happy birthday to yooooou
March is also the time of year that I like to rag on David for being SOOOO much older than me. 'Cause I'm a super sweet wifey.
This year, we celebrated Birthday Month surrounded by boxes in our new house. By the way - have I mentioned that we have a NEW house????? Have I???? Because we do. Oh we do.
Anyway - Partly to escape Box Land for a bit, and partly to do something different and fun, I took Avery and Charlie to a pottery painting studio to make David's birthday gift.
I totally loved watching my little guys at work...
My precocious and not-so-shockingly perfectionistic Avery took her time, chose her colors thoughtfully, and carefully painted each ring on her plate slowly and methodically.
That's my girl.
Charlie painted for approximately 2.5 seconds with several random colors using several random brushes at once, before deciding that pulling pottery pieces from the wall and playing in the dirty paint water was way more fun.
That's my boy.
I have to say, I think they turned out just perfect.
Life is pretty awesome.
