#funfriday / daddy takes the girls on an afternoon of painting and I’m celebrating Christmas at the cabin

the daily Starr fun friday

I’m in the mountains on this #funfriday with my mom, Aunt Debra and 12 other friends at a cabin. Can I tell you how much I love these people????

Yes, we’re crazy. We have a Christmas “Elf” theme for our weekend. Just laugh. You know you want to.

If you know me and my love for Christmas, you know I’m enjoying this weekend more than I could possibly express.

I even rode a horse today.

Meanwhile, back at home – Brian surprised the girls by taking them to a painting studio to pick up these pieces we painted with friends a few weeks ago.

This was just the MOST fun, y’all! The place is called Dish It Out in Stonecrest, next to the movie theater.  This is a do-it-yourself paint studio.

We met some friends one Saturday and each picked out a piece to paint. You pay for the price of the piece and then an hourly studio fee. You can use as many paints and brushes as you like and take as long as you want.

Here is what all our pieces looked like before we left them to bake in the cooker (I can’t remember what it’s called).

I was so excited to see how they turned out!

I hope your weekend is full of smiles and laughter and intentional time with the ones you love.

And if anything, you’ll smile at this, “Santa’s STARR Elf”:
