I was going to put out my candle but decided Ben really needed a lighthouse so I was going to make him one. Unfortunately Damien was sick that day so I got nothing done since he couldn't go to school he was here all day. (Ever try and do anything with a clingy, sick, two year old at your heels?) I was determined to get him his lighthouse by the 7:30 deadline (every candle and lighthouse was to be lit then) but by the time Damien was picked up and meals made and eaten I was left with 40 minutes to get a lighthouse together.
It didn't turn out anything like I wanted it to. I wanted to paint it and really make it realistic looking but that isn't what was meant to be however I did get this somewhat primitive one together and lit it right on time. What it lacks in looks, it is full of with love.
(Because it is light out when I took the picture you can't see the 'light' but it is working.)
Here is my lighthouse I built just for you.
I know it isn't the best but it'll have to do.
Looking down from heaven I hope you see.
All the love and sorrow put into it by me.
Happy Birthday Ben!
