...Marcel...Quackers...Little Man...Cel-e

All the nick names this little man has adopted in the four plus years since he has been born.  But now...he is very clear. "MY NAME IS MARCEL."

We call him "Quack-quack...time to put on your shoes."  "YOU PLEASE NOT CALL ME THAT...MY NAME IS MARCEL."  Quackers was the nick name he got when he first started talking and everything sounded like gibberish...with an audible "quack, quack" here and there.

Coming home from work.  "Marcel, how was your day?"  "I'm angry."  "Why?"  "Ryan's 'nother brothers keep calling me, 'Cel-E"....MY NAME IS MARCEL."  Ryan's "'nother brothers" are his friends.  Remember...everyone in our house is a brother!

Okay sweet little man...we know you're Marcel...and as you approach your fifth birthday...we'll keep working on calling you Marcel!

Now...onto a fun Christmas card for my stash!  Loved Keesh's Sketch for this week...time to start pulling out the Christmas paper and start building up more cards! 
Ingredients:  Graphic 45 Paper; SU Cherry Cobler, Very Vanilla Paper, SU Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobler Ink; PTI Damask Designs Twine and Buttons;
