One of E3’s favorite things in AZ, was our cactus, Jack. We said hello and goodbye each time we left the house or came home.

He told Daughter #1 that he wanted cactus pajamas. So what does a nana do? She buys green sweats.

Marks a bazillion dots.

And starts stitching “pokeys.”

He was quite pleased with himself!

Definitely the cutest cactus I’ve ever seen. He ended up using this as his costume for Halloween.

Have a great day ! 🌵

    You are so clever! His cactus pajamas are adorable and he looks so pleased.. After a bad experience with fake fur, I vowed to never sew a costume unless it started with a sweat suit.
