Happy Birthday, Dear Woody!

Hi Friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Our family is sure celebrating today! Today is my brother Woody's birthday. He is seven years old. We all woke Woody up this morning with lots of kisses and hugs. He was so happy! He smiled and laughed and giggled all day! Of course Mommy made his favorite meal - chicken and dumplings with sugar cookies for dessert! It was "doglicious", as Woody says!

It was so nice to be home today. We have had a very busy week and have enjoyed every minute of our time in the schools. Yesterday, we were at Taylorsville Elementary. If you look at the first picture, you will see that Mommy is holding Woody. The students at Taylorsville sang "Happy Birthday" to Woody yesterday. If you remember from reading "Tails...", two ladies from Louisville, Kentucky wrote "Happy Birthday" in 1893. Woody sure enjoyed hearing it yesterday from the students and today from his family!

The second picture is from Williamstown Elementary in Grant County. This is a photo of our friend, Coleman. Coleman is the young man who painted the beautiful picture of Woody. It was great to see Coleman and so many students from Grant County.

I better say goodnight. Tomorrow we will be at Medora Elementary. We have to go to bed early. I am sure that Woody will write tomorrow to tell you all the details of his birthday! He also has some neat stories from our schools this week as well as a riddle!

In the words of the Birthday Boy, "Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!"
