This is what it looks like at our house today:
It’s snowing! Hopefully we’ll be able to get out and play in it once it accumulates a little more. They’re not calling for much but we should get a couple of inches which will be enough to satisfy the boys’ desire to get out and make some snowballs.
I wanted to show you what the boys have been doing here lately besides the usual video games and computer stuff. The other night my sister and I went to Bed Bath and Beyond and while we were there I spotted some art sets that had canvas, paint, and brushes for $2.50. In the package you got 2 canvases with pre-printed pictures, 6 brushes, and 12 tubes of acrylic paint. I couldn’t believe how cheap they were so I bought Iain and Ryan each a set. They loved it and couldn’t wait to get started!
They both had the same set and they chose to work on the same picture of dinosaurs. It was interesting to see how differently each of them interpreted how the picture should look.
Ryan is very fastidious and likes to take his time and try and get everything “just right” as he sees it. Iain’s is much more textured and abstract. I love them both!
Today we had one of Ryan’s friends over to play and Sean and Iain went out to run some errands. I have some chores to do but I just don’t feel like it. I just want to snuggle up on the sofa and watch the snow fall. What are you doing today?
