More shirts

Some new shirts

Merrick's is a crab and it says "Someone's crabby"

and Memphis has a Dear and it says "Little Dear"

But I'm pretty convinced that these are girl shirts because they are a little snug on my boys. Memphis looks okay but Merrick's is definitely a girl's shirt because it's tight around the arms which is a huge sign that it's a girl's shirt. Oh well, still pretty darn cute.

From the STUDIO

I've been staying busy with a few crafts around here especially with Christmas just around the corner and so here are a few of my favorites from the "Studio" for the boys.
Pirate stencils with acrylic paints.

I had to do matching shirts for the boys mostly because these colors turned out so well together.

Merrick kept moving so I could not get a good picture of his pirate pants that I sewed together out of some super cute pirate flannel fabric but they are both mine and Merrick's favorite pants.

Down below Merrick is showing off our first pirate ship shirt we made together. He choose the colors and I painted. He's becoming quite the artist.What love!

Fill in the blanks

Here Merrick is feeding Memphis cereal puffs that have been tested through the stapler first. If they didn't get crushed to tiny little bits from the stapler then they passed the test and Merrick would slip them into Memphis mouth. Merrick thought of this all on his own and just for the record there were a lot of cereal puffs that did not pass the test. Now the real question is do I tell Sean about what happened to his stapler or do I wait until he tries stapling something and crumbs come seeping out along with the staples? Hmm.

A lot of this

There has been a lot of this going on around here where the boys just sit next to each other and play quietly. In this case this great puzzle that my friend Johanna swapped with me a while back. I love this picture and how both boys are just enjoying each other's company. It's all about living in the present for these guys. Ohhh how I love them soo much.
