I should probably just make my Mondays “Happy Fall Mondays” or “Hey! Remember that it is Fall! I am Cassi and it is my favorite season – Mondays.”
This year, Adelynn was old enough to make Fall
refrigerator art. I got an idea off of Pinterest (that links to my page, follow me if you like!) It was actually an idea for an alternative wedding guest book. I thought it would work pretty well for a toddler!
This was the first time she used paint. She doesn’t really like getting dirty, so I had keep her interested in how pretty her picture was turning out – so she would forget.
Eventually we got through 18 of these, all made for family. I have to say, I got pretty good about being uplifting and changing out blank trees. I can only imagine how funny I looked and sounded. I remember how I felt, I would barely get her started on one, then I would trade it out for another and then have to find room to lay the one we just finished.
“Ooh, Adelynn! Look how pretty that red is!”
“Oh here, let’s put that brown on this tree.”
“Look what a nice job you did with that yellow!”
“Oh honey, we have to paint on the paper.”
“That tree looks like it has plenty of leaves, you can put leaves on this one now.”
“You really like that brown/red combination, don’t you?”
It was a tiny table, full of fall-leaved trees.
It was a tiny table, overflowing with breathtaking autumn beauty.
Happy Fall (again)!!
