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!
