Brayden recently started going to a Mother's Morning Out program at our church two mornings a week. He usually brings home some kind of craft that he made each day. That got me thinking of trying to do some arts & crafts activity at home, so today we tried "finger painting". I found a recipe online for homemade finger paint using flour, water & food coloring. After getting everything ready, I let him go to it. He enjoyed it all of about two minutes before he was ready to move onto something else!! Oh well...he did make quite a mess in those two minutes, getting the "paint" on his clothes, my clothes, the chair and in his hair. He also sampled a little paint, so it was on his face & mouth as well. Here are a few pictures of him in action and the final masterpiece!

It snowed this past Friday & Saturday in Smithfield...we actually got about 4 inches! So on Saturday we spent the morning playing outside. Greg, Brayden and I went to play with Madeline, Lydia, and Margo at their house. Aunt Catherine and Caroline even drove up from Wilmington to come play too. Brayden was so bundled up that he could barely move! But he seemed to enjoy it a little more than he did when we were in upstate NY at the beginning of January. He tossed the snow around in his hands and Greg pulled him on the sled for a little while with Margo, Madeline & Lydia. Other than that he mostly just watched everyone else and took it all in. After an hour we were all so cold that we had had enough and decided to go home to the heat. Here are a few pictures of our day.
And this is a picture from last January when we had snow....he's changed so much!!
