Our first idea? Garden stones! HOW ADORABLE!
Scratch their name in the cement while it's drying really quickly and vioala! Adorable, affordable gift. ....right?
Terra cotta pots were our target and we wanted those perfect, Pinterest-worthy handprints by our littles on the sides so we could decorate them and give them to Grandma, like a badge of pride she could display in her garden.
At one point in this hoopla I was in charge of both babies. They were having a blast in the baby pool, but Billy couldn't stay still.
Later, when it was my friend Lauren's turn to watch the babies she had Billy on her hip and Logan's hand in hers, trying to walk him up the hill of our yard to get to me. Logan went one way, Billy leaned the other, they both whined and squawked, the sun didn't get any less bright or hot and there was still cement everywhere.
Our conclusion? We're thankful that God blessed each of us with one baby at a time this go-around because we can't imagine needing to keep our eyes on BOTH of these boys at once...ever!! Total toddler trouble!
Needless to say, all Grandmas and Nanas loved their gifts and laughed at the story of how they were crafted. I'm not sure Lauren and I will craft together with the boys in tow again. Next time, dads get to watch them!!
