From the first day she heard about this contest, she had set her sights on winning a ribbon. It's no wonder she could hardly contain herself as she waited for her name to be called. Jumping up and down, grinning from ear to ear... She was beyond excited!
She's been big into drawing giraffes lately.
She even took a few extra steps with this one by drawing it, cutting it out, and then gluing it down on another piece of a paper and adding a few extra touches...
And in case you noticed that little brown pile underneath the giraffe's tail, Abby insists that it is a ROCK with a bug crawling on it.
I'm sure that's what the judges thought too. At least, I hope so.
Congratulations, baby girl! You believed in yourself, drew an awesome giraffe, and won that ribbon! We are so proud of you!!!
