PICTURE POST: BUGS AND SKULLS

QUILLOWS FOR EMERSON AND ELLIOTT: I thought I would have trouble finding the perfect fleece for two nephews, Emerson and Elliott, but I immediately thought of Emerson when I spotted a bolt of fleece covered in kid-friendly -- not creepy or scary -- skulls.

Finding fleece for a 5-year-old was a little tougher because Elliott likes all sorts of boy stuff. The few ideas I had -- cars, dinosaurs, trains -- were geared toward toddlers and babies.

Finding fleece for a 5-year-old was a little tougher because Elliott likes all sorts of boy stuff. The few ideas I had — cars, dinosaurs, trains — were geared toward toddlers and babies. So, I settled on fleece dotted with a mix of cute little bugs and insects.

Charlie and I gave Emerson and Elliott a barely used Wii with all the gadgets, platform thingy, and some awesome games. So, I plan to give their quillows as birthday gifts or "please remember us" gift when we make the final trip to Iowa.
