So with no school today the morning was sweet & slow. 
LOVE the relaxed pace of no school!!!
I pulled out the paints & we just enjoyed creating together.
The boys lasted about 15 minutes and then
I got some time alone with Annie.

Of course I painted something I love!
(That is suppose to be Annie :)

She thinks I am the world's greatest artist so...
...I pretend I am  :)

All excited she says, "Now I wanna paint you!"

Of course, I say what every good mom would say,
"Honey, just make sure you don't paint me too fat."

Well apparently that didn't work too well.
I take up the whole page!
And feet really are that big.
But hey...togetherness is good.

I'm just glad we didn't use bigger paper!

Libbie, that is darling! Annie really is a good artist! oh, and you are too, 'cause I know you had to draw yourself without looking in a mirror. teehee.... Those are keepers, you know.

Ah I love how you two found a precious moment together. Annie painted you like this because your the biggest part of her life and since she loves you so much she painted you big. haha...Besides with a heart as big as yours you have to be bigger right?
Such a great way to spend a day.
I am in Charleston tonight and wanted to come by and say hello. I miss my blogging but hopefully will be home soon. Unfortunately I am staying about 5 more days than I had planned on so it is hard on me to be away from home this long.
Love you

I think the next time Annie is painting you, you should ease up on the make up a little bit... :)
