Isn't she so cute!!

Dear Megan and Doug,

Last night I dreamed I pushed Meg. She caught herself before she actually fell. But your baby didn't like being jostled around, and she was feeling cramped inside mommy's tummy, so she angerly poked her head out of Meg's belly button to find out what was happening. That is one little princess I'm going to keep my distance from! Don't worry, all newborns are ugly. She will grow out of it. I think she looks like Doug. Sorry I pushed you Meg.

Shhh! Don't Wake Grandpa.

My grandpa is in the hospital recovering from surgery. I went to visit him today. He was feeling a little better and started telling me all these stories about his life. He told about how when he was 13 years old, he and his best friend would write notes for each other to give to the teachers and they would cut class. They would go caddy at the golf course to earn money so they could go to the movies. Grandpa also talked about growing up during the depression and eating anything they could find...raccoon, rabbit, turtles, etc. He talked about the german shepherd he own when he was a boy. I love Grandpa's stories. All that talking wore Grandpa out and he fell asleep mid sentence. I took the opportunity to sketch him. ;)
