PICT0274 edited

Okay, Flat Stanley, it’s time for our picnic!!

Are you ready?

PICT0269 edited

“Um, I think so….. Will I be getting buried again?”

Ha, ha!

No, don’t worry, I never bury anyone during picnics.

First off…..

PICT0281 edited

….. We start with drinks!

PICT0283 edited

How was that?  Did you like it?

“Oh, yes, Bubbers, thank you!”


Now we have…..

PICT0286 edited

….. A piece of watermelon!

PICT0287 edited

[And deliciously chubby Wooga fingers– Yum!!]

“Oh, thank you, Bubbers!  That was very good.”

You’re welcome!  I’m so glad you liked it!

PICT0279 edited

Well, that’s it for our picnic!

PICT0011 edited

Now it’s time to say, “Farewell!” and mail Flat Stanley to a family member in another state.

PICT0255 edited

Don’t worry everyone, Stanley only feels a tiny bit squished.

PICT0260 edited

Hee, hee, hee!

Come on, Mom– not the armpits!

Hee, hee, hee!

Holy smokes! (by the Bubbers King)

PICT0169 edited

Look what I found!!

PICT0155 edited

He was in my luggage and Mommy says my cousin Conner made him and his name is Flat Stanley.

She also said he’s here to play with us until we send him to another house.

But we need to be very gentle with him.

PICT0163 edited

So I was very careful as we read my Winnie the Pooh flap book together.

PICT0159 edited

And I was very careful when I showed him the view outside my window as we flew home.

PICT0173 edited

(Ahh.  Hello beautiful mountain!  We missed you!)

After we got home, I wanted to play with Flat Stanley some more, but somehow…..

PICT0188 edited

….. His arm was broken!!

PICT0182 edited

Oh no!  Poor Stanley!!

PICT0184 edited

We better fix it!

PICT0190 edited

Luckily, Mommy can fix anything with a bandaid.

PICT0196 edited

See?!  All better!  Okay, Stanley, now we’re ready to play!!

The Stowaway (by Flat Stanley)

Conner Flat Stanley0004 fixed edited


My name is Flat Stanley and this is my friend, Conner.

Conner made me for a school project based off the book Flat Stanley.

I am supposed to visit different houses and states, so Conner asked his Mommy if I could go home with his Aunt Heidi and Cousin Bubbers after they were done visiting us.

PICT0144 edited

So before I knew it, I was a stowaway in Bubbers’ luggage on my way through airport security.

Now, I have to say, I was a little nervous about going with them.

Because three years ago, Conner’s older sister made me and I got sent to Heidi and Charming’s house…..

Picture 010 edited

….. And they stuck me in a vent.

Picture 012 edited

And a CD player.

Which you really wouldn’t expect from such normal looking people.

But deep down…..

HPIM1737 edited

….. They’re loons.

HPIM1738 edited

And they tried to bite my head off.

Picture 039 edited

But I guess I shouldn’t complain too much, because they did take me to Canada while they celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary.

Picture 070 edited

And showed me some beautiful gardens.

HPIM1764 edited

And tried to sell me as a postcard.

But hey!

That was a long time ago, so maybe things have changed.

Maybe they’ve amended the lunacy of their ways.

PICT0144 edited

All I can do now is wait and see…..
