Colors, colors

Em gets a certain look in her eyes when she puts crayon to paper.


On the ground


She's learned to direct all drawing requests to Brent. He's the artistic parent, and he's more than happy to show her how to draw a circle, a square, a diamond, a flower, a birthday cake, an Em -- all frequent requests.

Learning to draw flowers

I couldn't draw a prettier picture if I tried.

  1. This just melted my heart.

    Happy thanksgiving to you, Brent, and Em!

  2. k, i haven't commented in a long time but i always read your posts (you're my favorite blogger, remember? hehe). but i had to comment this post to say that 1) that last picture melted my heart!, and 2) coming from a Pre-K teacher's standpoint, her pencil grip is exceptional! lol sorry, it's just something i'm used to noticing day in and day out, so seeing her do it at only 2 years old makes me happy! hehe Happy Thanksgiving, Nannette and family!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! and yes, photos were cute.....
