meet hattori hanzo frandsen

famous ninja warrior.



in my attempt to become more crafty, i made little shigechan's first toy. (too bad i'm not more of a perfectionist, otherwise shigechan would have toys that have straight lines sewn down them . . . but that will come with time, right?) i found this cute little design in the magazine "stuffed" (which highlights different designers of "softie" toys), and then tried my own! check out this whole cute line of softies here.

Let us compare! Saluting and marching vs sewing Japanese toys? I think the choice is easy. Love,Ron

Emily, way to go! It turned out great. Shigechan will love it and slobber all over it! :)

awesome.

did you know that when Pete was like 11, he stuffed about 30 stuffed animals into his bed under the covers and had a sleep over with them. True story. Maybe shige-chan will follow suit.

nick, thanks for the insight . . . i was wondering why peter wanted me to send him all those stuffed animals down to him in alabama . . . it's all coming together now!

Cutest Ninja Warrior I've ever seen.
I LOVE the term of endearment, SHIGECHAN. I've told a few relatives the name and it brings a smile to their face.
Good for you Emily. Shigechan will love all his handmade creations.

As Ron and I were admiring Hattori Hanzo Frandsen, he reminded me,
"You know they're just 3 months and 2 weeks from having their baby."
Now THAT is exciting!!!!
