What would you paint if you could?

If you could paint any subject for a painting in your living room what would you paint? I have this big blank space I need to do a painting for in my living room but I'm so concerned with making an interesting piece and a comfy place for people to be that I talk myself into circles about the subject of the painting. So what would you paint if you could?

Joffre Jr. has a broken femur

So Joffre Jr. broke his femur (thigh bone). He was playing tackle with another child from church and just fell wrong. It was very weird. He is in a cast that goes from above the waist down one whole leg. He can't even sit up the poor guy. 6 weeks of lying in bed for a 3 year old. He's doing great so far. He is such a good natured little guy. He'll probably end up watching more movies than I like but coloring and puzzles only go so far. Joffre has hijacked the camera so I can't take pictures still but soon I will rescue it. You will see my nifty new fence and my sweet son in his blue cast. Say a prayer for his leg to heal well without complications.

Fence of Love

I went on vacation for a week to my parents and had a great time. I forgot my camera like a ninny though. I came back on Mother's Day (much tanner than before) and to my surprise my backyard was fenced in with a nice new wooden fence. My husband put up this fence himself (with some help) to surprise me for Mother's Day. Ahh, amore. I forgot to take a picture today but I'll post a picture tomorrow. We have been having some security issues and were a bit worried about the kids. Now I can turn my back and weed the garden without being afraid they will run in the road. It's fantastic. He did it in 2 days. Now I want to go on vacation again. Maybe I'll get a gazebo this time.

Today I'm hoping to plant most of my garden. I already am getting strawberries and my onions are growing. I'm having serious battles with the birds over my strawberries. They are tasty. I also am happy to see my flowers blooming. The tulips and daffodils are done , the iris are blooming and my peonies are about to bloom. The pictures don't do justice to the colors of these flowers but it is the best I can do. I have more room this year and I'm hyped to try more stuff. I'm leaving for W. Palm Beach with the kids to visit the fam and I'm nervous about how my garden will fare at this fragile stage.
