|Macy's Illumination original watercolor 9 x 12|
Thanksgiving down, Christmas to go! Can you believe that we rapidly approaching Christmas? Where has this year gone. We had a wonderful Turkey Day. We stayed home this year so it was just us but we still got out the fine china:) Being a military family we can't always celebrate with our extended family and sometimes not even our immediate, I am extremely grateful that my hubby was here this year. Because of our lifestyle I find it really important to make each Holiday amazing! Having two little boys also make the holidays so exciting. Seeing each one through their eyes is so much fun.

This year on Thanksgiving we started of course with the Macy's Parade. Steven loved it!! He's obsessed with the blow up decorations that you see at all the stores, and consequently in our yard, so the Macy's parade was like the mother of all blow up figures. Every float that came on the screen he was exuberant about. In keeping with this theme I painted the front of Macy's with their beautiful lighted tree. It's part of the Illuminations 2010 in New York. My friend Pat gets to go each year (lucky lady) and she graciously gave me permission to use it as my reference. (It's her birthday today, so Happy Birthday, Pat) This painting is so fun and festive, and who doesn't love Christmas lights.

Steven got in on the action this week and did a Christmas drawing for you. It's ornaments and lights. He absolutely loves Christmas and the decorating that goes along with it.
