Sunday Mom and Dad went to Lowe's to get holiday lights. They saw a display with bricks painted as snowmen and bought a brick to bring home to show me. Dad wanted to buy a bunch right away for me to paint for the yard, but Mom said to just get one because sometimes I shoot down her project ideas as silly. I did not shoot it down this time, but I did immediately decide the brick should be painted as a penguin and not a snowman.
After going back to Lowe's for paint and 11 more bricks, I got home and told Mik I was making a penguin army. I finished one that day and placed it outside by the sidewalk.
Yesterday, I painted more of the bricks and also came up with the idea of painting one of them to have his belly look like the number 1. Then when placed next to two with their regular bellies looking like zeros we have our house number. In putting the three for that with Dad, I dropped one and Mik was sad he did not get it on video because I "killed" a penguin.
Today I finished painting the rest of the bricks and fixed the injured penguin, so we now have a dozen penguins in our yard as part of our holiday decor. Now to get the inflatable ones out of the attic, which are involved in my scheme to earn us another warning letter from the HOA.
