Pen to paper

Our boys love to express themselves in ink... Writing. Or drawing. They love it! Their hands are almost always stained with marker ink. Their clothing too!

Luke Shrader originals...

A self portrait.. Notice the pink hair and eyes of different colors. And, of course, a broad smile!

Zach Shrader originals...

The note he taped to the house on Halloween. It reads, "I would not go in here if I were you, because there are goblins in here."

Flower... A school art project

The to-do list he made for January 1. It reads, "Eat breakfast. Go out to play. Play superheroes with Luke. Eat lunch. Give the Indians toys that I don't like." (Indians = the children in India that we've been talking about who don't have shoes, schools, clean water or even parents in many cases. He wants to give them any Christmas presents that he doesn't really need or want. Not exactly the spirit we're shooting for, but he's getting it.)

And with the above note, he drew the following...

Our Christmas tree and stockings hanging above the fire.

I know it's only the second week in November... but many blessings to you this holiday season.
