Face painter extraordinaire!

We have a myriad of unique and interesting professions in my family.

I have a brother-in-law who is a Funeral Director, a brother who is a Border Patrol Agent and paramedic, another brother who is the Assistant Superintendant at a golf course which includes some exciting things like picking off pesky rabbits with rocks, and mowing lawns :). I also have yet another brother who has become a Farrier or horseshoeing expert (that is some SERIOUS business by the way. more on that another day). 

There is also my talented aunt Denise.  She is naturally very creative and artistic, but has recently taken up the art of face painting.  We aren't talking a rainbow on your cheek at the elementary school carnival, either.  It takes some real skill to do what she does. 

Over the 4th of July, we got together and let her paint the kids' faces.  Bianca was in HEAVEN.  I have never seen a more giddy girl...sparkles, jewels, and pink.  There aren't many more important things in a 3 year old diva's life, right?!?

Bianca held so still, but she could hardly stand the wait to see herself in mirror.

She smiled and posed in the mirror all night long.

 You better believe we jumped at the chance for painting the next day at brunch. 

Once again, the mirror was essential.  I even saw her sneak a few kisses into the mirror. no joke.

This girl KNOWS she's a knockout.

Jack joined the fun too, but he needed something manly like Spiderman, complete with jewel in the center...because every spider looks more tough with a diamond middle, no?

Let's be honest people, if the kids are doing something cool, I am most likely going to be in on the action.  I'm still a child, didn't you know that?

Lookin' good.

Thanks Denise, for your fabulous work...we can't wait to get painted up again!

I am very impressed. Jack looks so tough with that snake on his arm too. I can only imagine how giddy that little diva of yours was too. Just too much fun!

Work it, girl, work it!! Both of ya! Wow, quite an interesting family you have there. But a face painter? Awesome!! Can't wait until the day my kiddos sit still enough for that!

Denise said...

Please come this Thursday to the Promenade! I want to paint the kids again. I have a sparkly pink in mind for Bianca that we just got in. Maybe I can make Jack a white tiger this time.

So fun for the kiddos! I bet they loved it!

Our ward had a carnival for an activity one night and there was a face painter there, I wanted to get my face painted but for some reason, I was told that the kids needed a turn rude!
