Atlas has had a fun Christmas. He got to help wrap presents, place ornaments on the tree, share peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and got an awesome stocking.

Some would say this is looks more like opening than wrapping a present, but it is all a part of the creative process. (He prefers to give than to receive.)

He would climb the tree with an ornament, and he always found the perfect place.

The best gift ever! Peanut butter and jelly, bread, plates, a picnic basket, and a "WE BE JAMM'N" pin. Picnic will abound this summer!

Look at the treasure from his stocking! He is a rich turtle with all of those gold (chocolate) coins. (Don't tell him they are chocolate! He really thinks they are gold!)

Ready to make pb&j!

Caterpillar Garden

On a recent day trip, we stopped at a rest stop, just inside of Tennessee outside Chattanooga. At this rest stop was this fun caterpillar garden, and of course Atlas HAD to have his picture taken.

He started by saying hi to this guy.

Then he met this guy.

Next thing you know he thinks he is a dentist and is examining this guys teeth. Atlas said he found a cavity...

...and Mr. Caterpillar threatened to eat him! Atlas was trying to escape here.

Of course Atlas was just joking and so was Mr. Caterpillar.
They made up and became best buds.
Atlas has all sorts of friends!

And then this happened!
