  3. Love the missing ear one!!
    And the teeth - yes, he has dreadful teeth! But I wonder what wonders the handcream managed to work on those hands.
    Just super, Janice!

  5. I love the first one! I never noticed the ear! But I'm sure she doesn't consider that part of his anatomy too important!

  8. Haha--both are good but the first one is my favourite. Let's hope his other parts make up for the missing ear!
    Have a great week. Cheers!
