A Pokey Little Turtle

A Pokey Little Turtle

The pattern is from here. It was delivered to my inbox quickly, and is easy to follow. I made this with various cone chenilles... Next I'll be making a pink, smaller-sized one for Kris's niece.

Last week, we recieved an invitation for his nephew's birthday party... Specifically addressed to us ["Uncle Kris and Natalie"] and this is cheesy, but it made me feel grown up. So - all you moms out there - what's a good, appropriate gift for a 4-yo boy that both he, and his parents, will appreciate?? I was thinking some of those "Magic" art supplies from Crayola. He also *loves* baseball and can hit a ball about 20x better than me - so Kris and I were thinking a nice bat and mitt. Thoughts?

I melted my plastic this weekend... Sometimes I think I really do need shop therapy - I just get bummed out when I am broke and can't buy things. So, I think know I went overboard, but I can't bring myself to actually care right now. I can't wait until my goodies start pouring in!! I'll be dreading the MasterCard bill next month, but whatevah!!

He's adorable-I saw those patterns there.

Gift for a 4 year old boy-Spiderman, Batman, Spongebob, Hot Wheels, you get my drift. Ask Kris to pick something he would want to play with and "bingo"-you got the perfect present for a 4 year old and his dad.

Cute turtle!

When asked what my kids wanted for birthdays I always said, Anything on tv! At 4, kids are into what's hot with cartoons and movies. Simple sports equipment gets a lot play time too. :)

Your pokey little turtle is so cute!

From what I know, 4-year olds love super hero stuff. My nephew wanted Spider Man, and Hulk stuff.

Cute do nice work. I'm new to blogging but not to crochet...come visit my site if you have a chance. As for the gift, get a laundry basket, head to the dollar store and fill it up. 4 year olds usually don't know the cost of stuff, just so there is alot of it! Good Luck!
P.S. I'm taking one of your buttons!
