 The only 'costume' little man has been caught in!  One of my favorite pics!

At my house, the little man won’t be dressing up for Halloween this year. 
He didn’t dress up last year either.

No, we aren’t against Halloween.  This has absolutely nothing to do with our influence.  Little man just wants nothing to do with it.  If you ask him – which people do regularly – what he is going to be for Halloween, his automatic response is ‘nothing.’  He doesn’t get upset, or embarrassed, he just simply states, ‘nothing.’ 

The practical side of me is actually happy he isn’t into the dressing up part.  I don’t have to make a costume.  I don’t have to buy a costume.   

The crafty side of me really wishes he wanted to dress up as something so I could get all creative and make him a costume.  But he wants nothing to do with dressing up.   

Maybe next year he will change his mind.  Maybe not.  Either way, he is my little man and I want him to be who he is- costume or no costume.    I want him to be true to himself and not let others influence him.  Even if it is as basic as not dressing up for Halloween.

Welcome Home Ranger!

A big smile is on my face as I type this.   Another military family is ‘complete’ once again.  Another solider returned home, safely!

One of my best friends had me make three ‘Daddy is my Hero’ shirts for her sweet kiddos to wear at the Welcome Home ceremony for her husband.  

Looking at these pictures, I can’t help but grin knowing how happy they all must be!

Welcome Home Ranger! 

Thank you for doing what you do and serving our country! 

Rangers Lead The Way!

HankOrange is famous!

Well, maybe not famous.   But, there is a chance that HankOrange will make a television debut!   Two adorable little boys will be wearing shirts created by HankOrange and they will be on TV. 

Let me explain.  A while back a lady contacted me about making some ‘welcome home’ shirts for her two boys.  I was excited she chose HankOrange to make special shirts for her boys.   After a bit of back and forth conversation, I learned that her husband’s Army unit was coming home from a year deployment, the following week!  Excitement!  I also learned that their unit was a part of a new television series,  “Married to the Army: Alaska.”

I was thrilled.  First of all, Welcome Home ceremonies are a big deal and I get excited knowing that I’m making special shirts for little ones who will soon be reunited with their Daddy.  Second, I was super excited thinking that HankOrange shirts could possibly make an appearance on this new TV show! Yeah!

So, if you’re as curious as I am if HankOrange creations will be on TV, you can watch the premier of  ‘Married to the Army: Alaska’ on November 18th…   You know I’ll be watching! 
To see a preview of the show, go here!  And another preview, here  

Thank you Sara for choosing HankOrange to be part of your very special day.  

The day your Hero came HOME!
