Day 233 - Creating the masterpieces. This year, like with everyone else in the world, things are a bit tight chez Schober-Levine. But, we've also got this cute little one living with us, so we decided we'd go the home-made gift route for the nuclear family. We thought it would be nifty to give Ruth some (non-toxic - an important issue, as these photos demonstrate; the J-horror effect of the first image is acheived by a mouthful of blue paint) finger paints and let her go crazy on some heavy-weight paper (and a shower curtain). But, as we wanted her grandparents and great-grandparents to be (pleasantly) surprised, we figured we should embargo these photos for a bit. But, everything is FedExed out now, so we can share them with the world.
We did save one for ourselves.
