Coloring outside the lines

In an attempt to keep the kids occupied on a rainy Saturday afternoon, we got to work making a Father's Day gift for Jay. While we were picking out a picture frame to paint, Addi spotted cute little birdhouses and asked to paint one of those, too. And since I hadn't found anything to get my dad for Fathers Day, I quickly agreed.

As soon as Sam was napping I set up a paint area and Addi got right to work. And for once, her not wearing clothes was perfectly acceptable. I very much approved of her using all of her creative juices on this one little birdhouse - as apposed to my walls. She has a knack for "artistically enhancing" many things in my house without my approval.

Addi had a great time painting - at least until she got yellow paint in her eye. We finished up quickly after that. I painted Sam's house and when she woke up she helped by stamping her feet on the roof.

Happy Father's Day, Jay, and all the other dads out there!
