My funny boy

I really wanted to get some scrappin' done and Kim over at To the Starres and Back blog has some great challenges. Today is the deadline to do a lo with b/w pics, stamped title, arrows, frame, and journaling block. Did I get it all? I just adore this picture of Aaron. He truly can be the life of the party. He has great comedic timing and manages to make us smile or laugh at almost every meal. Can you say future class clown? This is, of course, my husband who never misses the opportunity to tease his children. Picture taken February 2008. He's grown so much already.
Today the children had a lesson on the 10 lepers at church and being thankful. Synopsis: Jesus healed 10 lepers and only one returned to thank him.
So when we got home I asked the kiddos what they remembered about the lesson. I asked Tessa what a leper was and she proceeded to explain to me that it's a guy who has a stick and he watches sheep and they stay close to him. Apparently lepers are synonomous with sheperds (a lesson she had two weeks ago on the scripture that talks about the sheperd leaving the 99 and going to look for the one must have made a big impression on her). Jakob set her straight in no time and told her in no uncertain terms that a leper is someone whose skin is falling off their body. Ahhh...boys.
Arrows are my own design, colored in with Zigs and washed out with a blender pen. Art Warehouse Stamp for "A" and Technique Tuesday stamp for "funny". Chipboard circles are from Stampin' Up chip pack. Paper is Scenic Route. Letters: Heidi Swapp. Tag was distressed with inks and lines were drawn on it for journaling. PS I'm waiting to erase my pencil lines to make sure the ink is dry.

This page is Fabulous! WOW! Aaron sounds a lot like Colin. He is going to always be the class clown in my family, although Evan is catching up quickly in that department.
