Boys and Toys

Not much crafting going on around here. I've been cleaning my craft area, which took two whole days — sorted a mess of fabric by color and realized that I could sew for two years straight and not need to buy anything new. Help, someone stop me.

And, we're in the middle of birthday season around here, with five birthdays in about five weeks. These photos were taken by my sister at my dad's birthday party. My dad has been trying for years to find the pedal car of his childhood and he finally got one — handy timing for the grandkids. At the same time he bought one to match his current hotrod. He specializes in '32 Ford roadsters with vintage speed equipment. My sister pointed out that my dad is obsessed with the past, which made me realize our interest in vintage isn't that surprising. The apple doesn't fall from the heritage tree, as it were.

Oh those two are in heaven! Why does Carlo need to walk anyway? He can just peddle everywhere Fred Flintstone style.

I forgot to tell you that C slipped down off the seat of the pedal car and I had a hard time getting him up again because his big belly wouldn't fit between the seat and the steering wheel :)

I think it's funny how much of my life I've spent trying to point out to anyone who would listen that I am NOTHING like my mother, only to realize that I am A LOT like my mother. Now I can't figure out why it seemed so important to be different than her.

My son is probably going to do the same thing. Poor boy!

I love the pedal cars. I kind of want to play around in one too. I could probably fit my foot in one. Lucky kids!

So sweet! Thank you for visiting; my guy turns one on May 3rd! How about that! Are you surviving? My boy is getting tooth after tooth and thus not napping- and sleeping in my bed again! No naps means less blogging and craft time-are you able to squeeze it in?

Yes, this fabric hoarding is a problem but each time I look at my fat quarters box I get so excited! I don't think there's any hope....
happy birthday to ALL!

I think Grandpa will have some nice helpers in the coming years. And now you will have to see how long the new cleaned up area will last. I am bad about things like, clean, then distory in the coming days.
