family portraits

We have company right now---three 20 year old college students. Two of them are my neices and they brought along a friend. Since I'm busy trying to appear cooler than my old-married-mommy self, today's blog is brought to you by Little Boy.

Little Boy is an artist. Maybe he's just mediocre and draws like every other almost-four-year-old in the world, but we think he's brilliant and very talented. We are his parents and we are allowed to think that. Little Boy drew all of our portraits. It's very impressive.

This is Me. Little Boy hasn't made it very clear what I'm holding in my hand, but I think it's a chocolate bar. That would explain the big smile on my face:

This is Daddy. In reality, Daddy doesn't look so, um, interesting. I think Little Boy may have been experimenting with some new techniques:
This is Little Boy's self portrait. I worry about body image. Does he really think he has huge ears? This is the Little Sister, Fat Girl. She's the lucky one, because she's holding a rocket, says Little Boy. Of course, she is bald, so maybe she's not so lucky.
My favorite part is that we are all smiling!

Oh, I can't wait until I get kid art. Of course, then I will be reading about creative things to do with the abundance of kid art...but seeing those makes me so excited. Your fam looks very happy in the eyes of Little Boy and that is a very good thing.

Hmmm...chocolate bar, rocket, Choc. bar, rocket...I think I know which one I'm going for.

CUTE!!! And have you noticed that Little Boy's portrait is the spittin' image of a Mr. Potatohead? It's true.

Hope you are having fun with your company!

Adorable! This is one of my favorite stages, but then again I have been pretty partial to almost all of them. My oldest started doing family portraits, and all of us even the baby were always holding balloons. I think she liked shopping at our local farmers market were they keep balloons for the kids. I guess it made quite the impression.

P.S. You have every right to be as proud of Little Boy (A.K.A Little Artist) as you possibly can be!
