Cute kids pencil portrait

This drawing has taken me quite awhile, but it is done and I'm happy with it!

I never know what to do about clothing.  Do I draw it just as it is or do I simplify it?  Is this some favorite shirt that the customer wants to remember forever, or was it an unfortunate wardrobe choice?  From now on I will draw clothing as it is unless otherwise requested. Whew, decision made ;)

Leo's first haircut

I miss his little curls, but he's so cute!  This will be much easier to wash the banana's out of!

Leo kept scooping rocks out of the driveway with his ice cream and then trying to eat it.

Jesse decided his lost its appeal.

He was very excited about this little flag.


Savana's pencil portrait.

This is my beautiful niece Savana.  I'm not sure how I feel about this drawing.  The photo I had to work with was very low resolution so I didn't make her face larger on the paper.  This left me with a big black sweat shirt to draw, not fun.  Clothing is never my favorite thing to draw or large dark areas.

This drawing is for my mom, but I will happily do another drawing of Savana when I get a better picture to draw from!

Happy Saturday!

While I was cooking dinner I looked out the window and saw this.  My boys are so sweet!

Leo was looking pretty sleepy.  I love those dirty round feet!

Earlier today Leo was taking it easy and enjoying an apple while Jesse rolled around next to him and gobbled his feet.

Yes, my kids are usually half dressed at best.

Backyard Adventures

The boys enjoyed their new slip-n-slide Friday.  They loved running back and forth on it and yes there was definitely a lot of slipping and sliding!

I was checking out the close-up capabilities of my camera.
Jesse has decided that he likes having his picture taken with the new camera.

And this is Edgar, he lives on our patio.  I really like him, he reminds me of Where the Wild Things Are.

New Camera!

We got a new camera and I love it!  Thanks Mom and Dad for an amazing anniversary gift!  We chose a Canon Digital Rebel XS.  I just tried it out today and have a lot to learn.  I'm looking forward to trying out the manual setting and seeing if I remember anything from high school photography class!

Okay I know this picture of Leo is pretty awful, but I do see this face a lot ;)  I think Leo's teeth are so funny because they have all come in such an odd order!  I just hope they do all come in eventually.
(On top he has the four center teeth and one molar on each side.)

And finally a picture of my boys standing together.  They don't usually agree to this in front of a camera!

I think I'm going to have to cut Leo's hair soon, it's in his eyes.  A nurse asked today how old my daughter was.  Leo is always mistaken for a girl, he's just too cute!  :)
