The Best Guy I Know....


The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God; I call him Dad!


Here is my dad.  He works harder than anyone that I know.  I did this pencil drawing for my parents for Christmas. 

I love the holidays but it seems sometimes it happens so fast you don't have time to enjoy the season.  I wish each and everyone of you a very prosperous New Year!  And thanks for your continued support of my blog.
