Everyone says it but really, where did the time go?!?! Wasn't it just yesterday that I was pleading with the girl to give me a grandbaby?!? It just took forever for Max to arrive and now he is turning 8! It's been a blink of the eye, I tell you, a blink! Makes me want to put toothpicks in my eyelids to keep from blinking any more! I want to show you a few things I've picked up in anticipation for Max's birthday...his latest obsession is trailers, as in travel trailers/motorhomes. And when I say obsessed, I do mean obsessed! He draws floor plans of trailers in his spare time, when he's not watching videos on YouTube about trailers, and he is excellent at it!! So in keeping with the trailer theme, this is what I have for Max...
Next we have not one but two pillow cases for Max - so he can dream about trailers while he sleeps, which I'm sure he does anyway. The pillowcase fabric with the red-dot cuff came from eBay and the fabric with the brown-stripe cuff came from my friend Barbara's stash! It's good to know people with stashes!
Every 8 year old trailer-enthusiast should have this book...even if the 100+ tips, secrets, hacks and resources were not all that amazing! I think Max will find them interesting, he likes reading about anything trailer.
When we took Max to a trailer dealership last December, he was the happiest we've ever seen him! I took a lot of pictures of him inside and outside the trailers and those pictures went into a book for Max. (Costco has the best deal around for picture books!) And now you probably think I've thought of everything...almost...can you guess what these are?
Yeah, probably not my best work but I was in a bit of a time crunch. Everything has to be packed up and ready to go very soon!! Oh, Max did tell me he wants a trailer cake for his party...of course I told him he would have one! I'll make it when I get to Utah, not quite sure how that's going to work but if Max wants a trailer cake then by golly, he'll get one! Might be a good idea to start praying for me now!
