Painting Pumpkins, Pine-cones, and Pebbles

We skipped the carving pumpkin's so far and decided to paint Selah's Pumpkin.  She loves to paint so much so after we were finished with the pumpkin she went on to pine-cones and then pebbles. 







 Tongue shot!  :)

She does look really into it! We let R paint a pumpkin every year instead of carving.. thus far. We haven't painted his yet, but I look forward to it. I love how she went on to paint anything she could! Too cute! Thanks for sharing.

I'd also like to invite you to check out one of my posts. If she loves painting, I think she'll get a kick out of this. I call it "Chuckin Pumpkin Painting." R had a lot of fun with it today. Here's the link...

She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
