Lara is Bob Ross

Here is the finished work:

The story says, "Once upon a time there was a family and we were in their house. Jakey was already born but then a baby sister was in mommy's tummy. And then she came out and we played together and I played with her and tickled her for a long time. Jakey is born but he is at the grocery store. He is at the grocery store with Nancy in New York. He ate a big dinner with her and then he crawled into his bed and he slept. The end."

I love that this is apparently what my hair looks like "when you need a haircut, mommy," and that Jakey's absence from the picture is explained by his jaunt to New York to do some shopping.

(Oh, and no worries, I'm not actually pregnant. This is all wishful thinking on Lara's part!)

Now that's what I call a story that has all of the ingredients: love, romance, birth, family reunions all set against the background of some important economic issues... Go Lara!

That is a truly well done picture. The detail is amazing. I love the sizes of the people and the matching shirts.

Good job Lara! love-nancy
