Thing 2

On the way to the bus stop this morning.
*look at those eyebrows!
This week at Emily's school was Read Across America week and Dr. Seuss's birthday.
Monday: silly hat (Emily wore a pirate hat)
Tuesday: bring a stuffed animal (she brought a T-Rex dressed in barbie clothes)
Wednesday: silly socks (she wore purple socks with silver stars)
Thursday: wear green (the only green thing she owns is a hoodie Jon got her in Ireland)
Friday: come as your favorite Seuss character (Emily came as Thing 2 as you can see!)
Emily's teacher wore a Thing 2 costume also! Sooo cute! The blue hair clip was the closest I was going to come to blue hair:)

*This was super easy to make. I found a plate the right size for her hoodie front and traced around it on white felt, cut out the circle, then cut it in half. I sewed it on the front with a big basting stitch so It can be taken off after today. I played around with the font in WORD (I wrote Thing 2 in many different sizes, all Century Gothic bold) I printed then laid the paper on the circle till I found the best size. I then cut around each letter on the paper leaving white all around it. I laid each letter on black felt and then cut out each letter exactly, cutting off the white. I then glued each letter on the white circle. I positioned the 2 over the zipper and cut it in half then glued it down.

Seriously your kids are the cutest things ever! Their facial expressions just kill me!

And your header is hysterical I'm not sure if this is new because I am really unobservant lately but it's awesome!

How cool! I didn't realize you made it until you said so! I have thing 1 and 2 shirts for the kids, but they have long since outgrown them. You just made me all nostalgic! :) Very cute!
