I spent the afternoon photographing the boys’ baby clothes. As much as I love taking their old things out every now and again to reminisce, they’d be of more use to a mom who needs them for her baby right now.
I’ll be keeping a few special things, like the the striped t-shirt that I dressed Max in so often as a toddler and Gus’s treasured lizard pajamas (he’d wear them every chance he got … day or night).
Santa brought Gus a Fushigi Ball for Christmas. At first, he was disappointed that it wasn’t actually a magic ball that would float along in his hands. But as he was boxing it back up to return to Target the North Pole, he discovered the instructional DVD. Now he’s hooked.
And he’s already very good at it. No surprises there: he’s great with a yo-yo, too.
In a day or so, I’ll share some thoughts about my first 365 Project and my plans for 2011. For now, I just want to say thanks to everyone who followed along and especially to those who offered encouragement throughout the year.
Thank you so much!
The polar bear is Max’s stocking. The mouse is Gus’s.
Today, for the first time in either of our lives, Gus and I decorated cut-out sugar cookes. (Alton Brown’s recipe is pretty great. The only change I made was to add one teaspoon of vanilla.)
Our favorite designs of the day are Gus’s interpretation of the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon.
Great job, Gus!
