One of my favorite parts of being a parent is cleaning up at the end of the day (wait.....let me finish because it's not the cleaning part.......) when the kids are in bed and finding their artwork that they randomly draw during the day. I found these the other day.  They made me happy.

I'm not sure who drew this one.  It has characteristics of Emily, Bradley, and Sarah's artwork.  I'll have to ask them in the morning.  Sometimes they do combined efforts. It looks like the large-nosed stick figure has a tail.  Or at least I hope that's a tail. Maybe it's a kickstand.

This is definitely Sarah's.  I don't dare ask her what the picture is depicting in fear she might say "You." I mean, I know I've given birth to seven children and all, but this seems a bit exaggerated, don't you think? The top of my head is not balding either nor are my legs twisted backwards. It looks like a chunk of hair is in the process of falling off (under left arm) while anonymous illustrated girl dances. It's too bad the scan doesn't correctly show the flourescent orange dress.

This is Sarah's.  I think it's a subconscious fantasy of hers that she might be tall one day.

Dancing Bananas?  They must be popular because there are stick figures flocking to see them. Not sure who the artist is, but probably Sarah.  Sarah spends many hours drawing.

I'm pretty sure this is Sarah's. I think it's a Dancing Queen Snowwoman who really likes Christmas. I don't know for sure if it's of the snowman species, but the three tiered body, coal-like mouth, and gnarled tree branch fingers were my clue.

I can't wait to see what I get next week....
