Though I'm not doing the "Summer Diary" series this year, I am taking every advantage of breaks between packing & moving to come up with something fun to do with the girls. Today I let my girls go wild with my makeup. More specifically, we gave each other makeovers. The picture at the top is "Before" & "After" the 10 year old attacked my face. As she was applying the makeup, Zoey asked me, "Mom? Do you think zombies are pretty?"
Then, to keep the fun going, I decided to draw faces on some plain white paper with a permanent black artist marker. A sharpie will work just as well too. As I sketched, the girls had many requests:
"Give mine freckles!"
"Can that one have a double chin?"
"Zig-zag hair, please."
The girls spent a couple hours playing the part of makeup artist.
And they made a fine fun mess!
