For Christmas last year, I gave Ellie a little 'Learn to Draw' book in her stocking. Her first reaction when she pulled it out was something like this - "Ha, that's funny! I don't need this - I already know how to draw!"
And I just love her drawings. Almost every wall in our house has/had/will have an Ellie original taped up for display. Yesterday I got to purchase (for 5 cents) my choice of pictures from her art studio that she set up during quiet time a few days ago. How I love these little drawings (and their artist!) brightening up all the parts of our house!
