We had a wonderful vacation. Granit vacations are much much different when you have a one year old. We didn't do much of anything. In fact many days we didn't even leave the house. But we were exhausted. Belle wore us out.
I tried getting pictures of Belle for our Christmas card. Two days worth of pictures and I got about 3 I can use. The rest are of her crying. And, they aren't even what I wanted. But it works.
Belle made Christmas gifts for her teachers at school. I picked up ornaments for her to finger paint. She did pretty well. I bought green and red paint. We did the green paint one day and the next the red. Then I painted their names on them with the year. My painting not so well last night but it works.
The the next day I was already with paper towels in case she tried it again. She never stuck her hands in her mouth, but she did rub her face. Red paint all over. Every time I tried to clean it up she did it again. I cleaned her hands first and when I was moving on to her face she would rub it again and get paint on her hands again. It felt like and endless cycle. She made more of a mess with the red paint then the green paint.
The ornaments came out nicely though. I hope that they will like them.
Back to the grind today and I promise to get back into blogging and visiting this week.
