Right now I'm on this apple kick! I have loved apples my whole life but... the last few years, not so much. I would pass up an apple 9/10 times just because I didn't feel like it - unless, however it was a Honeycrisp apple which are of course the best apples in the world.
This time of year Honeycrisps are not in season, so I settle for the Braeburn apple (above). Yumm, this is one great apple! I don't even crave my Honeycrisp (see below) right now :-)

They bought a wig for the shoot because my hair wasn't long enough for the look they needed. The wig (below) is what I had to work with and in the end, the final cover, you would never know the wig was so gigantic!

We rented the documentary My Kid Could Paint That and were very interested in this child genius! Marla was four when the documentary was made, she is now nearly nine years old. She has been painting since she was two and selling her paintings for thousands of dollars! The documentary really piqued my interest and I've been reading up on Marla online since we finished it. The documentary deals with the hoax that 60 Minutes brought up that Marla's dad must be helping her paint. If you are interested in documentaries or child prodegies I would reccomend this documentary. You can decide for yourself if Marla paints with help or without! You can see more of Marla on her website here!
If you are not going to watch the documentary or if you already have I would also reccomend reading this article partially written by Marla's father.
The painting at the top of the post is one of hers that I love. It's called Mosquito Bite.

This song has been so encouraging to me! I decided that this would become my prayer to Jesus for 2009. It's been so wonderful to blast this song in the car and cry out to the Lord to awaken me!! Please enjoy the song... I haven't watched the video but I know the song rocks!
