A Mom's gotta brag.........


Didn't I tell you I had 2 beautiful and smart daughters? Well, here's my oldest, Kristin. I will introduce you to Kathryn in a later post.
Not only beautiful and smart but creative too. She is in her second year of Dental School in Charleston,
at the Medical University of South Carolina.



She has wanted to be a Dentist since she was in high school... and is well on her way.









This weekend she sent us a picture of pumpkins that she and her friend carved... well, being in dental school, her friend Lynn carved a pumpkin with perfect teeth (on the left), my Kristin, on the other hand carved the one on the right.... can you tell what it is ?!? I couldn't until she sent a picture of it lit up.... check this sculpture out! :













A big fan of Star Wars .... the evil Darth Vader! Unreal, isn't it?! mmmm... I wonder where she got her artistic flair from?!? She didn't use any patterns, just looked at a picture of him .





x I'm not sure how this happened, but if you click on this you can see the bagels that she made from scratch... Ummmm







This is Jack... Kristin's friend ,Katie's yorkie.... awww what a cutie!






Here's a painting she made for a friend last fall... I sure would like one of those too..... (hint hint)




We are so proud of our girls... it's great when they come home for the weekend and visit. Here's Kristin relaxing on the porch. Y'all save your dental work , two years from now she'll be opening her practice and would love to see you!

Diane said...

Rose, she's gorgeous and so artistic! I was absolutely drooling for a bagel btw, (drooling is such an unattractive trait too). If she opens a practice out my way, I'll change dentists! :0} Diane

Oh my, but she is beautiful! And when I first looked at her pumpkin I thought it was Yoda!!!!!!! ROFL! Hey, at least I had the right movie!

Those bagels look soooooooooo yummy! Can she share the recipe with us? I'd love to try that!

Your daugther is so pretty and quite talented. She is also lucky to have such a great mom! I just found your blog and love it....when are you going to show some Santa's?????? By the way, your dog is so cute. We have a yorkie and her name is Maggie...she is featured on my blog occasionally too!

Shelia said...

Yes, you do have a gorgeous daughter! Very talented, too!! She's can give shots, drill the teeth, carve pun'kins and paint and still manage to look pretty!
BE a sweetie,
Shelia :)

santamaker said...

Thanks so much Ann, you lovely lady! I will try to get her to reveal her bagel making secrets... watch out Einstein bagels, you're going down!

Diane said...

Rose, Thanks for the moral support! I needed it! Bet I have at least 6 porcelain Barbies & you can imagine what I paid for most. Their value is zilch! Maybe I'll donate them someday... Diane

santamaker said...

Thank you Pat and Shelia, your comments are always appreciated!

Jill said...

Wow! Check out those pumpkins! You should have seen mine last year! That's a thought for a Halloween blog: Jill's disaster pumkins. :)

tardevil said...

The next Miss South Carolina in the making!!! Seriously, she's beautiful...I know you're proud. I hope the guy was HOT...you know, the "friend" she gave the painting to b/c if I were you, I'd be upset if "he" (the friend) wasn't and her mom didn't get it b/c it was too cool! LOL!

sarah said...

and phew that pumpkin is soooo good, can you belive how creative that is? and how patient she must be...makes me feel pretty pathetic lol!

You have every right to brag! What a beautiful girl. I believe she is what they call the whole package! She would look great with my 21 yr old son. I think you met him over at Susan's blog. Check him out and see what I mean. You've done a great job. Can't wait to meet her sister. It's early morning here and those bagels look really good. Does she deliver?

Your daughter is beautiful as well as smart and very creative! I bet she takes after you...

Susan (Moonlight and Magnolias on RMS) said...

Rose...my son's pediatric dentist was a woman and she used to have a sign in her waiting room that said, "Don't tell your daughter to marry a doctor, tell her to become one." :-) Well, girl...you will soon never have to pay for dental work again! :-) Kristin is lovely! Susan
