HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!

Today my baby boy is 17!! I can't tell you how strange that feels! One more year and I will have no more minors to raise. It is a very bittersweet feeling. Sam was such a sweet little boy, that I absolutely adored!! When I would look at that beautiful face it felt like my heart would just burst with joy. I have such wonderful fond memories of him in the back seat of my car wanting to hear Funiculi, Funicula one more time. I remember the summers we spent in England, and how fun he was in The Sherwood Forest, dressed like Robinhood, and the monastery, dressed as a monk. I remember the time he flew through the air into my arms when he was startled in the mirror maze. If I knew how to get pictures on my blog you would all be looking at my favorite picture of Sam dressed in his wise man costume for his kindergarden Christmas pageant. His teen years have not been nearly as fun, but I have to admit that Sam is a very good boy. He has given us less trouble than most, and we are very proud of him. We expect great things from him in the future, as he is very smart and very talented. We love you Sam!! Happy Birthday!!

I am going to pretend that Amanda's recent post was done by you, since it was about your house. so here is my comment to you. WOW, your house looks so great! I love the rock front! I am glad you have finally updated, I have been wondering how you have been doing. And it looks like you have been busy refacing your house. Did you do it yourself, or hire it out?
