Super Hero Pillows

What little boy doesn't love super heroes right?! A little boy from our church turned 4 the other day and I was trying to figure out what kind of present to get him. He's always wearing a batman shirt so I thought Super Hero pillows!

First I printed off the logos I wanted......

I had just enough yellow fleece..... 

I had this old Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt.... I'm almost regretting using it b/c it was my "maternity lounge shirt" of sorts.... but it did go for a good cause! (it was an XL)


I ended up buying some blue fleece b/c I didn't have any scraps that color! And I also needed some more stuffing! Not bad huh?!

And then there's the flu...

Oh poor little Ceej..... he woke up Saturday morning at 5:00 am... coming into our room whining... This isn't an unusual occurrence these days. He almost always wakes up once during the night asking to be "tucked back in". I guess I should get on teaching him how to tuck himself in!? But this time was different.... he smelled of vomit, and so it began.

Then the stripping of the sheets, blankets, stuffed teddy bear............ before we could realize what was going on it was in our bed too. I am so thankful for JDub. He has got to be the best when it comes to the kids being sick (throwing up). He always stays with Bubba whenever he gets that way.... and well Ceej is a bit of a daddy's boy so it didn't surprise me when he hung on to him for dear life. Fortunately this was the first time Ceej has really been this way. He was sick when he was a baby but that's a different story....

I started the unending laundry for the day and helped "set up camp" in the basement. We tend to have a quarantine in the basement when one is sick; trying to keep the other child (and adult) from getting sick as well!

I tell you what.... 6:00 am is about the right time to go to Wal-mart. Yes.... I looked like death! But I didn't see very many people... and there were a couple other death walkers as well... I loaded up on Sprite, Jell-O, bread (for toast), Saltines, applesauce, and chicken noodle soup.... Just in case! There was no line.... and I had about 5 people ask if I was finding everything I needed.

So far... no one else has puked. (knock on wood). And the only side-effect I seemed to take on was an everlasting stomach ache.... I figured it was my way of getting the flu... and I am feeling much better today (so far so good!)

I am a little sad I wasn't able to attend our ladies Christmas party for church though :( We were going to relax and have a fun little ornament exchange! We were to bring an ornament that described you... and well instead of trying to find one I just made it. Guess it looks good on my tree so I'll just keep it!

I was channeling my inner grinch the other day and made the boys this....

And this morning I was feeling a little festive as well :)

Of course Ceej thought it was a snake.... and NOT a candy cane... but eh... it could be a snake too!
