Color Time...



I love to color!  I mean who doesn't, right?

My boys will still set down at the table and 
color a new picture for the fridge.

It brings color and a memory to our Home!

I save almost all of my boys Art work.  
We have a lot of Art work from over the years, 
so I pick out the best ones and keep them in a file.  
I love to be able to look back at their Art and see how
 they have improved with each year they get older.

Each page colored or created brings 
a special memory to me.

One day when my boys are grown,
 these special pictures
 will hold a special place in my heart.  
They were made with Love!  

I have a picture of my boys hand prints 
we made when they were younger
and we put this poem inside the frame:

Every day I am exploring
Touching everything I've found
I leave behind my little marks
and hand prints all around

You clean up those hand prints
But someday when I'm grown
You'll wish you had just one
hand print to keep for your own

I made this hand print for you
so that one day when I am tall
You'll remember what my hand looks like
Long ago when I was small.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That's how I feel even now about
 all the pages they have colored,
because one day those too will become few.

Cherish those moments!
Remember the little things!
And don't ever forget the memories made!

Happy Days!

This is so, so sweet Amy. It makes me want to pull out the crayons with the grandkids and color all day with them. I love the smell of crayons. Your boys are very precious. Enjoyed seeing them and you the other night. I had a good time (even though my voice was out of commission). I loved that slab peach pie that you made… it was just delicious. Maybe I'll get a little chat with you soon.
Love and Blessings,
Pam

So precious Amy. I love that you save their art work. They do grow up so fast. I was just looking at Winston's little hand. It isn't as little as it used to be, but it is still little and I want to cherish this time..

I loved your comment on my blog. And oh wow did you get me all excited by your plans :) It will be so nice to work together!

I LOVE YOU!

Love
