A Messy Painter and a Clean Painter

While my Mom was here, we decided to paint John and Gus's room.  John remembers Grandma painting his room in Denver and insisted she help paint his new room too. The room is fantastic.  I'm happy, the boys are happy and my mom is happy.  All of this is just a teaser since I'm not actually going to show you pictures of their room yet.  You'll have to wait.  The boys didn't actually help paint the room, but they did get to paint a wooden letter of their first initial.  We brought the boys with us when we purchased the letters and Gus was not happy with the 'A' for August.  "My name Gus" he insisted.  So we got a 'G'.

The boys were able to use some of the same colors we used in their room to paint their letter.  To my surprise, John took his time and painted without making a big mess.  Gus, being two and all, slopped on all of the colors to make an interesting brown.  He finished the letter early on and began painting himself.
