art and fears!

 we made a cute tree stamping picture yesterday. i made 2 trees and gave 1 to ellie to make, as she started stamping away, nate came over and quietly said "hey mom, can i make one too?"  i laughed and said yes, i already made you a tree trunk. he's really getting into this art stuff!
 ellie has a HUGE fear of bugs an spiders.  nate has a fake plastic spider that when she saw it, she would literally shake and scream. after working with her the last 4 days on facing this fear, and much chocolate and kisses from daddy, she finally touched it!  yesterday she was so proud to hold the spider and show me
 then she wanted a picture of it!
 such a beautiful girl!
