Painting and Pumpkins

For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on a big room re-do for the kids which has involved  A LOT of painting.

The kids wanted to help.  They really did.  And I let them paint one little section of the closet.

But then I couldn’t bear to see more paint drip drip drip onto the carpet,

So I decided to buy a white shower curtain and let them paint it.

And I sent them out in the yard with paints and brushes and a shower curtain…

And the weather was perfect

And the sun was shining in all the right places…

And I thought, “Ya know…they’re going to ruin their clothes.  Why don’t we just let them paint in their undies?”

And Marshall looked at me like I was nuts, but he obliged(because he knew the plan was brilliant).

And I took some really great pictures.  Really, really great pictures.

Pictures that I really, really love.  A lot.

And I want to share them with you, but…I just can’t.

It just doesn’t seem right to show them in their undies online.
(Well, baby in diapers isn’t quite the same…)

But they had so much fun and the pictures were so cute!

Here are a few…of, you know, happily painted hands and feet and such…
