I am proud to have a totally, absolutely, and in all other ways, adorable little brother. Here are some recent pictures of him.

Heading out to the garden…



In the garden…



He’s so cute…





Still weeding and probably singing a song from “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” He loves that movie and sings part of one song all the time! 🙂


Don’t you just love little boys?

Yes, I’m still sketching, though probably not as much as I should be. I simply haven’t posted any of them yet. Here’s one that shows the influence of watching Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis for the past couple of weeks. Notice the forties styles…

I tend to find her excessively annoying, so just warn me if I ever am. 🙂
