My First Bird

IMG_0201

I like to make birthday’s a big deal in our family… but with 8 of us to start out with, we don’t need a house full of guests to do that.  I pick a theme for each kid on their day (sometimes with their help and sometimes not) and make the whole day special.

So when my oldest boy was turning 10, his theme was birds/bird watching.  He loves them!  And I was pretty sure he would think it was cool if I painted him something for his birthday.  I was right.

And my kids are so sweet.  There is no pressure to make things perfect; they see it the way it is supposed to be. 🙂  That’s my kind of critics!
