The best Christmas present!

My daughter-in-law and son, Shane, who earns his living as an illustrator,  surprised me with illustrated storyline portraits of my three grandchildren, inspired by one of the their favorite books, "A Series of Unfortunate Events".    The two eldest grandkids are on their way to rescue grandbaby #3.  What a wonderful gift!  Sure beats the ordinary grandkid portraits!
