Happy Brilliant Birthday to Hood #1…

September 23rd, 2013 · 12 Comments

A day or two ago I became the mother of a sixteen year old!!! The oldest member of the gang turned sixteen… which is really quite alarming since I still consider myself to be about nineteen… but sixteen he is and I feel the time flying past as he grows up in great leaps and bounds – never one to wait patiently for things to just happen!!!


So to our man of many talents…


To our photographer of note…


Never willing to give up a shot…


Our master storyteller…


The best big brother…


Our LEGO mastercrafter…


The scientist in training…


Our artist…


And teacher of life-lessons…


Happy Birthday to Hood #1

I cannot believe how fast the years have flown by…





Hat’s off to you…





May all your years be filled with fun and adventures because we sure are enjoying the ride!!!

    Thank you Tammy, possibly my favourite photo of him ever… he was about two days old and that spunky little face should have warned me of the energy that was to come!!! Have a great week!!!
