Just a regular ol day. Hanging out in the art room. If you haven't noticed... we do that a lot.
And finally, I got Ellie Sue's new Hello Kitty sewing machine down and running for her to practice making lines with.
I got some plain cardstock and drew straight lines first, and as she mastered those, I added some simple curves.
I was quite shocked as Miss Thang followed those lines. Check out that little foot operating that foot pedal! how CUTE is that?!!??
She would get a little worried when her sewn lines weren't perfect.
In the meanwhile, baby number two was busy painting away. So much so that I forgot she still had on her cute dress from earlier in the day.
Gabs will just layer and layer and layer and layer levels of paint. That's her style. I think, perhaps, Ellie Sue now has control of the camera. Just sayin'!
We spend many an hour in this room. As much as it adds grey hair to my head, I know that someday I am gonna wish they were right in there with me, when they want to go out with their friends or drive away back to campus to leave me and dad home again alone. Soooo, for today, I am gonna LOVE it. Love their sense of wonder at the color on top of color that they slap on those canvases.
And all those precious little stitches Ellie makes on my makeshift patterns of cardstock!
Love my baby girls. MO
