Judah....the young artist!

So I know I often have pictures of Isabelle on here drawing or painting away. However, today I looked over at sweet Judah and there he was sitting and drawing. Such a doll. He kept bending over really really close to the paper to color-such a little artist:) Enjoy the few pictures I tried to snap of him before he was aware of me.
And yes, he is coloring on my HYACKS phone book:)
Have a beautiful weekend!

Painting is in the air

I bought Isabelle her own watercolor set....and let me just say that the new kid's sets are amazing!! Skip the brush they include and get your kiddo (or yourself) a nice one and let them go to town. Here is my little artist at work.....

I tested out the paints myself-creating a little birthday present for my niece....and let me just say they are really nice to work with. No joke!

(sidenote: look at the beautiful tree blooming in our front yard right now!!)

High Point: snuggling in bed with Judah this morning
