Why I Got Up At 5AM on my Day Off!

Benjamin is the reason I woke up at 5AM on my day off! If it was anything other than my family I would have been sound asleep at least until 9am... okay maybe 10:30 if I'm lucky!
Ben's school had a 'Spirit Rally' today and they had to dress up as something as the same letter as their first name. First thing that comes to Ben's mind is "Blue Man Group"! Great... way to make it easy Ben! LOL!
Actually, I LOVE that Ben has such a fun creative mind and that he chose this because somehow it really suits him! He has an amazing personality that way!
Last year around Christmas time we showed the boys who "The Blue Man Group" was. We found some awesome You Tube videos of them. I believe it was the next day, we went to Canadian Tire and just as we walked in the door we saw this wierd looking instrument and upon closer inspection we see that it is "The Blue Man Group" instrument from one of their videos - we all laughed together and decided we had to purchase it! Now we can actually use it for something other than as a dust collector! LOL

Isn't he a cutie pie! I like his hair all slicked back like Elvis! Hee-hee!

Yes, once again... my son Benjamin is bald! (This time however it is a bald cap - LOL) This summer his Father bet him $40 to shave his head bald to go and watch the movie 'The Last Airbender' ~ AND HE DID IT! AND I HATED IT! Thus the reason I refer to my hubbub as "his Father"! (Now I can laugh at it but maybe I'm not quite ready for capital letters so... lol!

After almost two hours of prepping, blotting, dabbing, and dabbing again...

And Ben is finished! Usually Ben is not so "Freakishly scary looking"! LOL!
He's actually super cute and super Benjamin! My baby is all blue today!

Happy Creating everyone... I think I got my dose of blue today!
