Quinn's Artistic Debut (aka The Not-So-Unlucky-Friday-the-13th)

Two fun things happened last week on the so-called "Friday the 13th".

The first thing that happened was that Quinn got an early Valentine's Day package from his Grandma and Grandpa (my parents). My camera happened to be nearby, so I couldn't help but grab these shots of Quinn and the package. I think the pictures say it all.

Here he is examining the contents....a fold out Valentine's card and a green shirt. He really liked the card! Look at how seriously he is studying it.

Plenty of smiles say that this gift was a hit!! And I love this picture, because you can see all of his teeth....4 on top, 3 on bottom, and molars top and bottom!

The second fun thing was Quinn's first piece of artwork! He made this Valentine for me at his school. It is proudly on display in our kitchen, on the fridge. Tours are available any time, but unfortunately, this artwork is not available for purchase.
It says "Mom, you've got something that no other mother has!"

"Me....Sorry I'm non-returnable" Notice the lovely crayon-strokes!! My future artist!

See, Friday the 13th doesn't have to be all bad. And we didn't even have to deal with broken mirrors, black cats, or walking under ladders.

I think he did a great job. Alot of kids that age just want to eat the crayons!

"Kid art" is the best! Great job!

I proudly display my kids' artwork too. In fact, we're re-doing our playroom and I'm framing some of their artwork to hang on the wall! I'm glad he enjoyed his "Friday the 13th"!! : )

What an adorable 1st art work!!! Thanks for sharing with us. We hope Quinn enjoys his card. You can turn it over and let him color on the back too.
