The Rocket Ship Room Paintings

 A sweet friend from our Seattle days asked to see a closer up of the paintings on the wall in the boys' room.
A painter I most definitely am not but it was fun.  Not too shabby for painting with the boys tempura paints and plastic bristled brushes.  Harder than I thought it would be but I think we all know that seems to be a theme with me.
 Carver likes this one because of the 3 and as we know he is aaaaaaaaaaaalmost 3!  The other day I heard him talking to a kid in the gym's kids club.  The other kid asked him how old he was and Carver answered, "I'm two but I'm almost three."  The kid responded, "that's not a very high number you know" and Carver didn't miss a beat and just said, "I know, that's why I said I'm only 2 now but I'm ALMOST 3.  Okay?" with a little sass.  I guess I don't have to worry about him being too sensitive and standing up for himself right?
 This one is my favorite.  I think I just love red.
And this one I think I should hang the other way.  Flip it 180  maybe?  I don't know. 
And a quick shot of my two boys who I do it all for.  When I was doing the painting in the garage, Carver was riding his bike around and Asher was in the excersaucer doing his thing.  Carver would "drive by" and inspect my work now and then and always want to know, "which one is for me and which one is for Ashie?"  He likes to cuddle in bed at night and tell me about his and Ashie's paintings that mama did for them.

And that's what its all about right?
