Pumpkin Painting

I know I'm behind, again. I'm going to try to get caught up on the Halloween & hunting stuff this weekend... since I have a 5-DAY WEEKEND!!! (Insert Happy-Dance here.)

A couple days after the pumpkin patch, we painted the pumpkins the boys had picked out. It's a great way for even the smallest of kids to decorate their own pumpkins, since they are so often left out of the whole carving thing.
Ty set to work on his like Da Vinci on the Sistine Chapel.
While Riley preferred a less structured approach.

At one point their Daddy got involved, chasing the boys around the kitchen with his own paint brush.
Ty's pumpkin actually got several layers of paint, which required drying time in between. He worked on his for several days. This was only the first layer.
There was much helping and sharing. We are blessed to have 2 boys who get along really well (so far, anyway...)
The end results were spectacular!

The works of pumpkin-art:
... that are actually going to be cleaned, baked & pureed this weekend for future use in pies, muffins & chili.

Absolutely adorable!

Ty looks so serious painting his, and I love the pic of Riley being chased by the paintbrush. I can just imagine him giggling with glee. Your boys are so precious.

Thanks for sharing!
