Tis the Season for a Trip to the Museum

My sweet, loving baby nephew, Bobby, and I under the gorgeous Christmas tree at our local magnificent museum: "Philbrook Museum of Art".

Bobby's momma and my twin sister, Andrea, and our grandmother "Nana" Sharee (Bobby's GREAT grandmother) went to the Philbrook Museum today to find the perfect masterpiece for Andrea to write her essay for her Art Appreciation class final. We enjoyed gazing at all of the beautiful works of art, remembering our favorites to come back to and consider for Andrea's essay....we were looking for something that Andrea could really relate to...and finally once we found it we knew right away that we didn't need to look any further. It was a breathtaking sculpture of a mother and her baby boy carved out of marble! I can't wait to read her completed essay! I took some pictures of Andrea and her darling baby boy, Bobby, with this amazing sculpture...here is one of them!
After we found Andrea's art piece for her essay final, we took some pictures by the Philbrook Christmas tree then sipped on tea and shared a decadent dessert, a moist lemon cake with blueberries and fancy cheese filling, at the exquisite cafe Villa inside the museum. We then went upstairs to look at the many adorable homemade gingerbread houses created by local Tulsa schools and organizations...they were incredible and so cute! I love gingerbread houses...if you would like to admire some charming little gingerbread houses, check out these I found on Etsy!"Gingerbread House Medium" by Lollipops Sugar Shoppe.

Going to the Philbrook was so nice. I think we ladies got some creative ideas on Christmas decorating from the exhibit that was showing. Looking forward to writing this art essay. :-)

Best of luck Andy on your art essay! Yes, we did get some great Christmas decorating ideas at the Philbrook exhibits...I still want to make that recycled magazine clipping ring-garland for our mini Christmas tree!
