The 52 Project/Week 9

In an attempt to beat the July heat we decided to popsicle paint.  I decided to call it popsicle paint, because you two couldn’t decide if your paint was a popsicle, or part of an art project.  : )  I basically froze some of your paint, inserted a “handle”, gave you a canvas and let you go to town!IMG_2760IMG_2763IMG_2775IMG_2771IMG_2768IMG_2767IMG_2776 IMG_2778IMG_2782 IMG_2783As with any project involving paint, you were ready to paint handprints Cody!IMG_2805IMG_2806 IMG_2802 Uh oh Cody…you have that wild look in your eyes!IMG_2800 IMG_2799 IMG_2796 Avett, everything became part of your canvas….your face…the table…the house.  : )IMG_2793 IMG_2791  The finished product.  Perfection!IMG_2809

 

The 52 Project- Week 5

Today was sort of a lazy day.  We’ve been so busy traveling and needed a lazy day around the house.  We started this morning crafting with stickers that Shannon Stratton gave you for your birthday…

Cody, every time I handed you a sticker you wanted to taste it…we were choosing different type of frosting stickers and decorations to put on top of pictures of cupcakes…and we all know you love cupcakes!

While we had some downtime Daddy decided to put together the easel that Diane sent you for your birthday. Both of you were a big help to Dad while he put it together!

Once we got the easel together we started drawing with chalk.

For the first time ever Cody started to draw circles.  Here you are letting me know by drawing and saying, “Circles!  Circles!”

Cody, you love being able to wipe the easel clean and start again…

The two of you stood side by side drawing with chalk for quite a while…

And then Avett took over…

There were some chalky handprints left around the playroom…

Cody, you were so focused on your drawing that your feet gave you away.  First, you tried to climb into your drawing…

Then, you were on your tippy toes!

And here, you are kinking up your knee…

Then, you decided to take a break from sorting and check out the back yard.

Then, back to sorting…this time in the back of your car.  : )

Painting is exhausting and you were both soon ready for nap time!
