The Artist

Dawson comes from a long line of artisans. 
Does that mean I'm saying he came from a long line of bread? Because he didn't come from a long line of bread. I know that there is Artisan bread though. But he came from artistic ancestors. Artisan Ancestors. 
I'm pretty sure I should open an art gallery and name it Artisan Ancestors. But, then the gallery would have to display pictures of people that look like bread.
Dawson has always loved to draw. Jason, Jason's dad, and his grandma can all draw.
A month or so ago, Dawson sat down and began drawing the cover to the new Transformer's movie: 
A few months ago he drew Whispering Death (from How to Train Your Dragon). 
If you're reading this and you're pregnant right now, I strongly encourage you to name your child "Whispering Death".
So that no one can claim that I claim favorites, I introduce to you Evan's Art:
He painted this right after his Aunt Bobbie called him to sing him Happy Birthday. So when the painting was complete he told me he wanted to give it to Aunt Bobbie. I said "Oh, Okay, what is the picture"? And he said "It's Mountains"!
Dear Aunt Bobbie, I never sent you this picture. Please frame your laptop and hang it on the wall while it displays this blog post. Thank you.

Choosing the Right Glasses for You: A Tutorial.

I've had glasses since 3rd grade.
Fashionable glasses, I might add.
Only a girl with a mullet and buck teeth can pull off that kind of style.
Of course, when the option to choose a different color became available, I felt the world was at my fingertips. I was confident enough to perform flower girl duties in weddings with ease. 
 Naturally, I inherited this from my mother.
Dawson recently busted his glasses for the umpteenth time. In my attempt to salvage them, I put superglue on the break and the glue ran down onto the frames. I tried to get the super glue off the lenses before it dried and the paper towel stuck to the glue, stuck to the lenses. Ever an optimist, I googled how to remove superglue from plastic lenses, and google said to use fingernail polish remover. (Some other dummy has done the same thing!)   The fingernail polish remover took care of the paper towel!  Score. But the glue remained. 
Thankfully, we have a warranty on Dawson's glasses, so we went to pick up the new pair and this gave Evan the idea that he would look suave in glasses. 
I agree, don't you?
For those of you who need advice on the best frames to fit your style, pay close attention to Evan. The difference is all in the face you're making.
Large frames with a glare and somewhat puckered lips look great paired with messy hair.

Square frames that have a purplish/blue hue will turn any frown into a smile.
I would like to take this time to also mention that Jason stopped me from throwing away the cracked, super glued pair of glasses because "Dawson needs a backup pair".
