Build A Tent Day

I had big plans today. I was going to make birthday cards to last me until the end of the year. Well, I got a bit distracted, and built a tent for my little guy instead.  

We used his folding tent, the couch, the TV, the coffee table, and anything else I could hook a sheet to. I'm not sure who had more fun-me or him. :-)
He may have even had more fun throwing his ball onto the tent than actually playing in the tent. 

It was a fun indoor activity for a chilly day inside. I did get three cards made and two started, so I'll try to share those tomorrow.

For A Little Boy Who LOVES Big Trucks

I've been a slacker this week and haven't kept up on my posting. I also was a slacker and somehow only took one picture of my little guy is his Halloween costume (see above). I even had to take it with my cell phone. Not sure what happened. He LOVES big trucks, and since my dad (his Papa) happens to be a truck driver, I figured this would be the perfect costume. It was dressing up but was enough like regular clothes that he didn't mind wearing it all day. I drug the little guy out of bed early, so we could go show Papa the surprise costume (that's why he looks sleepy).

I had my mom secretly get one of my dad's old work shirts, so I could cut it up and make a little shirt out of it. I just had to search his closet for pants and an undershirt to go with it (it wasn't too hard since I went overboard at a consignment sale about a month ago). My dad, and all the other drivers for that matter, thought it was pretty cool. :-)
