That last sunny day

I was far too busy the last really nice warm sunny days of fall to blog about them, so I am now.

On November 3rd it was sunny and 70 plus out. Yes, November 3rd here in Salem… OREGON, it was 70 plus. It was sunny, and IT WAS NOT RAINING. Crazy really. I have a bunch of what to do with your toddler type of activity books and one of them suggested painting their feet and having them walk around on paper.

I tired to paint them for her, but I got her cute little, “no” and she took over. I must get this no on video, it’s her second type of no, the first one she only used for a week and it went like this, “noooooooooo-ohhhhh” almost like a question.

Sciarrino snagged these big pieces of paper for us (a mis-print on the other side) and I thought they would be perfect for custom toddler wrapping paper.

Who wouldn’t love to get something wrapped up in this loveliness?

I was reminded of this day today while trashing our dining room with paint, apple halves, crayons and leaves. How much I wish I could let the rain clean that up too!

  1. So cute!! Miri’s daycare just sent us home little ghosts that they made using her footprints. They did white paint on black and then added googly eyes and a smile. It was very cute!!

  2. I’m so sorry little Tutu got a UTI, that is NO FUN at all. Have experienced that loveliness myself once, ouch.
    I love these pictures of her little toes! Oh baby and toddler toes are soooo adorable!
    My sister is coming to town with her baby for my mom’s wedding Thanksgiving weekend. I am sooooo looking forward to spending some serious baby toe and tummy time!

  3. I didn’t even think to do it myself (I was busy peeling onions to put up), but I think it would be fun. Though it took multiple baths to get the paint off her feet. 🙂 I would dig a present wrapped with paper like this if you try it!
