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.

Lots of new art on Grandma’s fridge.

The Adventures Of Windy Cindy

Everyday she walks outside …

Everyday she’s blown away.

Remembering Those Snowy Sunsets

Snowy Sunsets

I grew up on the Canadian prairies and we played in the snow all day.

But, I especially loved walking outside when the sun was going down.

Sometimes, the snow-drifts would catch some amazing colours .

Jade’s Home and Workspace

Jade's Workspace / 1

Our family almost always paints or draws at our kitchen table.

We’ve thought long and hard about how to best integrate our family’s art space and material.

Firstly, we wanted to incorporate Jade’s art into the work space.

We also wanted our art resources / materials to be easily accessible.

For a final touch, we envisioned Jade’s paintings in our living room.

Last month, we went to Ikea and purchased some Expedit bookshelves.

For us, it’s a perfect space solution.

Today, I put up Jade’s art in our living / working area (pics below).

Pre-School Paint Presentation

Jade Painting

Jade gives me a personal presentation of her latest painting.

It’s fun listening … But even better watching her paint.

Now Santa, Let’s Get This Straight …

Minnie's Bowtique

Our family started a tradition last year of “drawing” our letter to Santa. This year, Jade asked for a “Minnie’s Bowtique” toy. Pictured is a warm winter sun, Minnie, Goofy and the brightly coloured bows. I added the text and snowflakes.

Dear Santa

Last year, we requested a toy kitchen set. Santa really enjoyed listening to Jade with her artwork. And most importantly, Jade had a lot of fun too.
