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.
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).
Jade gives me a personal presentation of her latest painting.
It’s fun listening … But even better watching her paint.
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.
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.
