Kid Snippets: Casts and Kisses

The tree is starting to remind me of The Giving Tree. I used some of Simmy's wool for his hair. I was thinking of Salley Mavor's Wee Folk while stitching — wishing I could be as lucky as Mimi.

I took some photos of C sitting in a chair and then drew this sketch. I traced it onto felt, cut it out and started stitching. He chose the colors.

Thanksgiving day surprised us with a visit to the on-call orthopedist — green breaks on both the radius and ulna, but consolable with a lollipop.

Love is a powerful muse, even for six-year-olds.

Crazy hair day at school.

No breaks in our house yet. I don't think I could handle it, but I guess with 3 kids, I better prepare myself.
Great hair!

How'd you get his hair to do that?!?!

My guy is always having crazy hair day at school, but it is flat before we even get there!

Poor baby! My son did the exact same break first weekend of soccer this year... luckily, healed in 5 weeks though! Make him drink LOTS of milk. :)

Oh little C! Shouldn't his felt doppelganger have a little sling now? I mean it already looks EXACTLY like him - that hair is too, too perfect! Here's hoping for a fast recovery. (That is quite the hair style there! I am impressed!)
