Jammies and superman!

I had to laugh the other day because I was reading Aunt Pitty Pat's blog, and she was talking about salad in a jar and meals in a jar and she thought it was so cool. I had just make my sister some pajama's for her birthday when I spied a big old mason jar....Yeah, Jammies in a jar....it turned out so cute all decorated up...I really had to roll the flannel up tight, but it was worth the effort. So now you know one more thing that you can put in those jars.





















I also mentioned in my last post that I made a bag for her too...This is a really different type of bag because it is made of vinyl....I made one a long time ago using Halloween atc's but I thought she would get a kick out of it. Especially since it is covered with pictures of their little family.






















She is all excited about using it...I had to hot glue a lining that I made out of fabric in it. All I can say is my fingers think I have no right to get near a glue gun. It was as bad as my sanding with the dremmel.

My little nephew Jace had his third birthday. His room is a toy store already so I got him art supplies. I went over on Saturday and we colored and cut and glued for over an hour. He even made a scrapbook page in his pad of paper. Julie scrapbooks and he likes to be in the room with her so he thinks it is a great ides. Now the big boy can do it too. I also sewed up a quick Superman cape...He loves it. He likes to fly.....






It's a bird, it's a plane...it's Super Jace!





















With nerves of steel he flies thru the air!





























Ok, he is done now...























While we were playing Julie and my brother in law, Steve were making a cake for my other nephews first birthday. Steve really enjoys doing it. Julie is the assistant...Pretty funny to see the big tough air force guy making cakes. I am glad he has the outlet though after seeing so much war time.



















Pretty good eh? Ok I am done talking now....night all.
