birthday painting

i think we're starting a new tradition here at the bennett house. for jack's birthday, i painted a picture for him, and we all signed the sides. i decided to paint a picture for maggie's birthday, too. when i showed emmie and jack, the first thing they said is, "oh, mom! we have to sign the sides of it!" and now that we've done these twice, i can't possibly not do one for emmie.  in a few years, i hope we have a whole collection of birthday paintings with signatures on the sides! {i think maggie liked the picture, don't you?}
