Christmas Ornament

Now that I'm getting ready to start Bella's Christmas ornament for 2015 I realized I never posted a picture of 2014's.  I think Elsa & Anna from Frozen is her favorite so far!

Bella's New Chair

My brother made Bella a chair out of 2 wooden spools this spring and we have finally gotten it painted.  Bella's request was pink and purple stripes and she had to help paint!!!

our blank slate

Saturday - painting the pink stripes

finally done with them

Sunday - painting the purple stripes

She is one very happy little girl!

Have you ever painted with an almost 5 year old???????????? She would paint a little while and then go catch butterflies and then come back and paint some more and then go play with the cat!   LOL
