Hello Friends!!!

Today I am 7!  We’ve spent the last couple weeks celebrating.  While we’re taking things day by day around here, we have been having fun with a full house. The whole family is here and I’ve continued to work hard on my artwork.  My Aunt Kat and I are making a movie right now based on a book I wrote called “The 3 Spies”.  Stay tuned, we might do a screening.

We had an awesome family party on Sunday, some cool animals came to the house, including a hedgehog, chinchilla and some guinea pigs.  My friends at school had a party for me today too … We had pizza and cake and I got in a little trouble shooting cake at my favorite teachers – I’m a pretty good shot with a plastic spoon!

My 7th Birthday

Today was a good day … Love you guys.

  1. A late happy birthday John! I’m glad it was a good one. I loved the pictures – particularly the one of you holding Irene!

    I’m in Washington D.C. this week and it’s snowing! Someone didn’t get the spring message.

    Andrew and Kat sent me a picture of something that’s almost finished, but I think it might be a surprise, so I won’t say anything more except that you did an awesome job! I can’t wait to get the print and cards I ordered from your art sale. I was so disappointed not to be there!

    lots of love,

    Andrew’s mom Anne

  10. Happy Birthday John!!! Thanks for sharing some of your pictures from your weekend! I was pretty jealous when I saw you holding a chinchilla and a hedgehog! Aren’t they soooo cute??

Glad to hear you had a great birthday!!! We’re always thinking of you over here! Happy Birthday! xoxo

    Thinking of you and your family every single day.

  28. WOW! So glad you were all able to celebrate! AND thanks so much for sharing the news and pictures with us! Thinking of you all….Brenda and family

  29. Dear John, I met you a couple years ago at a Christmas Eve party at your Aunt Becky and Uncle Pete’s house. I thought you were an amazing kid then, when you spent hours working on a sticker number picture. You explained to me how you knew where to put each tiny colored sticker to create a piece of art. Now you are creating your own original art work. I chose the tin man with a heart to frame and hang in my kitchen because the colors go so well on the yellow walls and because I think having a big heart is so important.. Thank you so much for sharing your works of art. I will send the note cards to my most special friends!
    Hugs, from your Uncle Pete’s Mom.
    P.S. You are now the most awesome 7 year old that I know!!!!!!

  30. Happy Birthday, John, though I’m a little late! My daughter Sophie and I are sending you a birthday card. I’m very glad you had such a wonderful birthday; congratulations on 7 times around the Sun!!!
    Much love,
    Janet and the Demeters in California

  31. Couldn’t wait to see you and your family today but I got sick ! Bad cold and such . I miss all of you , and hope to see you soon ! Love ya , Nurse Jenn
