He kept putting his hand up to people as if to stop them from distracting him from his mission to walk into his first primary class as an official primary kid declaring "✋ I'm going to the big boy class". 😂😻 I generally can't handle how cute he is. His facial expressions are ridiculously funny. And he knows it. 🙈 He's going to be 3 next month!! He tells me all day long that he loves me and I am savoring this special era where he adores me and wants to cuddle all the time because I know I can't live in denial and hope that he will always be this way 😂 but for now I'll take the sacrificed sleep as he sneaks in bed at 2 am everyday to repeat over and over "I love you so much mamma" "You're my best friend" ❤😭😍😍😍😍 how am I supposed to kick him out when he's so sweet?! Alex and I could probably do without the kicking, scratching and hair pulling though. 😀
Some progress shots 💙
This is a photo I took of a slide projected image of my handsome, sweet dad on his LDS service mission in Indiana. My mom commissioned a portrait to be painted of my dad and it's been my joy of this Christmas season to paint it! I wish I could keep it, I've always been a daddy's girl and it's never been easy living far away from him. He's simply the best ❤
Went to #MonongaliaArtsCenter today and put up four pieces for the Holiday Show! If you're in Morgantown you should stop by and see the rest! @monartscenter
A process shot of the great 'MATRIARCH'
A somber and vivid affair between dimensions and seasons of life. She is the purest sorrow & fiercely nurturing
Standing 4 feet by 4 feet, she still lives at @boxheartgallery ...for now!
Kitty cuddles and Alex is feeling left out 😸😻😽 We're actually waiting around for William to wake up from nap so we can attempt a Christmas photo. So cozy snuggling. 🎄❄🎅⛄👪❤ #Siberian #Siberiancat #Siberiankitty #norweiganforestcat #forestcat #greycat #catsofinstagram #silvercat #silverhair #blacksilverspotted #catsnughle #catnap
I re-write captions for Instagram posts so many times it's comical. How to decide from the myriad of messages that I'd like to send into the world..There are simply too many especially in proportion to how often I post. So I write something vague after side stepping something too raw and vulnerable and erase it for something trite that I think is comical but probably isn't at all, then something real happens and I end up rambly-writing for too long about something completely unrelated to whatever topic I originally didn't want to exert effort into rambling on forever about. I originally was going to write about how hard this year has been.
It has also been great. The end.
