I had a very good trip to the thrift store yesterday. It was a Land's End bonanza! I found a Squall jacket, a Halloween costume and a robe all for Evan. Poor Harry will just have to sit tight and wait for Evan to out grow them. Evan wore the costume all afternoon and begged to sleep in it (I was a nice mom and let him).
The costume has hand covers that look like paws. Evan insisted that his hands were covered at all times, despite how difficult it made playing with toys.
While playing in the bean box he got quite a few beans stuck in the hand covers. I had to frisk him when he came inside, he was dropping beans all over the place.
Here are a few facts about me: I am married, I have 3 lovely boys and 1 girl: Evan (eight), Harry (six), Daniel (three) and Lily; I love reading (especially science fiction novels but I do have a wide range of reading interests); I dabble in many different crafts (right now I am into knitting) and I don't floss my teeth every day like I should. My eldest son has a complex heart defect and that has changed my life in so many ways (mostly good).
