Happy Birthday to My Dear, Sweet Wesley!

Nineteen years ago today my Wesley arrived!  It was a very quick delivery; he almost made his appearance in the car on the way to the hospital.  Mike was quite nervous, but we made it with 45 minutes to spare!

Wesley has always been a sweetie.  He was a real cuddler when he was a baby, and both boys still give parents and grandparents (and aunts and uncles…) lots of hugs.   Since The Princess Bride is one of our favorite movies, I call Wes, "My dear, sweet Wesley."  (I know; in the movie his name is Westley, but I didn't want to confuse my Wesley!)  So far, he hasn't said, "Mom, can you stop calling me that?"  One day, I guess I'll have to, but not yet.

This isn't his birthday card, of course.  After my workshop today, I'll make his card and bake him a cake.  We had a non-dairy oreo pie for his celebration Monday, but I want to make a special cake for him today.  Do I spoil my boys?  Maybe a little.

Rachel & I were looking at projects on a web site the other night, and she was explaining to me why I liked certain ones and why I didn't like others.  I think she's going to teach a design class for me.  I'm looking forward to that a lot! 

This was one we both liked – but tweaked a little.  It was inspired by fellow demonstrator Paula Stewart.  I love the softness of the watercolored flowers.

Once again, I'm running out the door.  Thanks for stopping by!
