anna was napping when I decided to start the pinecone painting. You can see me holding the camera remote in one of the pics. I'm still glad I got in some with jake. When anna woke up, I had to abandon the idea of getting in the pics. Its hard to handle two kids, paint and try to get in the picture at the same time. I wanted to paint the pinecones white and put them into clear vases for a bit of decoration. jake wanted "all the colors, mommy." Of course you do.
