Gracie sewed this stuffed Jawa a while back.  The inspiration came when she found the shiny gold buttons at a fabric store.  She bought them and then built the Jawa around them...

It's the 300th post on Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty!  That means it's time to crack open our Family Trading Card Packs again and share some favorites...

It's been a while since we last mentioned our "Family Trading Cards."  It's a fun family activity we try to do on a regular basis.  Dad cuts up rectangle cards and hands them out.  Each person can fill their cards with whatever they want.  The cards get handed back to Dad, shuffled, and redispersed.  Then the trading begins!  Fevered bartering goes on in an attempt to snag the day's favorites.  Each of us has our own pack filled with 4 to 5 years worth of collected cards.

And since the last time I shared Trading Card highlights, Elijah has joined in on the fun!
