Show and Tell Friday!
Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.
Almost 11 years ago, Grace was born. The wife of one of Phillip's co-workers made us this cross-stitched sign, which we hung on Grace's bedroom door.
She made one for Emily 16 months later.
And one for Benjamin 19 months later.
This past summer Grace and Emily asked if they could take them off their door. I was very sad, but said yes and tucked them away. This past week, Benjamin asked to take his down, too.
I decided to hang them in this little spot in our bedroom. Maybe someday they will want them back on their doors. Thank you for looking at my short and sweet (hopefully!) show and tell!
ETA: When our midwife weighed Benjamin the scale went back and forth between 9lbs. 15 1/2 oz. and 10 lbs. I insisted she go with the smaller number. :0)
