little lambs!

A package came in the mail today. Grams and Peeps sent these fluffy lambs for the girls. They screeched in excitement when they saw them! This picture is of Ben giving them a blanket ride before bedtime.

My Benny's latest paintings

I think it is about time to share some of the AWE-some talent that my Benny possesses! He Finished the painting of the 3 Friars about a month ago and it is now in the Spring Salon at the Springville Museum of Art. The more contemporary Indian woman is one of my faves, we took her picture at a Pow wow down in New Mexico a while back. She is waiting to be shown at the Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe in July. The Painting he is working on now, is of course my new favorite and I think the best work he has done so far, if it is possible to get any better! I will post it when it is finished. I miss painting sometimes myself, but seeing Ben create these beautiful paintings, seems enough for me at the moment. One of these days I will paint again, and he can be my teacher! Ben took Bella over to his studio yesterday to try out oil painting. She came home looking like a very abstract piece of work herself! but she says when she grows up that she wants to be a painter just like her Daddy, so we'll see!

No more pom poms

This photo is a favorite of mine because I love bella's hair like this, but she will not let me do pom poms any more. It has to be in one bun or a small pigtail on top. She also insists on dressing herself! so after a two hour battle of getting her ready in the mornings, I have decided to make it a little easier on myself, and let her do the dressing. She has actually come up with a few numbers I thought were pretty cute!

O.k. I think its time for a post! here are a few pictures from Easter morning. Grams sent the girls these darling dresses. It was such a beautiful morning, I let the girls outside to take a few pictures before church and they just went wild! that is why there are none together. Olea is so wiggly she would not stay still for a second! I always have to post pictures I want to remember even if they are not great ones because I will probably never print them, so if I post them, I can always go back and view the happenings.

Tiny tot

Some more shots of the tiny tot. She did a little suck in with her tummy that I thought was so cute so I made it into her before and after shot.
