Coloring Fun

I’ve had this roll of brown paper for quite a while and decided it was time to finally use it!  photo 004eresized_zps85b8af5d.jpg

After some tracing we pulled out the markers and had an hour of fun.

Ember spent most of the time working on her purple socks. The girl loves sock and she loves purple!  photo 028eresized_zpsdd3c2351.jpg photo 033eresized_zps6195e283.jpg photo 034eresized_zps117c2310.jpg photo 036eresized_zps6d663696.jpg

The kids spotted their stickers in the art box and decided to use like ten sheets on their pictures. And then when Ember got bored of that she pestered me.  photo 043eresized_zps172cbd61.jpg

After what felt like an eternity watching them and encouraging them and giving attention (you know, typical mom stuff while kids are drawing or crafting!) I went and sat on the floor to read. Ember, hating that mommy was more than a couple feet away from her, brought a stack of books to join in.

And then next thing I know I look up and the kids are coloring leftover birthday balloons and are covered in marker! I swear only like five minutes had gone by and they were like head to toe covered!  photo 052eresized_zps68ec8e80.jpg photo 053eresized_zps1d92ecaf.jpg

I wasn’t happy about the marker but luckily it washed off in the bath. Mostly.  photo 059eresized_zps85ed8023.jpg photo 064eresized_zpsdfd79361.jpg

Since they obviously couldn’t be trusted to treat markers appropriately I made them all come sit by me and color in their coloring books.  photo 073eresized_zps01b77cd9.jpg

I’m still shaking my head at how awful Ember looked. She’s been covered in marker or pen for two weeks now. This phase is oh so fun :S

Here are some iPod pictures of them when they were not covered in marker and still coloring in their tracings.

Things I liked about Payson’s:
-painted nails with Ms and Ls on them for Mario and Luigi, Mario and Princess were together because Payson said they just defeated Bowser
-the star Payson attempted for the first time
-he had a full story for each sticker he added to his poster
-that he added the other colors of yoshi as well

And finally, Ember:
-adding painted nails like her siblings did
-the stickers made a halo around the girl’s head
-the purple socks, just on the toes. lol
