I went into Austin's room the other day and this is what I saw. I call this picture "Remnants of a Magician." This is what results from having a kid who is learning magic.
He cuts, glues and draws on cards for different tricks.

Well, he decided to organize his room. He does this all the time. His room is really never that messy. He found this cool hat :)
Here are just some of his card collection. You can't imagine how many decks of cards he has!
Here is his tornado wood. He found this when he was very small and he was very into 'the weather'. He thought this looked like a tornado. It was hard to capture in the picture but it really does.
He found his old Nascar shirt. I remember when we bought this for him it was so big. It hung down to his ankles but he still insisted on wearing it. Now look at him!
And his old Randy Moss jersey! LOL!
Does it make his muscles look big now??
And lastly look what he found in the bottom of his closet! This is the box his clock radio came in LAST Christmas. But when he opened it what was inside? Candy wrappers and an empty Chef Boyrdee can!!! Wow! How did that happen. I thought it was so funny because his room always looks clean. Who would have guessed what was lurking inside the closet?

I can't believe my baby is growing up. Just looking at some of his childhood treasures brings back those precious years. Now this year he started high school. Amazing.

We still have jersey's that my 8 year old has grown out of that we can't part with.

I like vintage playing cards. I can't pass them up when I see them in the thrift store!
