So, this took awhile and whilst I stitched and dreamed up a story about this little pirate PeeWee. I decided to write the story and send it to Giddy-Up, who along with his Mama, was suffering some serious cabin fever.
For whatever reason, Giddy-Up is averse to letters. Reminded me of my teacher friend's child who would have nothing to do with crayons or pencils. At the end of kindergarten, he still marked his name as one backward initial. And..... he has a doctorate in astrophysics. Margaret just had black stitching for a closed eye. While I liked that overall look better, Giddy-Up likes faces with all their parts.
In addition to the story, I included tiny markers, with a challenge from PeeWee to find the letter "p."
What you can't see in the picture is a tiny snap hidden behind Smoke's ear and in his pocket, so he can be attached to strings and be launched into the atmosphere.
Also, in the above picture, you can't see the uniform requirements for operating a dragon.
This was a most entertaining Playdate. Giddy-Up has never favored dress up either. Once in awhile, he's allowed his girly cousins to adorn him in cape and crown, but that's about it. Oh my, what an about face this week.
Hello Fairy Godmother Bride!
My sweet Mr. Smiley was enthralled with all these shenanigans.
