December 2001: Pen and Colored Pencils.
Caption: Before the house that Ivy built. . . .
Explanation: The newly adopted child Ivy has her hair groomed by Adele, while Weaver and Dax prepare the berries and Alix pours the water. This and some fish or wild game were typical of their early meals together.
IVY TRIVIA: Alix was the only one who was not pleased at Ivy’s arrival; she made things a lot easier, and that was exactly what Alix didn’t like. He did not appreciate her being assigned to help him with his fishing, and often commanded her to simply wait or act as lookout, only letting her help if he had no other choice. He never did take a liking to her. And the feeling definitely became mutual.
