My Tuba!

If you’ve been following our blog, you may remember that Ashton has had an unhealthy obsession with “The Music Man”.  Luckily, the Christmas season brought a whole new bunch of movies that made him KIND OF forget about it for a while.  He loved watching any movie with Santa in it and especially “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.  However, in the Grinch movie, there are also drums and trumpets and tubas and all that junk that Josh is sooooooo afraid of and opposed to.   Ashton can find a way to make anything into some kind of instrument.  He is completely creative and this is a picture of his tuba.  I had some of these flowers in a vase, with straight stems, and Ashton HAD to have one to be his tuba.  Being a ‘grown-up’, it took me a long time to figure out how a flower could ever be a tuba.
