It will be! It isn't up in the shop yet, but we are working to make that happen.

It was a bit of a whirlwind, but here's what we did. I've been meaning to do a blog post about some of these places - maybe it'll happen now that the kiddos are back in school! St Louis : Rooster. AWESOME Breakfast. City Museum. Definitely a MUST DO. Schedule a whole day for it. We got there at noon and didn't see everything! Pi Pizzeria. Downtown, really good pizza. Donut Drive-In. Ended up here when Strange Donuts was sold out. It was good, but nothing earth shattering. Pickles Deli. Downtown near the arch. Good sandwiches. The Old Courthouse. ACK, a little history. ;) We had time to kill before the Arch. The Arch. Of course. =) Fitz's. They bottle their own soda and have a restaurant. We hit it on the way out of town and had ice cream floats. Kansas City : World's of Fun. 12 hours of amusement park-ness. Moon Marble Co. So fun to explore - we stop there every time we are down there. Fritz's. A train runs around the top of the place and delivers your food - which is pretty much the only redeeming factor. We visit KC often, but this was our first trip to St Louis. We'd love to spend more time there!

Yep, just a regular needle! You might slow the speed down a bit if you're nervous, but I've never had a problem. You can sew through wood veneer, too. =)

i think it would be worth a try if you're willing to sacrifice a page protector if it doesn't work out. ;) i'd use as little glue as possible, and make sure the confetti is all pushed to the other side until it dries. i also like using washi to seal off a page protector, but it doesn't work well with this style since it closes down the middle. it's awesome if it closes on top! kelly noel also has a great tutorial over at SC sharing some new sew confetti pocket ideas - maybe one of these would work? http://www.studiocalico.com/blog/2014/4/15/confetti-pockets-tutorial-kelly-noel i'd love to hear what you end up doing!

hi monica! i lightly drew out the shape of a half sun, and then wrote the letters to fit inside. i'm thinking i'll do a similar wall this year (but haven't done it yet) - i'll try and take some process pics and post them!

Thanks Nicole! It's an app called "Daily Weather." I love the design of it - so much cuter than other weather apps.

I have to admit those ears make me smile every time I walk into his room - I'm glad to have a shot of it in my album!

Marina - since they are 4x4, they are not as wide as the Handbook pages. They make a fun overlay or insert in a Handbook. I hope that helps! Lisa Truesdell

YES!! I love podcasts for when I'm working on things that don't require a ton of mental attention. Or cranking up the music when it's just too quiet!

my full sized LOs (i've done some 8.5x11 and 12x12) will go into a regular album. i want to keep the handbook album small so it's easy to flip through!

We had actually tentatively scheduled going there on our last trip and changed our plans - but it's definitely something to think about! Thanks for the reminder!

that is awesome that you read them together as they came out - like you said, totally a unique time. and an amazing one!!! i am working on a handbook of your trip, but now that you mention it i think it's an awesome idea to record this side of the story as well. hmmm... i'm not sure how, but it's now on my list!

Sam has seen all but the end of the last one (he fell asleep on me in the middle of it, but he was at the start of having pneumonia so it was that and not the movie!). He's never had bad dreams from movies, but I've found that as the baby of the family, he has experienced much more and been afraid of much less than his big brothers were at the same age. He seems older at 6 than they did!

It's pretty cool to watch your kids experience it for the first time, isn't it?
