Happy Brilliant Birthday to Hood #1…

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!!!
