So if we find some free moments before we leave we will explore the internet and see if there is anything interesting in between here - the middle of Texas - and Colorado to make our stops more fun and relaxing that will all survive not only depending on playing one DVD after another.
Did anybody see the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo? If you know something that is worth to stop for let us know, we might mark our route with it.
As busy as I was lately I did get a few bunnies started and the first one finished. He is not perfect, but we are still in the trial phase, so the ears are to skinny, the head is too wide, the face is cricket, but the first one is done. Finally. Here are the instructions I used BUNNY (in german).
The girls would love to get a letter from Dad in the mail. A letter they pick up out of the mail box at the road, a letter they can read again and again, a letter they can carry around or just put underneath their pillow. (They still have the card he mailed them on his last deployment!) I would love to get one, too, of course I do.
So he asked me to send him some stationary. No problem. I went to Walmart and wanted to get some stationary. Mmmm. Where? I found envelopes, but no sets of paper and envelopes. I am used to go to a store in Germany and have huge selections of stationary from very simple, to elegant, cute,beautiful, anything you could wish for. There nothing.
So, I checked everywhere I could think of and was possible close to here and just came to the conclusion if there is any stationary still left in this timeage of computers and email with the art of handwritten letters almost forgotten then the stationary is all flowery or girly. Just for females. Nothing else to choose from.
So for right now we are left with simple white envelopes and a white ruled writing tablet - I couldn't do the yellow. But we have an idea and are thinking what you can't get, you can always make yourself, so wait and see we might be coming up with very special personalized stationary for the very special person in our life.
