Happy Birthday Malachi! Happy Birthday Marty!

Two birthday’s in one day. That’s not so unusual, but I just realized that I’m not sure what Marty’s favorite thing is… 

I do know Malachi’s… unless of course, he’s outgrown being a champion bull rider. Yes, and he’s young! Too young for me to watch him hanging onto the rope being tossed around. Wait, he might be a teen now, but I don’t think so. If he is, I’m getting old. Malachi is my niece’s son, so I’m his great aunt.

food for thought: Is riding bulls like riding a bike—once you learn, you don’t forget?

Happy 30th Birthday Terry!

Terry’s favorite sport is hockey. He’s a goalie for the team he plays with and he loves to play, to watch, to do anything that’s hockey.

food for thought: What’s your favorite sport?

Considering the circumstances of my past, I am one lucky lady, in more than one way.

Hoppy Easter

I saved all my kids’ artwork from day one. Maybe not everything, because with three kids, it adds up. But when they were in kindergarten, maybe first grade, they did ceramics. Rita made this cute little bunny. I drew it for Easter. 

Remember, I’m still learning to draw, still practicing. Some things I draw better than others. And although this bunny is a little crazy, even in real life, Rita’s is so much cuter. But still, this is pretty darn cute too!

food for thought: All animals are soul, even bunnies! And somebunny out there loves you!

The sixth word in my quest to go through an old thesaurus. This word stumped me, even reading all the words relating to this word. Bah. Drawing something was a challenge too, so I resorted to being creative with just the word.

Happy Anniversary Sue and Frank!

Okay, I forgot how many, many years since your wedding day. Over 40. Hard to believe it’s been that long. You can read an old post that has a picture of your special day. (And now that I reviewed the post, this is your 45th? Really?)

It was a rainy day that day… so here’s a perfect sketch for you.

Just so you know, there are 45 little hearts in that puddle of water... one for each year of love.

food for thought: Can you remember the weather of a special occasion? And why?
