Happy 6th Birthday James!

Today we celebrated James' birthday.  It has been 3 months since we have seen him... and he has grown so much!
 While James opened gifts, MD played with James' cousins.  :)
 He's opening the gifts the children picked out for him -- new beyblades and a beyblade night light/flash light.
 E found this Jack in the Box and had a blast with it... guess what he will be getting for  his birthday?!
 MD and his buddy, James:
 So James requested this shirt a long time ago and we waited til his birthday to complete it.  This is how it went:
Ed, his dad sent me a picture and I printed it and colored it in so I knew what it would look like in the end:
 Then I traced it on freezer paper and cut it out and began making the stencil:
 This is the first stage - black fabric paint first:
 Second was the blue paint:
 Third was the gray metallic paint and the finished product!
 I added the 6 on the back of his shirt last.
Happy Birthday James!!!!!
