A few days ago, I was sitting here in our den trying to figure out something new I could do and it hit me that I should do a big portrait of the kids. I love pictures and my artwork in our home is our kids. I love coming up with new ways to frame and change a space with David's work. I am so lucky to be married to someone who can capture all of these great memories of McKenzie and Matt. I have had an oil painting above the couch for many years. I am tired of it, so I remembered the picture that David took back in September of the kids. We ordered it and the picture came today. Yea! So, when David got home from work, I raced to Nebbletts to have the girls frame it for me. To save money and who doesn't like to do that, I used the same frame that my oil painting was in. I think it compliments the portrait nicely. We are usually ordering for other people, so it was nice to get a portrait for us.
Back in the fall I was ready to change an area of wall space, so I had David search his photo archives and find these recent "happy" pics of each child. We ordered 10x10 pictures, then I had them framed in square black frames with off white mats. I love how they turned out. Every time I look at them they make me smile. I believe they are David's mom's favorite because Liz always comments on them when they are here.
