Consider personalized clothes for the kids. These are not just wonderful gifts, but are also very practical. The kids will surely love to see their names on their clothes or even their own photograph.

Not long after that it happened – I finally decided to say yes to the black. I put aside my fears of how others would perceive my daughter. (Oh, who am I kidding? It was only about how they would perceive ME – and what on earth were her grandparents going to say!!!???) No one was more surprised by the results than I was. I actually LOVED IT! Those blue eyes of hers popped and she looked gorgeous! The jet-black hair didn’t bring with it a hardened soul or the inability to smile and make eye contact. My girl was the same girl she was before – and along with her black hair came a little more self-confidence and self-discovery (OK, clearly I was doing most of the self-discovery but she did some along the way too!)

Use one of the bath towels to make the base of the carriage. Fold so that you once again get a thin stripe. Roll together in the shape of an oval. Secure that.
To make the wheels for the carriage take four slices from an orange. Make the slices approximately the same size. Position each orange slice in the wheel areas of the carriage and slide a toothpick or piece of a wooden skewer through the center of the orange slices and into the watermelon. If you want, you can skewers a cherry, grape, olive or even a marshmallow first, then skewer the orange, and insert the stick into the watermelon. If you have no wooden skewers or toothpicks you can also use pieces of clean, stiff wire. Instead of orange slices you can use grapefruit slices or make different wheels. Some choices for wheels include cardboard circles wrapped in tin foil (paint the foil black), painted margarine tub lids or even tires from an old toy vehicle.
