Owen's idea came from here except instead of handing out little animals, he drew his using this great book as a helper.
James came up with his own idea, of which I don't have a picture. It went something like this: I (picture of a mustache) U a question. Will U B Mine?
Another handmade replacement idea came to me during a middle-of-the-night nursing session. I really, really didn't want to participate in the buying of trophies for every player of James's basketball team this year, as I think they're too expensive and kind of a silly tradition, so I was trying my best to think of an alternative.
Fortunately the other moms on the team were supportive of the idea, and it turned out to be a lot of fun to make. I used this frosting, as my regular go-to cream cheese frosting would have been too soft, and sewed the blue webbing to the plastic bags.
