Here is the project I created ,  I made tags to represent my three boys .
As you can tell , I love to do that !
It is my way of personalizing things I create .

The gingerbread boy represents my oldest son Matias ,
 I have always called him my little gingerbread .
Sweet like a cookie !

The penguin is my baby Anthony . Small yet full of personality ! 

The snowman is for my son David . 
He loves the snow and playing in it , so I call him my little snowman !
