Whiling away painting on a summer afternoon...

Yesterday afternoon the big kids in the house were out at the beach and my little one and I had some time alone together... We pulled out the watercolors...
the buttons...

And sat and painted for a few hours, creating mosaics like these. We talked and painted, ate snacks...And then she asked, "Mom, do you think the elves and Santa are busy right now doing things like this in the North Pole?"

"Of course!" :0)

She's hoping they are busy 'cause she knows time is flying by and Christmas will be here soon!

How fun, a little girl, painting and a snack too, I'll be right over. She sounds so cute, and that's the best part about being with young children they think about the important stuff. Karen

That was such a sweet afternoon to spend together, Tara.

I felt so sad when my children grew too old to believe in Santa Claus -- now that is so many years ago...lol!

Hugs, Pat

Oh Tara,
Don't you just love when little ones come up with questions like that? I hate to say it, but this 46 year old STILL believes in Santa and his elves. He couldn't do it by himself ya know!

Tara, this is so sweet. I like this post, it's a reminder for me to spend those important moments with the children, which I am lacking nowadays. Well, school holidays up next week, so I hope to do something fun with them, I think they need a break from me nagging @ them to do homework blah blah blah..same thing everyday, I could;ve recorded them hahaha. I need the break too :D have a great weekend and hugs too :D
