My son Matthew has been best friends with "the boys" since he was about 2 years old. We see them at least once a week. Sometimes more - sometimes less. By now they know each other so well and are best friends.
"The boys" have only one set of grandparents still living. They do not get to see them often because they live in Italy. Their Nonni spoils them rotten and they miss their grandparents very much when they are not with them. When they are in town we like to have them over. Their English is better than my Italian, but we enjoy being together with them.
I wanted to make them a keepsake that they could take home with them. I asked "the boys" Mom for a picture and then turned it into a pillow.
