I love painting my Christmas cards, I have done that for the last few years. I paint an original and then upload the image to be printed onto cards. This year I was feeling a bit Scroogish and wasn't going to send any cards. I wasn't even going to paint a card but I also belong to an online watercolor group and every year we paint one original painting as a card and send it to an exchange person. I love this group of artist and really enjoy doing the exchanges with them. So I painted this cardinal and decided I liked it well enough to have some cards printed. My Christmas cards will be late this year but at least I am sending some. Cindi got the original and she liked it. I don't paint birds very often so this was working outside my comfort zone.

I took Nathan to see "tangled" and then we rode on a train and then we saw Santa. He proceeded to explain to Santa what spiderman does with his webshooter and how he wants one. What a fun day remembering the magic of Christmas time for kids
