Happy Birthday!!!

     Sixteen years ago, on October 30th at 2:12 am , our youngest was born. We  brought him home to the house we live in on October 31st. (They really do rush you out!)  His sister and brother came that morning with their Dad, met him and we packed up! We arrived home on a rainy, Halloween Sunday . Needless to say, the doorbell rang every few minutes!
        He grew into the sweetest, funniest liitle guy and is a wonderful person. Everyone who meets him says he is so polite, friendly and helpful. He goes out of his way to help the older folks on the street...brings up their papers and pails...amazing. He's a very good student, plays three sports and  is on several service groups at school (Key, SPARC,SADD). That's what you wish for...that they grow to be a good person. He has good examples in his sister and brother, too. His dad and I are so proud! Am I bragging? Well, I get this day to do it, right?


Happy Birthday, Todd!!!

  4. Hi, and Happy Birthday to your son!
    You asked me on my blog if I glazed only the sanded parts or the whole thing? The answer...the whole thing. If I didn't glaze the whole thing, then it would still look very white. Now the whole bed has an "old" look to it. I just glazed over the sanded parts too. It made them a little darker. If you wanted the sanded parts to show even more, you could dab a little stain, like minwax "provencial" on them and wipe it off. It will darken the sanded parts even more. Then you would still glaze over it when you do the rest of the piece.
    How that helps!

  5. Happy birthday to your dear son. They grow up too quickly, don't they!
