I have ordered several custom hats (yes, she takes custom orders, too!)  from Boot's Boutique and was very impressed with what we got!  The boys love their Boot's Boutique hats just as much as I do.
Here are a few (ok, way more than a few) of her designs that I absolutely love.  Sorry, I couldn't decide on just 2 or 3!
Classic and just adorable!

Perfect for your little hunny bunnies!

This Who-Ville inspired hat might just be one of my favorites!

{Link} Do's and Don'ts when encountering parents of multiples

Here is a great article from a blog I follow religiously, Multiples and More -  Multiples Etiquette 101: Do's and Dont's.  Couldn't have said it better, myself.  Thanks M& M!

Every once in a while, a multiple-mom blogger will ask fellow multiple moms what the oddest, strangest or rudest comments they have ever gotten were.  I always love reading the responses.  We have all heard them, and sometimes we've answered, ignored or just plain winced.  One of my all time favorites is someone telling me that their children, born 18 months apart, was practically just like having twins.  Although I'm sure it wasn't easy, I can assure you that it was NOTHING like having twins.  Normally, I enjoy talking to people about my children, but please don't just walk up to me to tell me that your husband's brother's wife's friend's dog has twins, too. Seriously?

So now it's my turn...
Is there any comment out of the ordinary or rediculously invasive question that someone has asked you about your multiples?  Please share!  Sometimes it just makes me feel better knowing that I'm not the only one dodging questions and avoiding all possible eye contact in the grocery store!
