Sweetness from Cafe Pray...
It's always fun to play with noses
on famous art...
They puzzled over my hand-drawn pieces of Picasso's Woman & Bird
and then played "Pin the Nose on the Picasso"
After a scavenger hunt, and treats,
we made wee matchboxes des Paris.
Ah the joys of the small things in life!
Paper. Art-making. A clamor of cousins. Laughter. Balloons.
Joyeux anniversaire! Happy birthday!
Here's to finding joy in the small things and the good things, my friends!
C'est la belle vie!
