25 days of christmas: day 20

for day 20 of our advent countdown
we painted family ornaments!

i ordered these unpainted wooden ornaments from goose grease
one dad, one mom and two little girls

after we finished dinner we spread out some newspapers on our dining table
and painted a little mini replica of ourselves
(or attempted to!)

this is mine, i was kind of nervous doing it because i don't paint!
can you tell i really wanted to capture my side swoosh bangs? haha!

here is our little ornament family all finished
pia was a little over zealous with her painting and accidentally
painted over her eyes
she was really sad and even cried about it
but i told her it was perfect just the way it was

i think this has been my favorite activity so far
because one day i will be an old lady and unpack my christmas ornaments
and bring these lovely ones out and remember
how much fun we all had painting them

I just LOVE LOVE all these family activities you have for the girls. Years from now your are going to smile looking through this. I definitely would want to drive something like this later when K is a bit older.

They are perfect and I love how you all did this together. :)
