A Landscape Composed by Adjoa

Adjoa was asked to draw a picture of her family at church last week. This is what came home.

I added labels to explain everything she drew.

She had some help with drawing the chuck-it Robert is holding and the ball {this is a fetch toy we use when playing with Eden}

I love that we have Monster as part of our family. That's his name, by the way, Monster. He plays with Adjoa all the time. I'm not sure if this is a Halloween thing or if our child is nuts. Probably a little of both. Don't worry. He's not a scary monster. Just a monster who growls and chases and occasionally possesses our child.

You can't really tell, but apparently she drew herself trying to go inside the house, but the door was locked and they key is somewhere by the cars. I wasn't really clear on what exactly was the key.

Her details crack me up. Like the fact that she drew all those cars parked on our street {pretty accurate, too}. The paper-bark maple we just planted in our yard even has an orange-ish bark. And I don't know if you can tell, but Mom and Adjoa have glittery bows and earrings. Dad was about to get a glittery bow and earring too, but Adjoa was convinced that maybe a tie would be better for daddy. Oh, and Eden has a glitter collar and glitter bone.

Anyway, just thought I'd share. It makes it easier to throw some of these things away when I can scan them and save them here.

Love the bows and the earrings. She notices everything, doesn't she?! Hope to see you guys this week if we are all on the mend :)

Okay, we are loving the glitter! Adjoa is way beyond my 5 year old in the drawing department. And I love the detail! No monster here, but we do have an imaginary bird.

Quite the talented Ar-tist (ar-tee-st)!

I love that the dog has lots of legs!

Quite detailed!

So wise to scan! Amazing! I wish I had that technology way-back-when when my kids were little.

Creativity is not a problem for Adjoa! She has a creative mind and a cute, sweet personality! Thanks for sharing her art work!

Thanks for sharing! I love the drawing phase of the blob body with legs--she's got it down! Love it.
