These two canvases were done for a family who just lost their sixteen year old son. It was last minute and needed to be done in 24 hours. I've never painted so fast in my life, but it was for a wonderful cause. My prayers go out to this family who grieves over the loss of their son. I hope they can think of him when they look at this art in their house.
Look at this bad boy. SO excited to have a "new to us" entertainment center. Our friends the Deans are had this garage sale to help them raise money for to adopt a little girl from the Ukraine. You can check out their website here. Anyways, they had someone donate this beautiful piece of furniture and it didn't end up selling so we got to buy it. It was a win win situation....we got a new entertainment center and they had a little bit of cash to add to their adoption fund.
This kid has anger issues. His new favorite activity involves chucking toys at anyone and any thing. Not cool, not cool at all.
We're headed down to Mt.Vernon Illinois to visit Grandma Lila, Uncle Bill, Aunt Amanda and Christina and baby cousin Elijah. The boys are so excited that they are tossing and turning in their beds as we speak. Grandma Lila has lots of surprises and will spoil the boys for sure! We are planning on taking a trip to the St.Louis zoo, going to a Cardinals game and going to a friend's wedding.....lots to do!
On a different note, please pray for my little brother Kort and his wife Brianna. He took off for his deployment to Afghanistan today and will be gone until December. I can't imagine having Lonnie gone for six months so pray for safety for Kort and peace for Bri.
