Christmas crafting part 1 | wrap painting

Sneak peak for those receiving boxed wrapped gifts from us this year! I wanted LL to have a special part in gift wrapping this time around, and after doing some thinking I thought it’d be fun for all parties if LL could PAINT our wrapping paper! So we ventured to Lowes and purchased some red rosin paper and let the fun begin!

We finally got around to taking advantage of the 60° weather in December and had ourselves a little photo shoot out back. I had high hopes of making it to the park, but the sun was fading fast and thankfully theres a wood pile in our back yard, which suited just fine!

We were having lots of fun, even though her hands got dirty, or as she likes to say, ‘dotey’.

Even though it was warm enough for Linners to enjoy the great outdoors, it was a bit too cold for brother to show his face with the cool breeze, so we opted for the chase and flirted inside instead. happy boy
