Table gone painty!

For painting this week, I sealed our table...a result of many hours of paint play! 

 Baby did the handprints all on her own.  I was doing something, and suddenly I hear, in a loud proud tone, HANDPRINTS!
 There are some cool patterns deep beneath lots of baby blobs.  I used paper towels to mop up the mess, and voila...paper towel prints!



All of us girls had too much fun with with window crayons.  It totally covers little finger prints!
 see...we got snow!

and because I love whipping out my fisheye/wide angle adapter!

Have a joyous weekend!
I am going to hang at home, and try to get over a monster cold.
 I'll probably pet a bunch of cats, much to my dismay.  I'll cuddle with my dog lots, and talk to our bird.
 I probably won't eat a lollipop, but you never know...

and btw, this is our eating table too!  fun!
