My wild girl draws a picture. Or two. Or twenty.

 I have a little artist!  My self-proclaimed "wild girl" loves to draw things.  The Captain brings home lots of srap paper from work, so luckily she has a generous canvas.  And now, with my new camera, I can actually take good pictures of her creations.  Can you guess what this is?
Ah! I just LOVE the swirly arms and legs of her heart people.
This one happens to be a Heart Devil.  I'm not sure where she came up with that. . . .
Here are some of the 20+ turkey cards
Briar Rose made for our Thanksgiving guests to take home.
(No, we didn't have that many guests!)
My girls LOVE horses.  And ponies, and unicorns, and pegasuses (sp?).  Over Thanksgiving break, they chose to watch Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken two days in a row.  I could watch that movie again and again, so I didn't mind.  Afterward, my little artist went on a horse-drawing kick. 

Sorry this is sideways.  Do you like my funky toes?
I especially love the dappled gray horse on the top row,
or right row, depending on your angle.

There's a barn, and another dappled gray horse, and of course, she drew herself riding Lightning.

Here are my favorites, though.  She asked me how to spell Sonora and Lightning.

Sonora and her brave horse, Lightning,
running up the ramp and jumping off.
She does a good job illustrating movement, doesn't she?

Here's a close-up of Sonora grabbing Lightning's harness,
and both of them jumping off the ramp and into the pool below. 
Golly that would be fun to try sometime.

On a more humerous note, when I was in the fifth grade, I lost the spelling bee because I spelled "lightning" as "lighting" (withought the N).   Writing this post just brings that all back because I keep typing Lightnigh.  Ugh!


  1. Cute kids!! I love that she draws so much, she's awesome! Claire is into art as well, she's constantly drawing, writing, color, and cutting to make art projects. It's great. Except... I get overwhelmed by all the art in the house.

  2. I'm glad to see you have a new blog. I've missed your posts. I love your little Artist. Those really are some pretty detailed pictures for her age. Wow.

  3. We are also in the picture drawing phase. I find these treasures scattered all around the house. Unfortunately, the girls also enjoy cutting paper. I guess I should be glad they haven't cut each other's hair... yet.

  4. yes!! regular updates!

    she has some real talent!
