Guitar Restoration


I told daddy I wanted to redo my guitar since it was starting to look really bad. Daddy asked what colors I wanted my guitar to be and I told him Red and Black. When daddy was off on Tuesday we went to get some supplies.

Black Paint – Check
Red Paint – Check
Sand Paper – Check
Putty – Check
Putty Knife – Check

So here is the photo of my guitar before we did anything:

Daddy and I sanded the guitar so we could fix all of the dents I made going crazy rocking the guitar everyday since I got it.

So daddy kept working on it and now it is ready to paint.

Daddy painted the neck of the guitar black and then he painted the guitar red. Tonight we took all of the tape off of it and put the tuner keys back on it and restrung it. Man it looks so cool and I am rockin’ on my RED guitar now. This was a great daddy and son project if you ask me.

Feb. 2010


Jace had so much fun this month. We went to see Disney Live, Blues Clues live and went to his first Skate Birthday Party.

He loved Roller Skating! At first he wanted to hold my hand all the time. And I thought for sure I was going to be so sore the next day from holding him up. But then he got the hang of it. It was more of a walk then a roll, but hey he was doing it on his own! Then he started to get in the the music and dancing to the beat! It was so cute!

Disney Live was great because the theme was music, so Jace really liked that.

Blues Clues was fun too! He wasn’t sure what to think at first with Blues Clues. He looked at me and said “Their people?” meaning that they were all actors dressed up like Blues Clues!

Getting Ready for Christmas


Jace and I went to visit Santa at his house on the Square on the night before Thanksgiving as we have since his first Christmas.  Jace loves seeing Santa so much.

When we got home Jace found an Elf wanting for him.  Santa had sent an Elf to keep an eye on him during Christmas time.  Jace had to pick a name for him.  He named him Fred.  Every day Fred would hide in a new place and then watch Jace for the day.  At night Fred would fly back to the North Pole to report back to Santa.

Every year I take Jace to pick out a special Christmas Ornament.  I like for him to pick something that means something to him.  By the time he’s out on his own he’ll have at least 18 ornaments for his first Christmas Tree.  This year he picked out the Wizard of Oz one.  We had recently watched the Wizard of Oz and Jace just loved it.  We watched it over and over again.  So I think it fit this year.

We had a nice Thanksgiving at Mamaw and Papaw’s house.  When asked what he was thankful for Jace said Fruit.

Halloween 2009


I had planned on Jace being Blue’s Clues for Halloween and bought a cute outfit for him.  Then a few days before Halloween Jace tells us that he wants to be a Witch.  Since it was the first time he really had picked what he wanted to be, we figured that we should let him be what he wanted.  So just days before Halloween I was looking for a boy-like witch costume for him.  I ended up finding one at Walmart for $16, but then on a whim I stopped at one of the thrift stores and bought the same one, with tags for $1.  (The one at Walmart came with a mask that we were not going to use and the one at the thrift store didn’t have the mask…so it worked great!)

Jace helped me make out pumpkins again this year.  Which turned out great as always.  He also helped me make daddy’s birthday cake.  We made him a football cake.

We won free tickets to see Elmo Live in Owensboro also this month.  So we all went down there and had fun!
