I'm back!!!!! [Oct. 5th, 2005|10:29 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm back from my trip to Kansas City!

I got to meet my new little niece, Eleanor, she is such a little sweetheart. I got to spend a lot of time with my nephew Theodore too, I love him so much.

We stayed with Kachina & James (and Eleanor & Theo too of course) and had such a fun time. We got to see lots of family members, and even stumbled across my cousin Annie at Barnes & Noble, lol. We also got to go to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival, which was a lot of fun as always. Hey Kachina - I think I also left that ceramic mug I bought at the Festival - I think it's on top of your piano, wrapped up in a bag. If there's any way you could send it to me along with the cellphone, I'd greatly appreciate it!

I can hardly remember what all we did, it's all a blur!

Now I'm home and have so much work to do, it's insane. Please forgive me if I owe you an email, it might take me a couple of days to catch up on everything. I am completely behind as far as this past week's LiveJournal posts too, with no way to catch up, so if there was anything any of you guys posted this past week that is important for me to know, please just post a link here or email me.

We have so many orders to get out and everything, eek. And commissions, commissions, commissions. Right now though, I really need to get some painting done! I'm going to start a new Halloween painting today, and I will be running some SALES on my other Halloween prints soon too. It's starting to be Halloween-ish around here.....

So, now I am going to paint - you can watch me HERE on the webcam!

Welcome back! I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation and spending time with your family. I'll bet your new niece was a baby doll! It is getting Halloweeny around here! Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year!

He's such a good little guy! I asked him, "Do you love your little sister?" and he looks at me with his big eyes and gave her a kiss! Awww......

I think he was trying a little harder for attention with her around though, hehe - but no real "jealousy issues" like you see with some kids!

Hi Sharon! Thank you so much!

Awww that's good that he's happy!! My cousin Rachel is having a second kid and her little girl, Kinsey, doesn't seem like she's going to be particularly thrilled when he/she arrives, she's used to getting the entire attention of the whole room all of the time and so I think she's going to be a bit devestated LOL!!
