A Skunk for Morgan

During a visit here in Maine, Morgan, her Daddy Craig, and Bumpa decided to go for a walk one mild evening in the fall. Morgan was probably 7ish. It was dark as they started out and Bumpa started telling about how the skunks come out after dark. He told her they would probably see one and if she didn't want to have any "stinky" occurrences, she had better take along some celery just in case. Doesn't everyone know that Skunks just LOVE celery? (really???)
She got scared, turned around, and booked it back to the safety of the house. Ever since then, Morgan and her Bumpa try to "skunk" each other and see who can outdo the other one. It has been a lot of fun.

Bunnies for Gaby

Gaby picked Bunnies to love after Bumpa started a "skunk" relationship with Morgan, and then Mia decided she loved Ducks! So we have catered to these choices for about 3 years now.

Duckies for Mia

I've decided to do a painting for all my grandchildren, something that they are fond of. It is so enjoyable for me to brings me such joy. I thought it would be a good gift that would go with them through the ages of time.
