Hi all. I'm in Montreal for a few weeks working (and playing). I haven't had any time to blog and I've been barely keeping up in reading all of yours. I did stumble across this post by Jess at A Diary of a Mom and just had to share it in case you haven't come across it.

More painting

A while back I posted a photo of a painting that Janet did of my boys. Janet is the grandmother of Hailey and has a great blog that you should check out when you get a chance.

Well, I decided that I'm going to get Janet to do a few more paintings of the boys for Christmas gifts. This one is from a photo I took of them this summer when we went to Ontario to visit my husband's parents. This beach is just minutes from their house. And this painting will be their gift.

Janet always puts a small CP awareness ribbon in all her paintings now in honour of Hailey. In the first painting she did, she put the ribbon over Ben's heart. In this one, it's over Daniel's heart...because "she's sure that Daniel's love for his brother is great". And that made me cry.
