Painting Presents

Hallie worked on some special Christmas presents this afternoon. Before we started her project, we talked about what we were going to be doing (painting ornaments), and while I was getting all her materials together, she kept saying, "I ready! Paint! I ready!" lol. She painted some ornaments today for a several very special people. I can honestly say that Hallie did all the work! I poured the paint for her and rinsed her brushes out occasionally, but she did ALL of the painting! The ornaments turned out really cute--I am very proud of her. She absolutely LOVED painting! I had several clear ornaments, and when she would get finished with each one, she'd say, "All done. More peese." lol. She was so serious while painting, too. It was very cute! When she finished the last one (thankfully she did 5--the number she needed to), she put the paint brush down and said, "I'm done." Silly girl! There is a video of Hallie painting at the bottom...I couldn't believe that she was concentrating so hard on what she was doing--I thought it was just too sweet!

Hallie is saying, "I ready!" in this picture!

Sweet little pumpkin head!

Such detail! Such precision! ;o)

There is no way my kids would sit there and paint like that. Don't get me wrong, they love to paint, it just gets everywhere...we have to cover them and all surfaces around them with drop clothes! I am so impressed she can paint without a smock! Great job, hallie.
