Should I cut her ear off NOW?

THIS is the photo that was displayed at Peyton’s art class as the project of the day.

THIS is the picture that Peyton painted.

Do you hear that? That’s my heart overflowing with pride at her talent.

Girl’s got some MAD skills!

    That is incredible! What a true talent she has been blessed with. So, for all those empty walls in that dream house – no need to look outside your own home for the art work to decorate with! But, get ’em now before she realizes that she could just as easily SELL them to you!!

    Katie and Peyton need to spend time together. They will bond quickly with the “love for art” thing. You and Pete should quickly frame that one. ( I have a pile on the piano.) Believe me they like to see it displayed.
    On another note. If you register at suave.com today (Jan. 14) you will be sent a couplon for a free bottle of shampoo.

    OMG! How old is she? You need to market and exploit that talent. That’s your retirement plan right there!!

    Wow. That is ULTRA impressive.

    And thank you for the sweet comment, lady. Honestly.

    Are you guys still in town while you’re waiting on house-shenanigans? I’d love to see you before you leave.

    OK, come clean. Which one of you does she get this talent from? It’s just awesome. And Rachel’s pretty good with a paint brush as well isn’t she.
    My kids? Well maybe the boys are ok with technical drawings, but creative art? Nah, no chance!!

    At 4 that is major!! Have you been to get canvas and supplies yet? I still haven’t found my hidden talent. You should be really proud!!

    You’re yanking my chain. A four year old did that??? When I was four I painted the teacher’s backside and got banned from painting for the rest of the term.

    That is beyond awesome! I would love to have a drop of that talent!

    I have been reading the blogs about being de-ported. It is especially painful as our nephew (16 months old) was just diagnosed with leukemia (ALL) and had his port put in last week. I want my SIL to read your blog, but I am not sure if it’s the right time (her start, your end). Words of wisdom?
