Planting the fall bulbs turned out to be such a successful activity that I think I will have to go buy some more before it gets really cold! Little Boy dug just about every single hole with that handy-dandy bulb hole digger/twisty-turny thing I bought. I am not sure, but I think we planted about 6 bags total - tulips and daffadils.
About his jacket ... I love this jacket because it has an elastic waist and comes down in the back - it is a nice, warm jacket from LL Bean. And it fits him - well except the sleeves! I am hoping to get one more year out of it... but you can see that the sleeves are a bit on the short side. Sooo - I am going to try making fleece mittens that will come up the arm a bit and velcro over the arm band of the jacket sleeve? Something like that anyway. OR - I can take apart the cuff and put on a longer one... but before I start that - I have to make sure I can get some suitable cuff material at the fabric store... maybe even heavy fleece if they don't have the ribbing. I'm thinking I like the long mitten idea... we will have to experiment a bit!
