My Favorite Things Blog Hop

Happy December and welcome to the Child's Play MY FAVORITE THINGS blog hop!
I"m hoping you came here from  Doreena's blog.
If not, please visit the Child's Play blog to start your hop!

Here's my layout.
I used pics of my son's favorite toy, his Pinocchio. He carried it with him EVERYWHERE. Whatever fun he was having or mischief he got into, Pinocchio was right there with him! Over the years poor Pinocchio has had many stitches, skin grafts, new neck muscles, and his eyes have been re-colored. His little nose took a beating too because Alexander loved rubbing Pinocchio's nose against his. And look at his hair!! 
Right now my son is almost 22 and has named me as Pinocchio's guardian! I love it!

Please leave a comment and then hop along to visit Steffanie's blog.

  16. I love the story of Pinocchio! You LO colors are perfect and you've captured your son's love of his favorite toy! I had a 3ft. giraffe and the middle of it was a thick stick for support it got so old the stick would poke up and push up the fabric in the hear it looked like it had a bone problem so I pretended it did and that I had to take it to the doctor. I don't know what happened to it but it was loved like Pinocchio!
