My girls, Ellie and Juliet, turn 5 today!! Happy Birthday my amazing little goobers!
To celebrate, I thought that I would share some of my favorite drawings and paintings that they have created. My kids go through insane amounts of paper. Our house is drowning in kid art… all in the name of artistic exploration and the need to color in every possible surface imaginable – including our log walls 😦 It was hard to narrow the piles down to a few favorites but here they are!
MY BIRTHDAY PARTY by Juliet
The first masterpiece is a Juliet creation. After her amazing birthday party at Nana’s house last weekend, she recreated the celebration on paper.
A PORTRAIT OF MOMMY by Ellie
An exact replica of my shining face. Kind of fun and trippy.
THE SCARY MONSTER TREE by Juliet
Juliet is running from a scary monster tree with flags flying from it’s branches. I am there to protect her, of course!
MY UKULELE by Ellie
Ellie wanted a Ukulele for her birthday – so she made one of her own. She ran around the house pretending to play it. She is going to be really happy this afternoon when she opens her birthday presents because we got her a real ukulele for her birthday! (shhh… don’t tell!)
MY HALLOWEEN PLANS by Ellie
Ellie is obsessed with party planning and Halloween. All year, she makes lists and draws pictures of what she wants to do for Halloween. Here is one of her planning sheets… complete with a jack-o-lantern and a spooky cake (and a bunch of other things that I can decipher.)
MY FAMILY by Juliet
Here is a picture of my and my hubby holding Ellie and Juliet when they were babies. Their big sister, Isabel, completes the picture of our family. I love how Juliet labels her people with initials so we always know who they are.
CUTE ALIEN MONSTER by Juliet
Juliet loves to draw cute monsters and robots. This is one of my favorites!
RAINBOW DREAMS by Juliet
This is one of my favorite drawings of all time. It is a picture of me and Juliet dreaming of a rainbow world. I want to go there 🙂
That’s it! Happy Birthday, Ellie and Juliet!! I love you like crazy!!
