Early morning … getting my wheels turning …

Seasons Of The Year

Seasons

With the arrival of summer recently, my wife created this wonderful drawing for Jade.

Visiting Unikitty at Cloud Cuckoo Land

Unikitty

Jade’s been talking about The Lego Movie for months now … Jade’s gone Lego Movie crazy !!!

Jade still isn’t very comfortable using scissors so we brainstormed a project. She really wanted to create something with the Unikitty character (I had nooo idea what she was talking about). After some internet research, we recreated Unikitty’s home in Cloud Cuckoo Land.

Finally, last week we purchased The Lego Movie DVD … and now I finally “get it” !!!

Awesome !!!

I asked for “Pressed Pants” not “Plants” !!!

Pressed Plants / Drawing

All joking aside, Jade and I had a blast at StrongStart yesterday.

StrongStart is a FREE early education program in BC, Canada.

The top drawing is a fun doodle from our pressed plants (shown below).

Jade really loved being in the trails and picking leaves and flowers.

And I really liked drawing from our exploration.

This exercise helped me focus on unique details and shapes of our local plants.

Visiting Grandma’s Home

Visiting Grandma’s Home

We just came back from Grandma’s home in Saskatchewan.

Grandma is “old school” and doesn’t have any cable tv or internet connections.

Because of that, we spent a lot of time drawing, going to to the playground, etc.

Jade had a wonderful time seeing all her cousins, aunts, uncles …

And Jade especially loved seeing her Grandma again.

Jade’s Hotel Transylvania Birthday Party

Hotel Transylvania / 1

Happy Boo-Day !!!

My daughter Jade absolutely adores the animated movie Hotel Transylvania.

It made a super fun theme for her 4th birthday party.

Enclosed are a few memorable pics from the day.

Group Mural

The party craft was a giant 8 foot wide poster.

Each kid drew a monster and decorated their own bat.

Even some parents joined in the fun.

In the end, the mural was like a HUGE card for Jade.

Pin the Head on Frankenstein

Jade was the 2nd closest.

The game was a “monstrous” hit with all the kids !!

Hotel Transylvania / 5

Birthday Cup Cakes !!!

Of course, no party is complete without some sugary goodness.

Jade had a great time but was COMPLETELY exhausted by the end.

She went to bed at 4:30 that afternoon … And didn’t wake up until 5:oo the next morning !!

My little daughter has so much energy.

Jade’s my wild flower.

She’s the wildest rose.

Sending My Love via Air Mail

A fun day creating with Jade.

We cut some great old printed material and added doodle lines.

I’m always a sucker for stamps and cancellation artwork.
