All Work And No Play

All work and no play makes Jack a tired boy! A car ride is about the only way to get this kid to fall asleep right now, and these are some of the pictures Jay has submitted as proof of nap.

Mele Ukulele

Now THIS is how you rock a ukulele! We're dealing with a triple fever situation in this house and cabin fever is starting to set in. So in searching for ways to keep us all entertained, I came across this adorable kid singing "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz. It didn't bring down the kids' fevers, but it did make them laugh and Elizabeth told me I needed to dot com it on our blog.

The Happiest Tree I Know

Meet Mr. Branch. Why is he so happy? I have no idea. He lives on the edge of my parents' driveway and is always super psyched when we come to visit.

A few years ago this whole tree was set ablaze by a landscape light malfunction and Mr. Branch took the brunt of the damage. He had to be cut off to save the tree. He took it like a champ and has been smiling ever since.

The Artist at Six

Elizabeth's art was chosen as part of her school's "Out in the Town" art exhibit program. Her funky flower piece is described as "like VanGogh" and it's the only first grade art on the wall.

It will be on display at Sheer Designs Hair Salon in Lexington until December 11th. Elizabeth turns seven in a few days, so this is your last chance to get a glimpse of the artist at six!
