WW: Shel Silverstein Said it Best

I made this shirt specifially for the Prudent Baby "Use Your Words" contest...
and would you believe it....
I mean as in "holy crap it can't be true"....
I placed in the top 10 overall (9th to be exact)...
not only was I in the top 10
but my handy work (using Mr Silverstein's words)
was selected....
as "Best Machine Embroidery"
"Best Machine Embroidery"
Holy Crap!!!

Hug O' War

I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

-Shel Silverstein

I love these boys
And I love their bond
When I told them to hug so I could get a picture of this shirt
They did so....gladly
And were perfectly content to stand there
Giggling and hugging
until I was done!!

 (I embroidered the shirt for a contest on Prudent Baby if you are wondering)
