future picasso

so, i was a tad vague in sunday's post about our playdate. our playdate consisted of making presents for a few upcoming dates that we needed presents for! today was that day. today is rett's bday (it's also reynold's dad's bday so they made presents too; emery just wanted the footprints for herself!) and olivia needed to get him a present. in lieu of spending too much on something he probably wouldn't appreciate a friend gave me the idea to have olivia paint something. PERFECT! so that's what we did!
from left to right - o's work, reynolds' in the middle and hudson's on the right
i think she had fun doing it; i did! it was MESSY so the baby pool was necesary to clean up the aftermath. and that's why the kiddos weren't wearing clothes! no need in ruining a good outfit! just an fyi - both hudson and reynolds ate some paint so it's apparently non-toxic as they are just fine!

and here she is presenting the gift to him. i hope he appreciated it. something like that would mean more to me and anything olivia (rett) could buy me.
my plan was to give the other to my parents for grandparents day coming up next month. but... sorry mom and dad. i decided i wanted her first masterpiece! we'll come up with something just as great to get you! :)

i do think her "original" piece would be super cute framed in my bedroom!


  1. What a great idea! I think you've just inspired me as well...

  2. Um.... Wasn't I "the friend" who gave you the idea in my little cube at work?! not that it matters........ :-)

  3. What a great idea. We are definitely going to give this a try.

  4. to em - at least i didn't claim it as my own idea! :)
