Karen, No Peaking!

I am almost too embarrassed to write this post. Yes it has seriously taken me this long to finish this piece for the lovely Karen. She was oh so very patient, good thing because I wanted to get it just right. Karen won my last giveaway where she got to choose what she wanted me to paint. The reason I hadn't done another giveaway for a while was all the guilt I had for not finishing her illustration before now. Life has been so busy, but I sometimes freak myself out when I know someone is counting on me for a painting. So needless to say, no more "Choose your own" giveaways for a while. Karen has informed me the painting is going to be a Christmas gift for her hubby (no pressure) I hope he likes it. 

Tomorrow I will post the last of the JDRF hands that I am finishing up. Then on to the next illustrations. 

Karen, if you DID decide to peak, thanks for being oh so patient with me. You truly are a sweetheart.

Sing, Sing a Song

Still one of my all time favorite songs. It always makes me think of Sesame Street. Yes, I still like watching Sesame Street.

Honor Choir Girl



Sloan with her music teacher Mrs. House

I didn't know what to expect when Sloan wanted to try out for honor's choir. I figured it would be fun for her to give it a try, and boy am I glad she did. Mrs. House is an amazing teacher. I was so impressed by the performance. The kids did an awesome job. Teachers for the most part have such a thankless job. So often volunteering many hours just because they love what they do. They love the kids and value the future, the kids are our future after all. You can tell that Mrs. House puts her heart and soul into this program. What a blessing to have teachers like Mrs. House.

The video is a little grainy, our singing is awful, but hopefully you can see how cute Zoe was while we sang her Happy Birthday.
