going once, going twice...

hopefully, SOLD at the FBCS fall carnival silent auction this coming friday night!!!!!

what am i speaking of you might wonder? well, let me explain!

about a month ago, i was asked to help with the kindergarten's art project that was to be auctioned at the school carnival on october 2nd (yes, three small days before i give birth)...even though jeffrey thought i was nuts to take that on...i decided it was "doable", and gladly accepted the challenge! they wanted each grade to have a theme that incorporated each child's hand print, fingerprint, or thumbprint!

well, what started out as helping out with k-5 quickly turned into meredith painting ALL of the art projects for k-3, k-4, k-5, and first grade!!!!! i think i could take up residence at first baptist, and maddie officially thinks she is enrolled in gran's class as a four year old!!!! thankfully, i LOVE this kind of thing...and while the timing has been a bit unfavorable, i finished the last one yesterday!

i think they turned out pretty cute...and hopefully, all the moms and dads that will be bidding will think so too!

k-3 : "where the wild things are"

k-4 : "garden of knowledge"

k-5 : "we're all a buzz..."

1st grade : "ABC's & 123's"

Christina and I just got through looking at your wonderful art work for the carnival! I'm sure they will all go for lots of money! Be very proud of yourself for doing this so soon before the baby will be here.
It's been great having Amelia with her Mimi and being with Christina and Matthew as well. I will be sad to see them leave tomorrow.
Once again, congrats on a great job!

These are just too precious for words. There will be parents fighting for them! I can't wait to build our new house and have you do some things for the kid's new rooms. It will be about January, so that will give you a little break after the Hope all goes well with baby #3 : )
