Flat Stanley Goes Home, Warm and Cozy

I know I’m a little (?) retentive, but I can’t believe Flat Stanley came all the way from the frozen plains of Nebraska, without so much as a coat!  Or blanket!  Or … dare I say it?  Not even a QUILT?!

Yeah, I had to say it, hehe.

Well, I just took matters into my own hands, and before long, Flat Stanley had a very special, personalized quilt – just his size!

And because, I’m just kinda an over-the-top kinda gal, I went way overboard and put together a book, to send back to Nebraska with Flat Stanley.  Here’s the cover, and an entry on one of our pages:

It’s Aunt Tammy’s turn with Flat Stanley, first.  I can’t believe that he came all the way from the snow and cold of Nebraska, without a blanket!  Since my favorite thing to do, when I’m not being the mom or working, is to quilt, I sat down with Flat Stanley and made him his very own quilt, with his name, even!

I think he likes it, because he’s jumping on it like the kids jump on their beds!

And here he is, later in the afternoon, snuggling into his quilt for a little afternoon nap.

In Texas, we call our nap a siesta.  Do you know that’s the Spanish word for nap?  We LOVE to take siesta’s in our house!

Flat Stanley then helped me work on the computer.  It was kind of a boring day for him, but tomorrow should be more fun!

If you’ve had Flat Stanley visit you, let me hear from you in the comments!  I’d love to hear what you did with him, and how much fun you had!

Share and Enjoy!
