Whew. In the last eight days we have been to two parties and hosted two parties. Okay I am done until the summer party season when my two daughters both graduate. Mom is tired, dad is tired, okay we are all tired but satisfied with the fact that we have had some good times with those we love. Today was warm and sunny and we barbecued and enjoyed the patio. Perfect weather. We never know if it will rain or shine for my daughter's December birthday but it usually is sunny.
We take a photo with our kids on their birthdays every year. I so wish my mom would have done that. She never wanted her picture taken and we don't have many of her. Don't indulge your camera shyness. Get out from behind it and get in front of it so your kids have lots of shots of you to enjoy and make your folks let you take shots of them or sneak them in un-posed if you have to.
I see a pattern here. I like heart shaped bowls. I own lots of them.
