Flat Callie

Our Texas cousin, Callie, did a Flat Stanley project for her classroom. Flat Stanley is the story of a boy who is flattened by a bulletin board falling on him. He's so thin that he can mail himself in a letter to visit other places in the world. Callie created a "Flat Callie" to visit us in Idaho. Here a few of the places we took her to visit.
She played in the snow with us. We even made her a coat and snowpants for the occasion.

We made sure she got a picture with some Idaho potatoes.

She got to see the museum.

And the falls of Idaho Falls.

She even got to feed the ducks by the river. She's lucky she made it out alive from this visit. Those ducks were HUNGRY and thought everything in our hands was food.

What fun we had with Flat Callie. We hope we get to do a Flat Stanley project sometime so we can visit Texas!

How come Flat Callie never got to come visit Aunt Janet? She could have ridden the train. Did you get a picture of her by Johnny, Carson's best friend?
