Painting Pumpkins With My Pumpkins

I have felt pretty awful the past few days and I feel like I have done n0thing but lay in bed...I hate feeling this way! I'm not sure if it is just allergies/sinus issues or the flu... Either way this evening I pulled myself out of bed and decided Devin and Corbin needed some mommy time. When we went to the pumpkin patch last week we picked up two mini pumpkins for the boys to paint.

They have just been sitting in this bowl on the kitchen table....so...beofre I start any craft I have to wrangle up little Westin to make sure he is nice and busy so we don't have to stop and start our project...
Isn't he just adorable!?!?!!!!!!

I put down wax paper over their work areas and used painters tape to affix it to the table.

We put on our "paint shirts" aka under shirts daddy had bought for Devin in the wrrroooong size. ; )

Devin picked his colors: brown, yellow and his favorite color blue

Corbin picked his: green, black and white

Corbin took this project SUPER seriously! He didn't talk the entire time.

Devin wanted to paint a rainbow but DID NOT want any assistance from mom...I guess the "mom, you are cramping my style" is already starting... : (
a close up of Devin's so far...

and here is Corbin's...

I told you he was taking this seriously.

he was concentrating on his "technique"

Devin explained e-v-e-r-y step

"uh...what the heck happened to Corbin's face", you may ask...I have no idea! I swear I didn't leave his side! I don't have a clue how it got all over him. This is when we packed it up and headed to the bath tub!

Here is Devin's finish pumpkin

And here is Corbin's finished pumpkin

This took e-v-e-r-y s-i-n-g-l-e o-u-n-c-e of energy I had but was well worth it. I love spending time with my boys. The simple moments are the moments we cherish!
