Gifts To and From

Today turned out to be a very laid back, productive day.  AJ, Sock Monkey (AJ's new partner in crime) and I met Kate for lunch at Panera.  I had their Strawberry Poppyseed salad...amazing!  I really felt like a stay at home mom this week meeting AJ's friends at the park for play dates and meeting Kate for a nice lunch in the middle of the week.  From Panera we ventured to Babies R Us where AJ took possession of the coolest toddler invention ever!  It is pictured here.  It will save many tears as it blocks the soap and water from his face during bathtime.  Someone is a genius!   

I also made a couple photo holders as gifts for Andy's cousin who just got confirmed in the Catholic Church...when you can't find a religious gift that doesn't seem lame to a teenager...I say...make photo holders!  Random, I know, but I was at a loss for what to do.  

I also snagged a cute Doodlebook frame for Andy's other cousin that is graduating from High School tomorrow.  It has a pad of pages that act as a frame that you can write or color on...I think this is dorm worthy for a recent grad...don't you...we will throw in a few dollars and I am sure she will love it!

And now to the gifts FROM.  I have the greatest little sister ever!  I just received a fabulous book I oh so subtly requested in the mail!  I can't wait to get started on some new projects!  I Love you sis!!!

Most welcome! Happy early birthday! So how does this invention work that keeps soap and water out of the face? I couldn't tell from the picture. Maybe a picture in action is needed?
