Labor Day Weekend



Labor Day weekend had more than one meaning this year. My neice sent me a message on Sept. 5th that simply read, Water Broke 4:45 A.M. At the same time, I had an ATC challenge with the theme word, "Water". I had wanted to do something else other than the obvious lake and ocean theme and here my clue was in front of me! The medium too, would be water color:)

Here is the result of my labor and I can hardly wait to get a photo of my niece's labor. I am a great aunt for the first time to Mason Hendrick Lauckner weighing in at 8 lbs. 3 oz. and 20 1/2" long. Born Sept. 5, 2009.

Update: Here's the little guy now!
