Show and Tell Friday



Today is Show and Tell Friday at "Kelli's House". To participate you are supposed to show something special to you, such as a collection, etc.

These are pictures of my children which have hung in this exact spot for almost 25 years. The artist did these portraits by looking at a picture of the children. She used to sit in the Mall and draw pictures from pictures with chalk. In the bottom right corner she always signed her name and "PTL". (Praise the Lord).

The little boy in the middle is Josh, who is in heaven. :o) He was born with a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. You can read more about this condition HERE. There is hope for these children with today's more advanced medical knowledge!

Please visit Kelli's House for more "Show and Tell" Friday.

Oh wow...this is a chilling [but warm fuzzy type] show and tell. I love it! And I love the fact that they've been on the same wall for a quarter of a century!!!! So, so precious.

My Show n Tell is posted now, hope you can drop by. It's going to be a 3-parter so it won't take so long for loading.
