Challenged by the kids’ assertion that “Daddy doesn’t know how to sew”, Mike made this Tow Mater (of Cars fame) stuffie for Johnny – much to his son’s delight!
Some artistic license was taken, but he’s definitely recognizable! Johnny has only seen Cars once, and he has never seen Cars 2, but he knew exactly what Mater looked like. He and Mike debated over some of the details, and every time we went back to Google Images to confirm, Johnny was right.
This was a one-day project. Mike said he felt like he was morphing into me, as we both sat on the couch working on craft projects Sunday evening, after the kids were in bed. =)
The weather was stunning yesterday, perfect for a photo shoot. The end of November is making up for our October snow storm! The girls were eager to get in on the photoshoot – and always-generous Johnny was happy to share the stage.
I was pleased to catch Emma’s mischievous side on film!
Lily was adorable, as ever. This girl knows how to charm!
I don’t know if it’s because this handmade stuffed toy is a tow truck, or because it was made by Mike instead of me, but Johnny interacts with it in a much “tougher” way than his other toys. The photo shoot started looking more and more like a football match!
