When the boy twigs were just little tiny guys in toddler beds,
we picked out this fabric to make bedspreads.
My beautiful little blue-eyed mother
and my sister Marti
quilted them for us - so very nice of them!
As often happens with little ones,
the boys got attached to their blankets
so a few years later when they got twin beds,
they weren't excited to part with their favorite blankets.
We decided to make a shower curtain out of one blanket
and move their Noah's Ark decor to the bathroom.
It worked great for years
and was often a conversation starter
at bath time because of messages like these.
This past spring we decided it was time to bid a fond farewell
to the Noah's Ark decor
that served us well for so many years
and update the bathroom.
The Mr. picked out the shower curtains - he loved the red!
My dad loved red and would have agreed whole-heartedly.
I hope we'll always remember the ark rules of
being kind to one another
and watching out for the little guys.
