we had a wonderful day with jenna and ben yesterday! jenna loves my art room and spent a good deal of time playing with paints. although she is becoming resistant to grandma's non-stop photo taking she did play along with the above shot. her mom was less than happy to see the paint coated into jenna's nails and cuticles but we had fun and that is what matters!!
ben enjoyed chasing shadows in my art room and sitting under my art desk. what an adorable little chubbykins he is!!
bill and i played tag team. he watched ben while jenna and i saved pumpkin seeds for planting next year. above are actually green gooseneck squash seeds. we saved 6 different kinds of pumpkin and squash seeds and will make decorative envelopes next time she's her and then give them out at the holidays. i think she will enjoy planting them in uncle matt's garden next year and then watching them grow. matt, you've been forwarned that jenna has plans for some of your garden space!!
while i took a nap with ben (the only way i could get him to stay asleep) bill and jenna flew a kite. she thought it was wonderful fun. eventually both bill and jenna joined ben and i in our king size bed for a nap. how i would love to have a photo of the 4 of us all snuggled up together asleep!!
today is for recharging the batteries and getting some fresh air!
