I don't know how many have had the opportunity to see the beautiful blankets that James and Josh love. They are both on their last leg. I have tried to fix them a few times, but it is really time to retire them. The blanket Josh loves is one that my grandma (Maga) made for me when I was a kid. I am betting it is at least 25 years old and the kid loves it. James' is a blanket I made for him when he was about 2. My sewing skills are not good so that blanket is falling to pieces. I have tried to tell the boys that we need to make new blankets. Pure distress in their face. I informed them that we can go to the store and pick out fabric together.
Today was that day. I was walked through the rows of the fabrics the boys found what they wanted really fast. After picking out the fabric and realized that the fabric the picked out totally fits their personalities. Forget the color test. I think a fabric that one picks out is a great way to determine personalities.
James' Fabric
He saw this and loved it. He proceeded to tell me all the presidents that he could see on the money. A fabric with a bunch of money. The kid is in heaven. Anything with numbers and money sums up James.

Josh's Fabric
Really.......I am that surprised?The most obnoxious looking fabric with skulls and cross bones on it. Very fitting. A little blood red on the back to go with it.
That's my boy!!!!
On the way out he told me, "Mom, I am going to have an evil blanket."
I guess this is what I get when telling the boys to pick out their own fabrics.
I just hope I can bring myself to make Josh's.

I am laughing SO hard right now! Honestly, those blankets are right on. James = numbers. Josh = evil skull bones. LOL!!! Too funny!

Perfect fit for both of them! So funny!!! I really hope you make that blanket for Josh! Well, maybe not. As soon as my boys see it they will want one!!!

Jamie N said...

That is so funny! Josh would pick that out. After all he did tell you and Brad he follows Satan and Jesus! :)

Wow. I think you should make matching pillowcases and shirts and curtains... Then they would be really awesome.

I'm completely joking!

Funny post, I can't believe how big your kids are getting! It's wierd to think that I haven't ever met half of them. Its sad how we all drift apart as we grow up, thank goodness for blogging! And I love the pictures of the "dead" baseball player, too cute!

I took Tyson to pick out his favorite material as well and he picked............skulls too. Luckily it was just black and white, but what is the deal with boys and skulls these days??
