Crayola to the rescue!

We were countersinking the nails in our new wood shoe molding when we realized our can of filler was too white for the stain. The hardware store sells a product designed to disguise such spots--essentially, grease pencils tinted to various browns--for $5 apiece. My husband spotted the bag of crayons on the kitchen table. Aha! With a little help from our expert scribbler, he quickly rubbed a couple of shades on each spot. Before I knew it, they had the perfect blend of Honey Pine without a trip to the store!

That Andrew is just precious. And I love the pic of Elise howling, though it probably wasn't much fun to endure. It will be great for a laugh when she's older!

I bet that made your son feel great as well, that he could help his dad.
