Countdown to TEN!

We will be celebrating TEN years of marriage in just over 2 weeks. TEN! We were babies when we got married.. well, ok, I was 23..he was 22.. but that seems so young to me now.. What were we thinking? :)

These last ten years, well, 13..as we were together 3 years before we were married..have been nothing short of amazing - and the ups, downs, and all of the in between - I am grateful for every moment.

This caricature was done on the San Antonio Riverwalk during the summer of 1999, the year before we were married.



Look at me! Ha! A baby, I tell you, a baby! I actually think it is spot-on for Bobby, minus the buckteeth. :)

I have to mention Allison in this post.. As she was so proud of this drawing yesterday, that she drew from memory.


She drew Arthur.. this guy


The drawing on the left is Arthur and she said the one on the right is his sister.
(She had to improvise with the colors as we only have black, blue, green, and red.. as she drew on the dry erase board, which we use to practice writing..) But, hey.. she felt the urge to create.. and far be it for me to suppress my little artist!!

Alright, well, I am off to pack.. it is off to San Antonio for a weekend visit.. hmm..maybe we will have another caricature made? Stay tuned!

Have a great weekend!

I love your little girls Arthur and DW, my son always went to the abstract side when he chooses color for his drawings, you know purple trees, blue grass and a teal sun.
Happy 10 years and enjoy your trip
