Jade says her funny doodles are “rascals” and friends.

Their friendship is based on “joking around” and smiles.

All the insects parading around outside … gotta love this season.

Our Magical Wedding

Wedding Drawing

While at Grandma’s place, Jade and I looked at old photo albums.

Jade especially loved our wedding album.

After we paged through it, Jade immediately started drawing.

It was so cool seeing her so excited about this magical day.

Tomorrow is our family’s 13th wedding anniversary.

I’m so grateful for our lifetime of love together.

Here’s a photograph of our first dance as husband and wife.

Lady Bug Express … Special Delivery !!!


Jade received a beautiful letter last week from a guest drawer  !!!

Ziggy Short Crust is on a quest to revive the lost art of letter writing.

This is her  post about Jade’s letter.




The drawings, writing and details are so beautiful!

During Christmas, we set up a pretend mail box.

Jade couldn’t believe it … A real letter for her !!!




After the letter, Jade demanded some lady bug puddle jumping!

Thank you so much Ziggy for brightening our rainy day!


Realities of Raincouver


In Vancouver it rains … a lot … and then some.

Rain gear is essential.

Vancouver’s #1 rule; always have an umbrella.

And if you have a 3 year old — don’t  forget the rubber boots!

My wife and a detail of our large drawing. We are the people in your neighbourhood (haha).

Yea, we like to draw … we probably drive all our neighbours crazy.

Picking Blackberries

Jade and I LOVE picking (and of course eating) berries.

Official Blackberry Tester … To ensure “quality control”, Jade always tests the berries for me.
