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.
Steppy has been a huge influence on Jade.
While at Grandma’s, Jade’s cousin Claire drew this beautiful picture of Steppy (above).
For some reason, Claire also fell in love with Steppy and now owns the same stuffy.
And of course, she’s also named her hamster “Steppy”.
Why is Steppy so fashionable ???
Maybe it’s Steppy’s small size ?? … the small hearts ?? … that soft pink colour ??
Maybe it’s because Steppy will always cheer you up and make you smile :-)

“Steppy” Steps Into The Spotlight
Claire and Jade with Matching Dresses
Grandma has a neat Godzilla toy at her house.
Toys are always such great inspirations for fun artwork.
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.
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.
Everybody smile !!!
Jade and her happy friends with their finished product.
Pin the Head on Frankenstein
Jade was the 2nd closest.
The game was a “monstrous” hit with all the kids !!
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 !!
