Prepare to be jealous!!! efirechild & I decided to do more than the required amount so there are lots of pictures! The book she chose for us is "Walter the Farting Dog" this is such a perfect choice for my boys! My boys are 4 1/2 and almost 10 so it was geared toward my youngest but my oldest has been enjoying it as well!

Here they are reading it together this morning


Here are most of the goods together. A HUGE dog pillow that David is in LOVE with! A "Fart Free Biskwee" box that will be used to keep David's treasures (rocks mostly) in, 2 dog treat recipes which my oldest is excited to make for our pooch, The book, another book "Everybody Needs A Rock" and the"I FART" bandana on the pillow dog (there is another one for our dog!).


Our dog with her bandana (so appropriate for her!)


magnets with pictures from the book (I put the measuring tape so you could see how big they are!)


Super Awesome hand drawn Walter the Farting Dog shirt!!!!

Being the only girl in a house full of boys I can say it's always about FARTS, we love Walter and all of his adventures. Another gross out book along the same lines is Dr Dog. Great idea for the pillow and bandanas, well done!!

Gkswife knows how to spoil a kiddo! VERY pic heavy cause she sent so much amazing stuff!!

Here are the books. One little penguin and his friend was the main book but she supplied several others for us.  The men in my house are all obsessed with penguins... not kidding... my husband has a pengin paper towel holder that makes penguin noises and hundreds of other odd penguin knickknacks.


Future Book Nerd T-shirt


I spy bag.  E found 2 uses for it!



Pillow Case (E insisted on having his feet in the pic, I decided that it wasn't worth the fight)


Home made Recycled Crayons There are several disks inside the wrapper you see there.


Penguin Hoodie Towel.  So cute!!


Home-made Soap, I am so excited to use


Embroidered apron which E would not take off.


Thank you so much for everything. We loved it!!

I was kind of disappointed in the way gkswife's dog pillow turned out.  There is a self inflating whoopie cushion inside it. It was supposed to really fart when the boys lay on it. But I couldn't get the whoopie cushion to work well out of the pillow, and in it it didn't really work at all.  Oh, Well. It looks like he still turned out fun to cuddle and that is all that matters!!

It is probably a good thing the whoopie cushion doesn't work - there would never be a quiet moment in this house if it did!


I'm glad you liked it all! He sure is a cutie!

Here is my super package from Island mum (apologies for not posting pics yesterday, hubby claimed the computer all evening Angry)
It arrived looking like this

The boys were really excited so we had to terar it open before rushing to school inside ther was this

A wonderful book called the eleventh hour by Graeme Base, some fun recipes of things to cook with the boys, a super box of word magnets and a packet for each of my sons
In the packets there were chefs hats and stencilled shirts one with the punk zebra from the book and one with a message in Morse code

so they can look like this

they also got chocolates which I never had time to photograph before they got tasted and two super bookmarks (and the MOrse code Smiley)

If I'm not mistaken the caption on Ivon's t-shirt says A reader today, a leader tomorrow...DId I get it right???

THANK YOU Islandmum, the boys have been putting their hats on any minute they could and we're planning to cook all weekend...

Stellou you have two gorgeous boys, I'm glad they liked their things. I hope they dont make too much mess in the kitchen! I should have included sponges and cloths.

You're almost right on the morse code it says " Today a reader, tomorrow a leader "

The whole book is filled with clues and codes for the boys to figure out who stole the birthday cakes.
