A Fun Day!!

We got to see one of our favorite authors/illustrators today - we drove to see Jan Brett!!  What a treat - she read to us from her new book, Gingerbread Friends.  Then she drew a picture to show us how she illustrates her books, and she ended with signing books and letting us take pictures with her - I am telling you what - we had such a FUN time!!  And Chloe's words tonight??  "I know I am going to be an artist - just like Jan Brett."

What a great thing to do! Do you have it at the OC library? Sounds like I should read it to the grandkids.

What fun! And, I'm quite sure that Miss Chloe will grow up to be whatever her heart desires. Emily wants to be an artist/vet/singer/mommy when she grows up!

I'm envious as I love her books and have quite a few. I started off buying them to have when my first granddaughter was little but love them so much that I have bought more to add to MY collection. I wish she would come to our Barnes & Noble as I'd be there.

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
