And finally, here are Preston's gifts that he made for Elliott and me:
I have been asking for individual family portraits from him for a few years now and by George, he finally started! He painted my portrait first. So for the time being, it looks like I might be a little narcissistic. Just a tad. But he promises the others are coming soon, so we'll keep it up waiting patiently for the other two portraits.
You may remember these prints? Well, I contacted the artist to see if she could make them larger and she said she couldn't. So Preston decided he would paint a similar one himself. Elliott LOVES it. Like, screams "horsey!" every time he goes near his bed and stares at it for a minute, loves it. Does a heart good.
