A Visit to the Pediatrician!

Happy Birthday CHRIS!

Since today is my baby boy's 5th birthday, he is due for a check up at the Pediatrician!

Our Pediatrician, Dr. Z, is totally awesome! My kids love to go see him (it's the nurses they don;t like, they give the shots!). His appointment is actually next week so he can enjoy his day and be shot free (he is due for 2 of them! OUCH!)

Normally the Peds Doc leaves a cool challenge and he went through lots of different ideas (which are tucked away for another day) but today my son overruled!

Today's challenge is somewhat easy...Make a boy's birthday card and you have to use at least 2 of my guy's favorite things!

Here is the list of his current favs:

1. The color blue (always has been)

2. Dinosaurs

3. Wii and Nintendo DS video games (especially Super Mario)

4. All animals (especially sea life and dogs) PS he is getting a tortoise for his birthday!

5. Bubble wrap (I swear, I can't get a package without him going through the box looking for it)

6. Macaroni and cheese (every meal needs mac n cheese)

7. Anything Disney!

8. The fish from the McDonald's commercials ("Give me back that Filet O Fish, Gimme that Fish...")

9. Play-Doh

10. Monster Trucks, Cars and Emergency Vehicles

Well, if you can't make a card from this list then you have to come back for my Daughter's birthday where everything is the opposite...very pink and girly! LOL

Speaking of my DD.... she made the sample for today's challenge! She made this card for her brother with all my stuff (and she is a messy crafter!)...but with all her heart too!

  1. Well that one got past me. Happy Birthday,Chris!
    Great card, Gia!

  2. lucky boy - I'd love a tortoise - tis a bit wet and cold here though.... plus you can only get teeny tiny ones and I'd want it big enough not to loose! I'll have a bash at this in the week and birthday wishes x

  3. Happy Birthday, Chris! Sounds like a great little guy and I hope his day is happy :) What a lovely card with all the dog prints that your daughter made for her brother :) My children have their own (very stained) stamps and they have so much fun...bathtime usually follows!! I hope I can try this fun challenge soon, Denise!!

  4. Happy birthday Chris! Love your card, Gia!
    I think I have an idea for the challenge, now to see if I have the necessary supplies! :)
