Painted Family Tree

Photobucket

Last night I continued on with my family tree project for our little girl. We put on the soundtrack to The Breakfast Club (which is really not as great as one might think) in honor of John Hughes who passed away yesterday. We talked about art, our baby and plans for the future. All in all it was a calm and relaxing night. For us at least, our daughter was once again on the move. I am also at that stage in pregnancy where we can try to identify her body parts (Is that her leg or her arm, head or bum?).

I think I am nearly done with the painting (in acrylic by the way), but I can't share the completed project with you until after she is born because I have her name on it as well.

Beautiful! What a special piece of art for your little girl's room. It makes me want to work on a family tree for our kiddos.

I got creative too and worked on my door wreath. Loving it every time I unlock the door!

LOL u really want to know? I was trying to teach my cat to stay away from a plant I had just put in my bathroom area...Figured out the best way was to put some decorative rocks over the potted soil and to spritz the rocks w/perfume.... that did the trick...
I love the family tree u painted!.. u are talented.

Last night was our last night of VBS. Our mission fundraiser for the week was collecting money to purchase solar cookers for refugees from Darfur who are now in Chad. To raise the money, we had a Pie in the Face contest! Some church members volunteered for this "honor," and the kids voted by putting money in the cans. The top three earners, one of whom was our pastor, then got "pies" (whipped cream in cupcake liners) thrown at them! It was a hoot. Also, the fire department came and turned on the big hose and the kids got to run underneath and get soaked. It was so much fun to watch all of that!

Tonight will probably be boring after all of that. :-) I think I'll visit my mom and maybe go out to eat with her.

Enjoy your weekend!

I forgot...I'm lovin' the family tree! Those shades of green are so soothing. Wish I knew Baby W's name, though! ;-)

What a perfect piece for a little one's wall. She will no doubt treasure if for her whole life. She may ask you to put up a poster of 'insert name of popular band in 2022' where it hands when she is a teenager but she will return to loving it again I promise :-) I have something similar from my childhood that I cherish today more than ever.
