Our Sunday - the Chalk Edition

Sometimes I like to buy things just to see how the boys will interact with it.  Today's find was a box of 15 large pieces of chalk for 99 cents.  How could I pass it up?

Here are the boys doing a "What's this?"  I took this picture about two seconds before Monty took off with the box of chalk.  You can see him starting to steal it here.
What's dis stuff?
 After chasing the boy through the yard, we got back down to work.  First off, the boys got to choose their colors. 
Blue for me, Mom!  Could I have orange?


....and we got to work!
I'm not in the way, am I?
Due to the day being bright and sunny, we kept losing Monty to his sunbeams.  Sam didn't mind helping all the way through.  Finally, it was time to get both boys to pose.
Mama's little helper...
You can tell Monty wasn't ready to give up on the reflections yet... 
I love these boys!
We hope you all have a great week!

  3. We second and third Daisy's thoughts! Sam - and Monty? You have a furry creative Mommy who actively engages your best doggeh minds in furry cool stuff! (It doesn't hurt that she is a great artist either!)

  5. Fun! At least Sam was loyal and helped you...no wonder it's him trying to get a job and not Monty... :)

  7. That is too good! A great way to spend to some nice time together with them. I think Charley would be trying to eat it, and Finn would be obsessed with my drawing her nose would be to the piece of chalk like glue!

  21. Lots of kids write on the sidewalks with chalk around here. I'd admire their artwork a lot longer if everyone included a Sam and Monty in their designs. :)
