You know you're jealous.

One thing I've never blogged about? The amazing painting my brother-in-law Adam made for me for Christmas! My family does a rotation, and this last Christmas it was Amy's family's year to have me. Knowing what a great artist Adam is, when Amy asked for ideas, all I truly wanted was for Adam to draw me some sort of Disney picture (I am, after all, the biggest Disney fan of all time). Well, they tricked me and wrapped a dvd case, so you can imagine my surprise on Christmas morning when I expected to unwrap a movie and instead found a blank dvd case with this note tucked inside....
Of course I hurried into my parents' room and pulled out a big (24X30 to be exact) present from under the bed, then rushed back to the present chair to open it in front of everyone. Pretty much the second I pulled the wrapping paper off I started crying, like not just one tiny tear, but full out streams going down both sides of my face. I loved it so much I couldn't stop myself! The best part of all is that on the backside is a jungle scene Adam had painted and it had been on an easel in his study the whole time! I even asked him about it one day because a little bit of the blue from my painting had gotten on the top corner of the jungle scene and I thought the kids had gotten into it or something. Ha ha! They fooled me twice. Like my friend George W. says, "Fool me once, shame on.....shame on you. If you fool me, you can't get fooled again."


My masterpiece.

Oh my heck--I am such a loser I started to cry when I read this post! The picture is awesome, and I just imagined you opening it, and I couldn't help myself! It wasn't out of control or anything, but whatever. I love you, Granny Panties, and I always will!
