I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

Mr. Alligator

Of course part of celebrating "Christmas" with the ladies involved a gift exchange.  And once again they out-did themselves in terms of buying amazing things for my boys.  This is just one of the really cool presents: ANIMAL HANDS.  I believe they were purchased at Dick Blick - but they're also available on Amazon.

They're temporary tattoos, but seem to hold up VERY well!  Alex has been Mr. Alligator for four days already, and after many trips to the potty (being careful with the soap/water) and a bath or two, it's still looking good!

(This photo was taken just after application, before it was dry.)

So, if you're looking for a gift idea for the young child in your life - these are AWESOME!  The box says that they're suitable for hands of any size, but not below age 3.  Obviously they'd just take up less "acreage" on an adult's hand, but they fit perfectly on my almost 5 year old.

But, you should be forewarned, that if your child comes to play, I'm pretty sure Alex won't want to share.  They're just that cool!  "Mr. Alligator" is having too much fun with them all by himself.
