SOMETHING FOR ME…SOMETHING FOR YOU!

PHOEBE HOLIDAY BEDROOM!
PHOEBE HOLIDAY BEDROOM!

Phoebe’s middle name is “Holiday” after the incomparable Billie Holiday . All of the kids have “jazz” middle names…Tate “Coltrane” and Cooper “Ellington”. Big Jazz Fans!

"DRAGGYDANDY" is Phoebe's nickname. It came to be that when she was a baby. Phoebe and Tate are 21 months apart. Tate wanted to name her "Raggedy Andy" but could not string all of those sounds together and somehow it came out as "Draggedydandy"...overtime, it was shortened to "Draggy" and Draggydandy"...I painted this portrait of little Draggy when Phoebe was 6 years old.
