Big brother caterpillar pregnancy announcement shirt
The author, Eric Carle, has written
and illustrated numerous children's books, and one of my favorites is "The Very Hungry Caterpillar."  Like other books written by Carle such as "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?," "Have You Seen My Cat?," and "The Grouchy Ladybug," his colorful collage illustrations are beautifully bold and vivid.  "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" holds a special place in my heart as it returns me to such happy times sitting on one of my parent's lap while listening to the story of the caterpillar who ate and ate, progessed to the cocoon stage, and finally transformed into a beautiful butterfly.  As I sat comforted by their storytelling I was also learning about the days of the week, counting, good nutrition and so much more!  As a child we even caught caterpillars so we could observe in "real-time" their amazing metamorphosis from cocoon to butterly.  So, maybe you and your children are as much of a fan of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" as I am, and if so why not have this as the theme of your next birthday party?  Zoey's Attic has adorable caterpillar shirts, bibs, and leg warmer sets.  And, if you want a fun caterpillar secret pregnancy announcement shirt, we've got that too! Isn't it wonderful that the books we enjoyed as children, we are now sharing with our little ones?  Making memories is so precious and time well spent!

Super Sunday

Are you as excited as I am for Super Bowl XLVII?  This year it's being played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA!  If you've never been to New Orleans, make sure you do someday!  The city and it's people are fantastic!  Just wish I had a few tickets for gameday!  Well, I don't see that happening so I will have to enjoy it from my own home which isn't all that bad!  Family and friends will gather for any excuse to eat, eat, eat and of course, watch some football.  This year the Baltimore Ravens will be playing the San Francisco 49ers for the championship title.  Did you know the Ravens' name was inspired by the author Edgar Allen Poe?  Poe was living in Baltimore when his most famous poem, "The Raven" was published.  The Ravens' last Super Bowl appearance was on January 28, 2001 when they scored a 34-7 victory over the New York Giants.  The Ravens' opponent on February 3rd, the San Francisco 49ers' name was inspired by gold prospectors who arrived in Northern California around 1849 during the California Gold Rush.  Ironically, Edgar Allen Poe died the same year in Baltimore.  The 49ers will make its 6th appearance in franchise history at this year's Super Bowl, having won all five times previously.  So who will you be rooting for on Sunday, February 3rd?  We've got a mixed bag of fans, young and old, joining us for the day.  Some will be sporting red, gold, and white shirts favoring the 49ers, while others will be wearing the Ravens' purple, black, gold, and white.  Zoey's Attic has just the perfect football shirts for the kiddos for gameday, and any shirt design can be customized with your favorite team's colors too.

Sharing Our Love

Valentine Shirts from Zoey's Attic Personalized Gifts

Can you believe it's already mid January, and I've already been gifted with not one, but two bouts of the flu bug? Guess I wasn't in the 62% of the population for which the vaccine will work. Anyway, I'm feeling so much better now, but I haven't really thought much about Valentine's Day and it's only four weeks away! I have always loved Valentine's Day and as a child I especially enjoyed the school parties the room mothers planned for us on this special day. Everyone in our school had carefully written out their Valentine cards to share, the moms planned games for us, and of course we snacked on specially prepared cupcakes and candies during the party. Mom also dressed us in the appropriate holiday shirt for every occasion, and I too love dressing the kiddos in just the perfect outfit for all the Valentine festivities. So if you are looking for a super cute personalized shirt for your little Valentine you might want to look over the selection at Zoey's Attic. We also have new and adorable onesies with matching leg warmers for the baby and so, so sweet pregnancy announcement tees too. It's so much fun now as a parent to experience the excitement of the children on any holiday but especially sharing our love on Valentine's Day.
