Playing Outside for Jade’s 5th Birthday !!!
My daughter is super, super excited about her upcoming birthday this month.
She will be FIVE and starts kindergarten in September. It is a very exciting time !!!
Two of many reasons I fell in love:
· Her humour & imagination.
· Her incredible drawings.
She’s a wonderful mother … Our daughter is so lucky.
Lately, we’ve been dog-sitting our neighbour’s amazing black lab.
The dog’s name is Gunnar and he’s eight years old.
He has the perfect temperament for children.
Gunnar doesn’t jump up on people and he doesn’t lick faces either.
He’s the perfect friend for Jade.
She absolutely adores him.
Jade drew the fun character and then I thickened the lines (above).
We made a bunch of drawings and Jade danced around (below).
Finally, some chalk art weather again.
My wife drew this smiling octopus outside our home.
As a prairie boy growing up, it’s still strange not having snow in December.
It was a dry day and we decided to spread some Christmas cheer.

In Canada, today is Thanksgiving. I’m eternally grateful for the moments of love with my family.
I’m also very thankful for Art’s ability for us to grow and connect.
Happy Thanksgiving Day.
Big smiles and fun chalk art at the farmer’s market.
