WIP - Planning the Big Birthday Bash & A Giveaway

My little guy's 5th Birthday is tomorrow, so Saturday is his big birthday bash.  I'm calling it this for several reasons:

1. This is his first "real" birthday party with friends.  All of his other parties have been just us as a family. 
2. I haven't thrown a party this big before.  We sent out 17 invitations and so far 15 kids are coming.

Speaking of invitations.  Are these not the cutest invites ever!  I've gotten lots of compliments on them.  I purchased them through an Etsy shop called onlysunshinedesigns.

Lots of sewing going on to get ready for the party.
When I made the last crayon roll, I said that I wanted to make them again - say for a Birthday party.  So here I am, whipping up 20 of these puppies.  These ones are a bit different in that I made them to fit 8 crayons and added a place for a small pad of drawing paper.
Besides crayon rolls, there are wooden train whistles, train puzzles, train bubbles, lots and lots of train cups, plates, an engine pinata...
And of course, we have to have a train cake!  I'm going to make 2 of them - one chocolate and one vanilla.

Still on my to do list - bunting!
So, how about a Happy Birthday Logan giveaway?  I let Logan help pick out a little something for you guys.
Five La Femme by Melissa Crowley for Robert Kaufman fat quarters. 
To enter leave a comment on what Birthday activities you like to do (no matter if it's for you or a kids' party.) International entries welcome! 
Giveaway will close January 23rd at 6pm MST.  I will pick a random number, make sure that I have an e-mail address for you!

How in the world is Logan 5? It seems like just yesterday. Happiest of happy birthdays to him from us. Love the crayon roll party favors. You are so incredibly busy and yet you find time for such neat projects.
