Finger Paint and Belly Buttons don't go together!

For Jack's birthday he got finger paints from Nama/Papa. So, this morning he and Ally had an artsy morning. They first started out playing with the Modeling clay that he got and then decided to switch to painting. Normally I am not a big fan of this stuff, but I told myself to let go and let them be. :)

I should have listened to myself. HA They were painting on paper for Valentine's for family and teachers. Then decided to take it to another level and do hand prints on themselves. Of course I did not get the worst of it in my pictures, but Ally had royal blue paint in her belly button. Yep, that's right. So, then because she did it Jack decided to put some of the BROWN paint in his. So, his belly button looks like it is dirty and we don't wash him. Whereas Ally's looks blue. Beautiful!

But, boy did they have a ball doing it and that is what matters! Ally had never finger painted or painted period prior to today. Could you imagine with how crazy she is how that would end up. Well, now I know. It is a good thing I took all of her clothes off and had her in a diaper only. Jack took his shirt of so he wouldn't get dirty before school.

So, thanks Mom for that great gift! I am sure it will bring hours of happiness to the kids! And then quite a mess for me to clean up. But, I am letting that go. Let the kids be kids is what is most important!!! And as you can see from this pic of Ally she was quite happy getting to be so carefree!!
