A day full of chalk

Today Ben wanted to color outside... first he "outlined" me (it turns out I look like a big blob) and then I outlined him..
Then he wanted me to color some pumpkins.. He asked for a green one -- and when I started to draw this one.. he said "Oh, I guess you're drawing an egg." Sheeesh - such a critic... But he was VERY excited when he wanted a WHITE Bat.. and the WHITE showed up -- it doesn't on most paper you know.. and WHITE is Ben's FAVORITE color (of the month).
Such a serious face for a little guy
and then the cheeser

Lately, everything to Ben happened "Yesterday"... He saw Aunt Laura, YESTERDAY; He skied YESTERDAY; He was a Dragon for Halloween YESTERDAY.
If only it were true, yesterday would've been ONE GREAT DAY!

Ben and Jake



Jacob was happy pushing around the basket by himself, but somehow, someone convinced him to climb in and Ben pushed him around the house... Jake was NOT happy..


Who is this kid? When did he start looking so old.. and big... ??
