Matthan by Aubie.
Aubie's art has gotten really impressive lately. She just started drawing people a few months ago, but within 10 or so people pictures, she moved from the head-with-arms-and-legs-attached stage to drawing a body and hands and feet with fingers and toes. She is such an artist in the perfectionist sense. She will start out drawing a person, let's say me. But because she doesn't have the skills to draw something how it looks or doesn't draw as well as Aunt Leah, she will change it and say, "oh, that's not you, Mommy. that's just an old lady, ugly man, bear ..." or whatever it looks like. Then some of her pictures, like the onion in the Curious George picture, start out as doodling and then she calls it what it looks like. I'm not sure if that's the case with the parrot or not. I don't think it is--I've seen parrots that look like that which she could have copied--but I'm not positive.
Curious George and the onion.
This a mermaid, water, and fish.

for a free meal at Chick-fil-A? This past Friday was Cow Appreciation Day, and though I do not appreciate the cows (their time has come and gone, in my opinion), I do appreciate Chick-fil-A enough to do whatever it takes to get free food! As do my two little baby cows. Aren't they adorable?
This little cow acted a bit more like a little piggy!
