So was Daddy, while Charlie "supervised".
Once Graham colored both plates, it was time for the hand stamp:
Thankfully, Graham was very cooperative:
He truly enjoyed himself!
After the hand prints, it was now time to get Charlie's foot prints:
Thankfully Charlie didn't complain too much either. I suppose he can't really say much at this point :-)
Once the prints were done, it was Mommy's turn to paint. As Graham and Daddy went to get some ice-cream, Mommy somehow was able to paint and finish up the plates with one hand while trying to hold and keep Charlie from crying/being cranky in the other arm. It wasn't easy but phew - we got it done!
Here's one plate for Grandma (Graham actually took the next 2 pictures)...
... and one plate for Pop-pop!
We left it at the store for it to be glazed and picked it up in 3 days. And when we got it back, it looked awesome! I was so excited to have it mailed to Grandma and Pop-pop (and so glad they arrived in one piece and on time for Christmas!).
Graham has been quite the artist lately with all the other projects at school for Christmas:
And oh, Mommy got her new mug/gift from Daddy too...
... with a little surprise on the inside.
It makes all my drinks taste a little better. True story! ;-)
