Bright Eyes is about to turn 5.

He definitely knows what's going on this year. We're having a party at a park, with a Thomas cake and balloons. He knows that he's getting presents, and he has strong ideas about what should be in them!

Grandma sent him a lovely little bridge for his train set, so I got him on the phone to say thank you.

He held the phone and said, "Oh, Grandma. Now I need James, Henry and Edward trains."
