Cole Happy 5th Birthday


Every day I wake up with Gratitude and every night I go to bed with Gratitude...for all the special people in my life....Especially my sweet Husband and our little Son Cole...Today we start a whole weekend of celebrations for his 5th Birthday! I have no idea where the time went....but I am grateful for every moment that is now a memory in my heart....and my mind....He is the greatest gift we have ever received in our lives and we are so Happy to share in all of the cute things he does each and every day.....

My heart is especially happy when we create together!!!

Above, I created a special keepsake painting for him to remember his 5th Birthday ..it is an ink and watercolour piece...and he painted a sweet little watercolour doggy for all of you....these will be framed and put up in his room this weekend!!!!

I am so impressed with his watercolours lately....don't you think this one belongs in a Gallery!!!!

Diana, how time flies! When I first viewed your blog there was Cole's picture as a toddler! He is so handsome and certainly is following in his mom's steps as an artist. Your painting is excellent. Both your painting and his definitely need to be framed.

Oh Diana! Where to begin...What a glorious flower bed, and yet, with all that beauty, the best thing you have ever grown is Cole! What an adorable little man you have there! Your painting of him is DeLovely and a wonderful keepsake. HIS painting is AMAZING! This child will grow up to do many things in life. What a blessed family you are. **sigh** Deb
