We are family
We ventured into Hancock's for a few minutes on Friday so I could buy some much needed thread (I am using several spools a month!), and discovered that flannel was on sale for 99 cents a yard. We let Jack pick out a few prints for new pants, and at some point on Sunday he came upstairs telling me that he "needed to sew with the car fabric" and right now please. He spent a few minutes play sewing with his toy machine, and then his father made him some pajama pants using this tutorial .
Yes, you read that right, Dave made him those pants! When we make the next pair we will not taper the bottom (we used a pair of sweat pants as the pattern), and make them a little more generous in the butt area. Ugh, well, Dave will do those things. I don't make clothes.
Jack never wanted to take his Lightening pants off.
While Dave was sewing Jack was learning to use scissors. Love that Charlie Brown tongue. LOL He spent a full hour just cutting up paper and he has wanted to do it again every day since. Of course I let him. Hey, it keeps him entertained.
Let's not discuss that haircut though, ok?
Since it is sort of warm today we worked on a Christmas card photo this morning. This one didn't make the cut, and let me tell you, getting him to take a picture while standing on a background and holding a wreath? Please, never let me do that again. LOL The end result is cute, even if it did require 100 candy corns.
And one for the memory box: On the way to bed last night Jack asked Dave if he could have a muffin. "We don't have anymore muffins Jack." "But why not?" "We just don't." (Insert much whining here.) "You can whine until the cows come home, but there aren't any more muffins Jack." (Thoughtful pause.) "Well, maybe the cows could bring me muffins?"
Now if I could just get the two of them out of my sewing room...
