Merry Christmas from our house to yours!!!

Let me introduce you to the "Octo-Squad"!!!!
They stand ready to serve and protect!
They fight crime and injustice!
They have laser swords that light up and make sound effects!
(I was so excited when I found the swords at the dollar store!)

They have masks and capes with their initials on the back!
(the fact that their initials are the same
 as the boys who own them
is completely coincidental)

Meet George!

Meet Carl!

Meet Donald!

Meet Eddie!

For the Octo-Squad I used this free pattern from the Moda
website and you can find it here.
I even made Octo-Squad t-shirts for the boys!!!
I drew the Octopus on paper and then traced it onto
white fleece and used wonder under to steam it to the t-shirts.
Then I stitched them onto the t-shirts so that they wouldn't come
off in the wash. I used fabric paint for the wording.

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas!
I can't wait to get to church this morning and see the boys
in their new t-shirts!
