Our sets of buns (as in heinies, not the cinnamon variety!) are increasing in number, but our sofa has not grown along with our family size! A couple of years ago, I made a set of floor pillows out of some brown corduroy. We keep them stacked in the corner where they can be pulled out easily when needed. The kids plop on them to watch TV. They also come in handy when we have guests and the adults are filling the comfy spots in the living room. We also pull out the floor pillows at nap time since we aren't very strict about where Owen sleeps during the afternoon as long as he lying down and resting! (The floor pillows have on occasion even served as walls to a fort!)
As large as these pillows are, my angels began arguing about who would have to share. It is quite an insult to be the one to sit on the seam between two pillows, you know. I decided the time had come to add to our stack of pillows. I had a couple of large pieces of fabric I had been looking to do something with, so I made Gavin and Owen each a special pillow for Christmas. (New use for pillows: sitting on them while opening the rest of your Christmas gifts!)
Family movie night in January was an extra-special affair, too!
