Playing with our Christmas Presents

In case you missed it, I got *this* for Christmas:
And Adam got this:
And I used MY Christmas present to put together Adam’s.
I must say, it was pretty slick!  I like my new drill!
And Adam ADORES this easel.  We put the legs on upside down (folded up inside of the easel) because if we put them on right, he wouldn’t have been able to reach.  It has a white board on one side and a chalkboard on the other, but his favorite thing to do is paint on the attached roll of paper.  Hubby’s sister got him the paints, so I made her come over to paint with him.


She took her eyes off of him for one second…
…which is why we used one of Daddy’s chore t-shirts as a paint shirt.
Yes, it’s messy, but I also think it’s worth it!  The kid LOVES his paintings!

Would you like to comment?

  1. Ah the joys of finger painting! Too much fun!

  3. Can't wait to see some of his art work!

  4. Santa brought my kids an easel when they were little - they loved it and used it all the time for years!

  5. LOVE IT! Cash James turns 2 in February so i'm thinking this may be his birthday gift. And better his hair than your WALLS :)
