Super Birthday Presents

Everyone,

Juice and I started talking about birthday presents for the kids around February. Actually, from February to May, I have 8 birthdays in my family. Dad, Mom, Brother, Juice, etc. So I sit down one afternoon and plan everything I’m going to get for all those birthdays and start shopping.

This year, I thought the kids would like super hero capes. What little kid doesn’t like a super cape to run around in and go “super fast!” as Professor likes to say.

Since I am far from crafty, I turned to the Internet to price out some of those things. About 10 minutes into my search, I thought, “You know, I know someone who is REALLY crafty with a sewing machine. I wonder…would Valinda do this?”

Several excited emails and texts later, and Valinda did!  We have these beauties!

The kids have not taken them off since the party. Super heroes at the garden? Yep. Super heroes at the school drop off? You bet.

The big surprise in the package? Capes for Juice and me!

As if you didn’t know that one already.

Want one of these beauties for yourself? If you ask my friend Valinda R-E-A-LL-Y nice, I bet she’d make you one too! I think she quoted me $17 for these, but you’ll have to ask her for the details. Here is her blog, and her contact info:

Also, she does pretty amazing princess dresses. If you want one of those too.

Super fun!
