He's so cute, it's scary!

Not only is our boy flipping for joy, he's also been working on the "balance beam."I may have to look into a toddler gym class if he keeps this up.

The "nice" manager at the grocery store gave Little Elvis a little Hershey bar. He made a big mess. Anyone know what gets chocolate out? Spray N Wash didn't work! The nice manager at Chick-Fil-A gave Little Elvis a hat and coloring page. Bob received a gift card for his birthday (thanks Mom!) and we stumbled in on a kids fun night. Little Elvis enjoyed an entire bottle of chocolate milk. Lots of chocolate for one day. Hyper boy wanted this empty milk jug once we got home. It had been washed for the recycle bin, but I wasn't thrilled. Especially when I couldn't get a picture of his incredibly adorable Halloween outfit...
... until I got him to lay on the ground. This outfit got him TONS of compliments everywhere we went on Thursday evening. His onesie said "I want my Mummy!" and his socks were orange and black with white bones. His little shoes were the monster Vans my dad got him a few months ago. People were impressed with our little orange bolt of lightning as he ran everywhere.

cute! gramma gave little bean an orange outfit that says something like "my first boo"... i still have to remember to get it out to wash it before halloween.

i have found that a shout stain stick is my new best friend! i had tried the oxy spray early on, and that doesn't tackle her messes. the stick has done well. of course, little one doesn't have chocolate.

it did almost take out the blood on daddy's shirt from when we cut her finger.... i would think it would work on chocolate.

good luck w/ containing your little guy. and i can't imagine how nov. 1st will be. HA.

I have two tricks for removing chocolate from clothes. The first is to "back the stain out" with very hot (almost boiling) water. Turn the clothing inside out and pour the water on the back of the stain. Keep pouring the water until the stain is out...but be carefun not to burn yourself.

The second is to make a mixture from liquid Wisk, plain ammonia, and water (use equal part of each) and put into a clean spray bottle. Spray the stain on the inside and outside. Let sit until dry and then wash. Check to make sure it is out before placing in the dryer. If not repeat again.

Hope one of these will work for you.

And hug little Elvis for me...

Ah! So cute! I hope he wasn't too cranky when he came down from all that chocolate.
Hope you are doing well, take care,

Thanks for the stain-fighting suggestions! Hopefully they will work on an old stain when we get back home!
