"I am looking for a gift for a special five year old who has no need for
additional toys at this point. Noah was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a deadly
childhood cancer, two and a half years ago. He has recently taken a turn for the
worse and likely only has a couple more months with us. He is enamoured with
superman and other superheroes. Recently, he told his mom that he knew he was
going to die and asked her if he was still a superhero. I would like to make it
symbolically clear to him that, of course, he is."

I actually rewatched that movie, and yes, Al is just as handsome, but overall the movie is kind of cheesy. But I loved it as a kid and am still loyal.

These little pajamas for my son were inspired by some fabric in the Claudia raid. My aunt had a sack of left over fabric from drapes she'd made. They were ivory and silky. Rhett was running around playing in all the fabric as we were dumping them out, and he loved the silky drapes, rolling in them and carrying them around. So I thought he would love pajamas out of the drapes with the silky side against his skin.

I got a photo frame on clearance. The background is fabric I cut to fit. For the assignments, I cut up a paper grocery bag 8 1/2 x 11 to go through the printer. I tore the edges and just taped them to the fabric. The idea is you write the names of the people assigned to each task with a dry erase marker on the front of the glass. That way you can easily wipe it off and rewrite the new assignements the next week.
I thought this would also an easy way to make a menu board. I'm not into scrapbooking, but I'm sure you could get all crafty with scrapbook paper, stickers, embellishments, etc. I thought of having black and white photos in there as the background, but I thought it might interfere with seeing the names written on front.

My good friend Erin is having a little boy. We've been friends since we were 12 and I was really excited to make her some gifts. Lynette (my little sister) and I were combining forces and this was the outcome.
