Mad Scientist = Artist

You know these dolls? They're called Matroyshka or Babushka Nesting Dolls. They were also featured as the hero-citizens of one Higglytown, which hubby and I found creepy, but the kids loved at the time. A few weeks ago, I got hubby some blank nesting dolls for him to paint himself. Since they usually come in fives, he painted each to represent each of us, in a monster-creature sort of way.

From left to right: Lizzy said she wanted "pink and bats". Mission accomplished. Leanna wasn't here when her dad started painting, but her favorite color is green and she's our Wild Animal SME, so he did a tiger in the forest. Abby couldn't decide whether she wanted hers to represent Raven from Teen Titans or a vampire, so he he made hers... both.
Mine is the Mummy! Get it? The Mummy? Hee hee. Or... ahem... Mwah ha ha ha haaaaaaaaa!

Yes. I am a word geek and puns are even more fun. Blame my dad, the Punmeister Extraordinaire.
And hubby's of course. The Mad Scientist. Don't believe me? Check his blog here.
