New Year's Eve with my little Brendan-boy ...

I was invited to spend New Year's with my Brendan-boy again this year. We did this last year too and I loved it so much that I actually requested a repeat. Dylan and Kelly were able to go to a friend's party, and Brendan and I stayed at his house and played until it was bed time.
Brendan is so much fun to play with. He is a really easy child to care for because he is just happy down to his toes.
Dylan and Kelly had picked up a few special tracks last week that helped them to design a better layout for Brendan's train table. He just loves it.
There are bridges and tunnels and Cranky is there to help with any major repairs that are needed, the lighthouse is working, the switch tracks are in place ...
Brendan will play and play at this table for the longest time.
Last night, Brendan kept insisting on an unreasonably LONG train (like all the kiddos have done!) that kept derailing. So since Brendan would not listen to me about shortening his train, we just cracked up every time the train crashed (always on those tight turns!).
This little be speckled engine is BRENDAN. I was able to order him a special engine with his name on it. Sir Topham Hat is the driver of this one and Brendan's name is on the bottom.
See it?
Brendan has a very good belly laugh when he is deeply amused.

Notice him cracking up (below) at another wipe-out.

This child plays with all of his heart ...
After we played for a few hours, we got ready for bed, read "The Gruffalo's Child" and got tucked in for the night. It was a wonderful way to spend the last day of 2015.
