Paint By Numbers...Or Not...

At first Jax needed a little help to get into painting...
Then he didn't need any help at all!

He progressively got dirtier and dirtier as the painting was created.


Our finished product was a beautiful painting and a beautiful painted boy



A close-up of the painting

Last Monday we painted a picture for Family Home Evening. We have been meaning to paint this picture for my parent's new guest bedroom for nearly a year now, but we've never known what to paint. Chad had the brilliant idea to just put some paint on a plate and let Jax go wild... and so we did. It ended up being a very fun and messy night. I like Jaxon's picture so much though that I hate to give it away. I think we are just going to have to do this activity again so I can get a Jaxon original in my house.

Ha, Ha!

We get an original Jaxon in our house, and you don't...Ninner, Ninner, Ninner!

Don't even THINK of attempting to steal that masterpiece, 'cause every blog reader knows it belongs to ME!

Can't wait to see the three of you in a mere 4.5 days...and the original Jaxon BETTER be available!

Love you (but I'm not afraid to resort to violence if necessary to take what's rightfully mine)!

XOXO,

What a cute boy especially with paint all over him. I can't wait to see the picture in person.
