Happy Birthday, Mac!

I actually got a lot of stitching done on Footprints yesterday. You really can't tell in the picture because a lot of it was the satin stitches and back stitching.

I want to thank everybody for their wonderful comments on Footprints. They really help me stay motivated. :)

Today is Mac's 9th birthday. I always get a little sentimental today because of it. One reason is he is my "baby" our last child. But, the main reason is because both he and I had to go through a lot for him to be here today alive, healthy and completely normal.

He was born 11 weeks early weighing 2 pounds 11 ounces. He was so tiny! My thumb was as wide as his leg! I won't bore you with the details but he had to deal with a lot of problems for the first years of his life. Now, he is 9 years old and hasn't been to the Dr for being sick in at least a year or more. Actually, he has seen the doctor for more accidents than illnesses. LOL!! He is all boy. :)

We aren't doing a big celebration tonight. We are having cake and ice cream with some of the neighbor kids. Mac just had to have a '57 Chevy Route 66 birthday cake. We also bought him a new game for his game boy and a new outfit. He was even surprised with the presents this year. He thought I forgot to get his presents because I had them hid good this year. :)

Happy Birthday, Mac!

Great job - you made it through the border on Footprints - that is an accomplishment all on its own!

Happy Birthday Mac. Sounds like a difficult time when he was born, so glad he turned out to be healthy :0)

Your footprints looks just beautiful.
