My Special Surprise for Mom


I have to show you the special surprise 
that I commissioned for Mom
as a birthday surprise from Me


 Mom and I both have February birthdays
and I wanted to do something very special
 to show Mom how much I appreciate 
all the love and patience 
she shows me everyday.


Just before my birthday we were visiting our friends at Sketches with Dogs
Lynne is such a talented lady, she not only creates 
the Mini Me's that you see all over blogville 
but she is also a talented artist. 
And she has passed that talent on 
to her son Lee

When I saw the beautiful portrait of Angel Bridget
 that Lee had done for his Mum
I remembered hearing Mom say that it is
  time to have something to remember 
our little Angel Olive


 I think I told you that
 I think Mom loves me extra hard
 because of Olive

So I asked Lee if he would do a portrait for my Mom


A portrait of Olive


Isn't it beautiful

I think Mom will love it

don't you?
