Queen Bean Sphynx Sweater

featured

We have gained a new family member. She's a beautiful Sphynx that we were fortunate enough to adopt from a pet rescue in the Fort Worth area. Many people cringe at the sight of a hairless cat and even say cruel things, but MAN, if you've ever been loved by a Sphynx you know how special these kitties are. They're not quite like other cats.

This past weekend, we took Alex to the Vans store to pick out a new pair of shoes.  He originally chose a brightly colored pair and just when we thought we were done, the Vans employee that was helping get Alex fitted said, "You know, a lot of people like to buy the plain white slip-ons and use fabric markers to create their own design."
