Here are some fun creative projects that we have done over the years. From neat pumpkin carving to snow sculptures and of course my favorite is painting my boys faces.  Hopeful my kids will take the creativity of their youth with them into adulthood.

Snow Snoopy

Carving the Snoopy Snowman in 2015 was a blast.  We kept getting slammed with snowstorms and it just kept building up ultimately leaving us with the perfect snow for packing!  You can see our big snow head in the background as well.   A friend of ours sent the picture into the local news and it ended up getting a minute on channel 3.

Mini Joker and Mini Two Face

One of my favorite paint session with the boys.  I had been begging my youngest to let me paint him up like the Joker, I mean look at him, he has the perfect hair for it.  Eventually Connecticon in Hartford, CT came around and they were down with letting me have my way!  My other boy ended up being an awesome Two Face and the two had a blast giving their signature pose!

Werewolf Make up and Reaper Make up

Two of my favorite Halloweens were these.  The boys rocked there costumes so well.  It was crazy to see them.  Werewolf and Reaper killed it that year.

Pumpkin Carving

Always love to get our hands on pumpkins every Halloween.  I definitely started the tradition but the kids have gotten into it just as much as I have and are coming up with their own sick design.  Love it.

Lego Portrait

Finding the lego app on the iphone quickly became a welcomed challenge and also a hair pulling event.  After I completed two of these my mother actually turned them into a cross stitch which when completed was quickly framed and hung on our wall.

Team T at Ashley’s Ice Cream

For years we have been going to Ashley’s ice cream in Madison, CT.  One of the cool things other than their ice cream is they have a wall of drawings created by the guest who eat their.  When my youngest was well uh younger he used to call us “Team T” and we ended up doing our first drawing and signing it this way.  This ended up becoming our ongoing signature and as time went on our drawing became more elaborate.  From Mike from Monsters inc, Iron Man, How to Train your Dragon, Calvin and Hobbes, Fat Man, The Invincibles, Zombies vs Plants, the Shark from Finding Nemo and more we have had a great time over the years adding to the wall.
