Caden sporting sweatbands
Mark did a wonderful job making toy chests for the kids and I don't know if I ever posted anything on them. He just recently had name plates made as well. The kids (and I) love to put the toys away in them! Every time Sammy opens them up it is like Christmas all over again!

My parents have a really neat clay art piece that is displayed in their cabinet. It is an Indian woman sitting down with about 12 kids/people all around her, the whole thing only sits about 8-10inches high. She has been dubbed the "storyteller". So now when we are up there, Caden and Joey always ask Papa Joe for a story and it is absolutely amazing the creative stories that he comes up with! And usually the stories have some sort of indian dance that goes along with it, like you see below. Enjoy!
