We've got the whole afternoon ahead of us...
(and tonight and all day tomorrow)
and nothing to do.

I knew today was the day.
The day to break out the "special markers" my mom bought for the kids (without their knowledge) which she instructed me to save for a day like today.
Aren't moms/grandmas the best?

You should have seen the kids faces when I told them they could color on the glass door.

And then they got busy creating this work of art.

And posing of course.

And I had some fun editing my pictures.

I've never done it before.
In my life.

Never used photoshop.
Still haven't.

I just clicked a few buttons in i-photo.

So glad the kids had fun with the markers. Thanks for the pictures! It's the next best thing to being there - we sure appreciate your blogging! What would we do without it?!

I was just going to say the second to last picture of Noah is PERFECT! A little editing can be fun huh?!

Love coloring on the window, my kiddos use dry erase and go to town. I let the girls color on the bathroom window while I do their hair...maybe Alex would then let you do her hair...!!!

Those markers are awesome! Yay for grandmas. I love the picture of Noah looking through the window. He's so adorable.
