Limited Time Only: Nila's DrawQuest Art is Viewable Online

DrawQuest was an ipad app that Nila absolutely loved! Everyday, they would post a new drawing prompt and she'd draw something - or she'd just color one of the older ones. She especially seemed to like the one where she could design her own teddy bear.

DrawQuest is no longer a thing, but they've made the galleries available for about 30 days. I was able to download all of Nila's art, though/

Here's an example of her work from April 2013:

See the whole thing here:

You'll notice a few of the pieces are actually mine. I like to think it's pretty obvious which is which.

Christmas List 2014

Nila is SO Excited! 
Yes, it's October. But it's only 10 weeks from Christmas and I know that, soon enough, people will start asking me what Nila wants for Christmas!

Typically, when people ask, I look at them like a deer in the headlights; I always draw a blank!

To combat this, I am posting this, so I can send people the link! It only took me 7 years.

Nila is 7

I'm about a month behind, but Nila celebrated her 7th birthday on September 1st! We had a party the Saturday before with a Frozen theme.
I mean, of course it was a Frozen theme, right? Elsa is Nila's favorite Disney princess and Frozen has all the best songs, including Let it Go, which and Angie and I are absolutely forbidden from singing.

Date Night with Nila

Before I left work this afternoon, Angie let me know that Nila was planning to take me out for a daddy-daughter date night. Just me and her.

When I got home, Nila was dressed in her finest and told me we were going to 5 Guys and Whit's - she knows how to plan a date!

We obviously had a great time! She's a great date. She even held the door for me.

Nila is a Kindergartener

Nila is a Kindergartener now. It's crazy to believe that she's old enough, but she is and she's pretty great at it. She is her class' citizen of the month for October. Angie says it's for the whole quarter. She's at the French immersion school, so I really have no idea what's going on. She might be citizen of the year. Here's a picture from her first day of school: Here's her first official school picture:
