Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

I found this yesterday when I went wandering around the internet. It's very cool to print as a mini book, but I think I just may use it for journaling blocks.

You can find the download here:

In other news, last night we were at the high school for the Awards of Excellence night. Spencer got an Honour Roll award as well as the Grade 12 music award. Of course, he didn't tell me until Wednesday that he was getting the Honour Roll award (which we knew that he was on the honour roll anyway) but he didn't say anything about the music award. Actually, I don't even think he knew that he was getting it until it was in his hand. What a guy! We're so proud of him!

Today he turns 17! Where does the time go? I have to admit that I'm struggling with his growing up ... and in all likelyhood leaving home next year for University. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for him and his future, I'm just not ready for one of my chicks to fly the coop.

Here are some then and now pictures. In the first one he's the baby, of course. In the second one he's the cute blondie on the left. (although, they're all cute!)

And now:

Happy birthday Spencer! We love you!


  1. Congratulations to Spencer!!! Being the musical family that you are, you must be extra proud of him for all his accomplishments.

  2. Congratulations to Spencer! This is awesome. Thanks for the link too. Have a great weekend! :)

  3. Happy birthday Spencer.

  4. Happy Birthday, Spencer, and congratulations on your accomplishments.

  5. It's hard to believe Spencer is 17! He was only a few days old when Don and I were married. He was soooo cute...and still is, of course.

    Now I am feeling old!

    Happy birthday, Spencer!
