They are so fun and he looks way too cute in them! I got them here and they shipped straight from Hawaii SUPER FAST! Judi was awesome and when I told her it was for my Charlie's bday she popped them in the mail right away. I was super excited when I opened the package and found this book:
Turns out she is an award winning author and she sent Charlie a signed copy of her book as a birthday gift. It's a great book and all three of the kids really loved it. Read her bio...she's cool.

The plate you are about to see really deserved it's own post. It's that beautiful. I was so thrilled when I got this order and I couldn't wait to see it in person. It's fabulous!
Pink Chandelier Plate - $20
My sister-in-law sent this cute little photo clip last week. I think it was supposed to be for Nora but really she should know by now that if something pink and sparkly shows up I might claim it. It's perfect for photo opps!
Chocolate for Hollie Mini Bag Tag - $5

My niece set the "Kid's Table" at my mom's house. Doesn't it look lovely? Wonder where Nana got those great plates for all the grandkids?

Here he is at the Author's Tea they had the other day. They each wrote a book and had it "published" and then invited all the parents for a reading. It was too cute and he did a great job.
He's our analytical, rule following, fact memorizing, speed reading super kid. He's never been one to really use his imagination...he's more about the facts BUT his story totally blew me away. It was so cute and very creative!
We took him out tonight all by himself. Just me, Nathan and Graham. We NEVER do that. The poor G hasn't had any alone time with his mommy and daddy since 2003. He LOVED it. We went to dinner and to a movie. We really should do it more often. Isn't he freakin' adorable??? I just love this little man!

A month or two ago I made some shirts for Nora and Charlie. I posted them on this crazy blog and a few minutes later I got an order. I explained that I hadn't even washed our shirts yet...I had no idea whether they would hold up...I hadn't given much thought to selling them. Still, she wanted a shirt and so I made my first t-shirt sell. And then came another order and another. I still feel like I haven't put them through a long wash and wear test but so far all of our shirts have held up very well. Most of the people that have bought them so far have not cared much about the long run b/c they have been purchased for newborns that will grow out of them before they wear out or for special occasions. I wash our t's inside out in cold and then lay them flat to dry. I throw them in the dryer (still inside out) on low to soften them up a bit.After posting Nora's "I'M FIVE" shirt I recieved a flood of emails and so I wanted to let you all know that I will definitely do white baby onesies in pretty much any design. They are $12 each. The big kid white t's are a little harder because I do not keep them on hand in various sizes SO if you would like one please give me as much lead time as possible so I can round up the right size. They are $15.
