but ended up changing it as I went along.

I spent about 3 days sawing, sanding and glueing and $50 dollars in lumber. Much more fun – and much less expensive – than buying a Thomas table from the store. Henry and Emma have enjoyed it immensely so far.

  1. I am disturbed that for months whenever I open the USER ROOM link Powered by Steam ..(as in Steampowered.com Steam the big game site) in my Gamespy Arcade I get your site.. any answers?

  2. Over the last 4 years many parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends have gotten our wooden toy train table plans and I have always sat back in joy while reading their testimonies and seeing their pics.

    Congratulations on creating a memorible table that your children will enjoy for years. My grandchildren have outgrown their Thomas the Tank Engine train set, but they now enjoy using the table for mindstorms, K’nex and other creative endeavors.

    Thanks for your sharing,
