kids books.  ugh. too many to narrow it down.

robert munch anything. especially paper bag princess and Jonathan cleaned up then he heard a sound.
 dr suess, he chewed all the sandra boytons really well as a toddelr, but it feels so long ago. 
  hes been reading at a high school level for a couple years already and we kinda bypassed a huge chunk of early novels. we all love neil gaimans kids stuff.

the bot is an avid reader (yay) so over the years we have hit on everything there is. right now he is reading the final lord of the rings, and i am reading the outsiders to him, his father is reading watership down to him. all the classics from our childhood we are throwing at him and we read the ones we reallllly want him to get. ( or classics we want to read)

My 12 year old daughter isn't much of a reader Sad  she will read stuff that isn't too involved like Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Ripley's Believe it or Not books.  My 8 year old son loves to read especially non-fiction stuff about animals, space, the Human body etc.  We also enjoy Skippy Jon Jones, Bad Kitty, Aliens in Underpants, etc..

Mustaches--don't like em on men, the whole crafting thing with them is cute, but I already have a mustache cowl so I'm probably good. There's a cool manly line of fabric out (or coming out) that looks pretty fun that has some mustache prints.

Kid's books--I have nephs and we love to read Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss. I want to introduce them to Roald Dahl next.

My older son loves to read. The inserts that come inside video games...he just tears that box right open and reads them cover to cover. He just started "All Quiet On The Western Frong" so I guess we will both be taking part in WWII in the next week. Tongue

My little one has never really had me read the same book twice on purpose. We buy new ones on the kindle all of the time. He just loves newness.

okay, as for the mustache question, i like 'em! maybe not so much in a decorative sense, but the actual thing on men? yes please! just as long as they don't look like the creepy, porn-stache, kind, haha! i like facial hair in general. definitely perfer the scruffier look rather than clean shaven. my husband has a mustache and goatee and my daddy-o has always had a mustache my whole life. once in a great while, when i was younger, he'd shave it off and my mom would call him a butt-face, haha!

okay, the book question. my son is 2 years old and will listen to just about anything i read to him =) the ones i absolutely  love though and these board books by sandra boynton! they are just so cute and they rhyme and my boy loves 'em. we have about 5 different ones and read each one about 5 times a day, haha!

now onto crafting! i have 3 small parts to add to my large and it's done. i was hoping to get it done yesterday, but i wasn't feeling to well. much better today and i'm ready to start working on it again!

And your scared to death that you are never going to come alive.

Oooh books!!!  (I collect children's books. We have well over 1000!)

We love Sandra Boyton, Robert Munsch & Roald Dahl. I'm a sucker for a good story and pictures. We have so many favorites... I Love You Stinky Face, Goodnight Gorilla are a couple of my 2 year old's favorites. My 5 year old loves the pigeon books (Mo Willems) and the David books (David Shannon). My 6 year old loves Junie B books and Fly Guy books. The baby likes to chew on soft, fabric books. I love them all!

Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Managed to get in my supply run yesterday and finally got going on this large. It still feels a bit daunting, but I'm still thinking the final product will be worth it. Cheesy I'm pretty settled on what all I'm making and even have ideas for a couple extras, but we'll see what time I have.

Favorite children's book for my son is:  I Love You Forever by Robert Munsch.  For my girls, we have many books in the same "I will love you forever" vein, but by different authors.  Right now, DS is in college, so he's reading textbooks  Roll Eyes,  DD age 10 loves horse books, Junie B. Jones books, and the 'Magic Treehouse' series, DD age 8 dislikes reading but when I make her do it  Wink she likes to read about fairies, princesses, and Barbie.  Smiley

I was able to acquire a box today, and purchased some wrapping and mailing materials on the way home from work today.  Now it's just a matter of having time to wrap, and knowing when it's okay to send.  Already thought of the way I'm going to reveal my identity too!  Grin
