Caleb's GT Literature Pumpkin Project

We spent about 4 hours on this pumpkin last night! Caleb's assignment was to pick one of his favorite storybook characters to decorate (NOT carve) a pumpkin with. He chose Aslan, the LION, from "The Chronicles of Narnia". After looking at online images for over an hour, Caleb finally found the perfect lion. It took nearly two hours to cut out every interior detail of the stencil. Drew finally took it outside to spray-paint over the stencil... we are very happy with the final product! Drew also helped carry it in the school this morning to Caleb's classroom. He said there were a lot of 'ooohs and aaaahs' through the hallways! :)

Caleb is 10 years old!!!

I cannot believe our CaLeB AaRoN is 10 years old now!!! It seems like just yesterday that he was a chunky, rolly, 10 pound baby with huge dark smiling eyes looking up at me for the first time. He has grown into such a wonderfully smart and compassionate child. Caleb surprises us each day with his growing intelligence. He is such a sensitive young boy who cares about others more than himself. We're hoping he rubs off on Caraline a little!!! :) He shows her lots of love and adoration, so we know that she sees and learns from him more and more everyday. He has a heart for Jesus and we are so proud of him! We continue to pray, daily, that he follows through on his commitments and follows God's path that is laid out before him. We celebrated Caleb at mom's with his aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents. We enjoyed family with shrimp etoufee, chocolate cake, and burgers over the weekend!
