He was just finished just arrived today.  He’ll only be here another day or so visiting before he moves on to his new friend’s house.  In the meantime, he’s having lots of fun hanging out with his buddy, Fwed.

Tony’s a ham and a camera hog!  I had to give him a stern talking to before he stopped his antics and allowed me to take a decent pic of the two of them.

  1. Where the heck to you find these buttons from. I need a button Tony is adorable by the way.

  2. He is too cute, so is Fwed. Yeah, where do you find these buttons?

    Love Cousin Tony! So cute! I love his mouth.

  4. I so can’t wait for the adult version of Mi Escuelita! I’m also stash-diving and looking for the perfect yarn for that vest… it’s freezing at the office. Don’t know what they’re thinking.

  5. Tony’s totally a stinker – here’s hoping Fwed doesn’t pick up any bad habits!
