The First Artistic Rendering of Pasqualina

Yesterday I got an amazing care package in the mail full of goodies that one doesn’t normally find in southern Italy — things like candy corn, Ziploc bags, peanut butter cups, chocolate chips, and Hershey’s kisses. There were even two doggie toys in there for my girls Luna and Stella. This was Stella about five minutes after I gave her one of the toys:

But by far the best part of the whole package was this drawing by Sarah, who I’m told simply adores Pasqualina and Pinta:

The drawing is a wonderful artistic rendering of the photo of Baby Pasqualina that appears in the Nanny Goats in Panties 2011 Calendar. I took the drawing over to show Pasqualina yesterday, and I know she liked it because she wanted to eat it — the highest form of goat flattery.

Thanks so much to Sarah and Sarah’s mom, Beth, who along with her teenage son Ryan, blogs at A Diabetic Life about Ryan’s ongoing challenge of living with Type 1 Diabetes. Care packages are great, but care packages with drawings of baby goats? Doesn’t get better than that.
