Liam Rocks...

a refrigerator art Van Gogh

Our #2 grandson, Liam Christopher, has always seemed to have a creative, artistic bent to him. When he's here, he and I can spend hours creating artwork out of construction paper, markers, stickers and some glue. Once in a while we get one of his masterpieces in the mail.

He started school this year at the Oak Grove Classical Academy in Albuquerque (pictured with his bff, Aislyn) and so far seems to be enjoying it. One of the classes is art and they've been learning about artists, including Van Gogh. Keep in mind he is five years old. He decided he wanted to create something to send to Donna (his Mamaw) for her birthday, and he did it with Van Gogh in mind.

As always, refrigerator art is the best kind. We'll clear a spot for this one. One thing we noticed is how much improved his handwriting his, bordering on signing his name in cursive.

I'll take Liam over Vincent any day of the week.

The Little Princess

...has brown eyes

Met with Megan and Andy tonight to plan towards their wedding ceremony next month. They've known each other since they were 13 years old, but didn't actually date until years later. The couple is having the ceremony and reception at Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine.

I've been feeling a little "grand baby deprived" lately so they let me hug on their daughter, Hailee, while we talked. Eight month old charmer with blond hair and dark eyes.
