PUMPKINS, no Carving...

Well, the granddaughters wanted to try their hand at painting pumpkins.
So off to Walmart we go.
Got some acrylic paints, brushes, and some small pumpkins.

Little Bit decided to paint her pumpkins blue and pink.
This just happens to be her's and her sister's favorite colors.

Doodles decided that one pumpkin would be white,
but hadn't made up her mind what color to do for the other.

Little Bit has a pretty good start on hers. The Pink and the Blue
are really pretty colors.

The project is coming along really nice. It just takes time...

Doodles dolls are standing close by to watch the progress.

Little Bit is helping her pumpkins to dry.
Will this project EVER get done?

Actually, you wouldn't have to paint the bottoms since
you don't really see that part when you set them around.
But we were having fun and decided to paint the whole thing.

Can you believe it! They are done!!
Don't you just love Little Bit's one-eyed pumpkins!

The girls had some pink beads and little flowers, so I
decided I'd super glue some on this pumpkin.

Doodles decided that her other pumpkin would be Rainbow colors.

Doodles said that she didn't want to paint the stem for THAT
was the best part of the pumpkin.  Well, I think the colors are AWESOME!

Each pumpkin gets a special place in the house.

That was so much fun! The best part was just being
with my granddaughters and listening to them talk
about school and their friends; Listening to them laugh;
Being excited about their pumpkins...

Yea, I'm blessed indeed.
