Jesse poses for the camera

So this is what happens when I try to take Jesse's picture.  I'm trying to get a good shot that I can make a drawing from...

If he doesn't just run and hide, then he poses for the camera like this:

Leo's pencil portrait

I was so happy I got this perfect shot of Leo to do a drawing from!

And here is my drawing!  I have a couple more in the works and will hopefully have them done soon.

Everytime we scan in my drawings they get very washed out and I lose all the detail.  This time I took a photo instead and I think that worked better.  I think you can click on the picture to see it larger and get more detail.  Soon I will get up more details on prices and how to order your own portrait drawing!

P.S.  Happy Birthday Abby!!!
I love you!

Shower time

Leo gave himself a shower before bed this evening.  I keep looking at these pictures I took so I just had to share.  He probably sprayed half a bottle of water in is face and loved it!

I just want to gobble him up!

Off to bed now, good night!

Easter Egg Hunt

We had a great time yesterday hunting Easter eggs in the back yard.  This was the first year we have done this and the boys had a blast!  On Saturday Jesse and I had lots of fun decorating eggs.  

Leo found one egg and some rocks.

Jesse found the rest of the eggs.

Leo had fun destroying his one egg and rolling it down the slide.

Jesse was very proud of his findings.  Can you find Leo?

Jesse sharing some Jelly Beans.

The jelly beans were too flavorful.  I think Leo got a red hot flavored one!

Crayon roll and Tractor Pillow

I finally did a couple more sewing projects yesterday.  I kept them simple so I would actually complete them in one sitting.  First I made this crayon roll for Jesse.

The crayon roll is laying on our light table, I know it makes an odd picture;)

And here is my second project.  It's a pillow for Jesse also.  I have the same fabric to make one for Leo too, I just need to get more stuffing. 

Jesse really liked this.  He slept with it last night. It is the perfect size for his little toddler bed!

Well this week I am finally going to start my drawings of the boys plus one of my niece!  I finally managed to get a good picture of Jesse :)
I'll post the portraits as I get them done!
Have a Happy Easter!

Weekend visit

This weekend my parents came to visit and Dad took this cute picture of Leo.  Leo was so crazy about his Grandpa, he would get upset whenever they were not in a room together!  We all had a good time and Jesse loved playing GeoTrax with Grandma and Grandpa.  Jesse is still on his camera strike but I'll get a good picture of him one of these days :)
