Played Soccer! :)

Today, my little sister's BFF came over. Usually they are really annoying, but today was fun because we played soccer together! My sister and her friend on 1 team, me and myself on the other. They scored the first goal, but I ended up winning!! (OBVIOUSLY) ;) But my sister did have the freak-out moment where she got really angry, and scary, and funny to look at!!!!!

Drew Cute Animals!

Yesterday I got really cored, so I decide to draw really cute animals! I started with the American Cocker Spaniel puppy, which is soo cute! I looked online for a starting picture to help me off.
