Sixteen years ago, Aaron was born on December 21st at 2:00 in the afternoon.
We brought him home on Christmas Eve in a raging snowstorm.
Aaron then Aaron now
Aaron's shoes then Aaron's shoes now (size 14 - wow!)
He was the best gift then and he's the best gift now.
Happy 16th birthday, Aaron.

Last week the maple tree behind our house was a blazing red and gold. In the afternoon the sun would warm the tree and it would pour it's lovely golden-red color into our family room. It was glorious.
This week, it's dark an hour earlier because of the time change. It rained and most the leaves fell off the tree and all the color is on the ground. What a difference a week makes.

The theme for the October Artist Trading Card is "My Cup of Tea".
My artist friends and I create a small card and trade them. Here is my card in progress.
I start by stamping teapots with a rubber stamp and then color them with chalk.
I choose patterned papers and textured ribbons.
Next I start to layer the papers, add the texture and cut out the teapots.
The design starts to come together.
I added more color to the teapot and attached a tea bag to the back with a ribbon.
You're my cup of tea!
