I suppose at 17 yrs old you would prefer to be called Ted instead of Teddy. (Note to Teddy: you will ALWAYS be Teddy to me)
Today you will spend the day at the Cajun Heartland State Fair as you do every year. Your mom will be with you, Carrie won't. She is spending today with her dad in Lydia,La. I'm sure your day will be perfect and later today I will join you guys for some birthday cake. Here's hoping this is the best birthday yet.
Happy Birthday my big boy!
