Today is Jeremy's dads birthday and we celebrated it yesterday. I had the boys do a piece of painting for their papa. I bought several stretched out canvases for a couple projects I have (a later post when it's complete) and saved some for the boys. I bought some acrylic paint, paint brushes and sponges to help them make their masterpiece. I tried to buy colors that matched my in-laws' master bedroom but once the paint got mixed the colors only kinda mattered.
Bryland had a blast and Jackson would have eaten the paint so we gave him a paint brush and he made several strokes, then slammed his other hand and went crazy. I got this idea from an episode of Jon and Kate plus 8...but they had more time, helpers, supplies, etc. So I worked with what I had. The picture is of the masterpiece that will go for millions in a few years. Little did Jeremy's parents know we gave them a piece of art that would allow them to retire sooner than they had hoped. :) (Also in the picture, is of the top of a dining table that I found at an estate sale a month ago.)
