Hi reader, happy December! I can’t believe we are almost to the end of another calendar year. That means another round of holiday gatherings, and in our family, more birthday celebrations.

, all the time. Big Brother was even Diego for Halloween this year…Baby jaguar, magic backpack, and flashlight included:
My sister, their talented mommy, made this awesome Diego and Dora cake for them:

I’ll let you in on a little secret… there is no licensed Diego fabric on the market, so I bought a package of Diego underwear (called “unders” in Big Brother’s world) at Target, used Heat-n-Bond Lite to stabilize the fabric before cutting the numbers out of them, and satin-stitched around the edges after heat-setting them to the shirts:
Not bad, huh? I can only imagine what next year’s pop culture obsession will be. Here’s Little Brother in his shirt, lest anyone be left out….
