Family Portrait Project

March 30, 2007

This is what our family looks like from Girlie Girl’s perspective.All I can say is, “Why the heck do I have blonde hair?”

Anyway, I was wondering what your family looks like from the eyes of your child.

If you’d like to play along, just ask your child to draw a family portrait and post it on your blog. Then come back here and add yourself (the actual post) to Mr. Linky so we can come over and check it out. Hope you join us!

  • Note: I have to do a 3 day trip over the weekend so I’ll leave this up as a sticky for a few days. Yes, that’s right, I have to work more than my usual 2 days this week. The tragedy! Oh well, I convinced some of my really good friends to do the trip with me so I’ll have someone to go shopping with. If I have to work this weekend, I’m taking everyone down with me.
  • BTW, thank you to Jen of The Wilson Six and J Designs for the beautiful note pad she made for my daughter. I had to white out Girlie Girl’s name for this post but you should see how cute it is!

What a fun share idea! I absolutely love it and knew I had some old ones tucked away that I’d scanned for family several years ago. Thanks for helping me dust them off. ;)

I’ll get on this after my “funk.”

BTW - I’m thinking she gives you blonde hair because you’re her mom, and mommies are bathed in sweetness and “light.” Awwwwwww…….

Mine is not up yet, but I will try to get Little Princess to draw one and get it up before the weekend is over.

I posted those photos a while back for Love Thursday but I think it also applies here. I hope it’s ok to use an old post - they are cute drawings of our family :)

Thanks Island girl for doing this, so we can display our kid’s wonderful artistic creations :)

Re: your french toast question…at least 3-4 days. You can also pop it into the toaster to heat it up!

Hey, you’re wearing a PINK outfit! This is such a cute idea. I’ll see if I can get Josh to draw one. He can be a little of a Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde.
Kailani, Thank you so much for the award. It really made my day! :)
You make work FUN, when you tell us you are going SHOPPING!
Have a great trip!

As soon as I get a chance, i have Anna make one if she wants. i know that she made some pictures of our family before Emma was born, and in the picture she drew Emma with red spots. When I asked her what that was, she said it was the blood the baby came out with… just like on TLC’s A Baby Story ( which we watched a lot of to prepare her for a new sib), LOL!

That’s a lovely drawing! My 3-yr old son still doodles but I would cherish the day when he can draw our family on paper. I will surely frame it when he does.

Thank you for your birthday greetings. I really appreciate your visit and your warm thoughts.

Have a nice trip and enjoy your shopping.

I knew I read something about drawing a family portrait somewhere and couldn’t remember where. My boy did one tonight and I’m so glad I figured out where I saw the “Project”. I’m going to go back and link to your site. Sorry I didn’t put the link up sooner. I had another blogger yell at me about that earlier so I’m trying to be more careful. Hope you had a nice weekend.
