You Say it's Your Birthday! It's my birthday too, yeah!

Well the real day has come and gone, the actual birthday.. that is. It was the 9th. Same as John Lennon's. Imagine. Sister Sarah ( one down the line from me..) shares Sir Paul McCartney's birthday. This coincidence so amuses me that I have likely mentioned it on the pages of this blog previously. The personalities fit us well too. She is cute and less controversial than I am.

So on the big day:
  • Jake got his new "grill" going.. red and green.. He will switch to orange and black for the December fitting. Very amusing.
  • I made myself a fantastic chocolate cake from scratch, recipe off the back of the Hershey's can is highly recommended.
  • and my lovin' husband got me the coolest camera.. Yup.. My first big girl camera. Lots to learn. Canon Rebel ( good name, eh?) EOS XTI.

Let's check this thing out:
Picture of the bead light pull (5 shots to get this one, checking the settings and all):


And one Jake got of the light pull's new part time job as cat toy. (Yes, I let him play with my new goodie. I am trying desperately to be a better sharer. It is not easy. But truly he is a great photographer... better than me.)



Grill documentation:

I am sorry.. how cute is that face? Good ol' tinsel teeth. Poor critter.

Photography is fun! i am going to do lots of practice. I have taken 400 pictures in the last 3 days. I love digital. Love It.

And I have been crafting. Really. I am actually working through the Guilt List and have started on an all Handmade Holiday for this year. I had hoped to finish my guilt list before my birthday (old business over, new year=new business ... but I still have 4 people on there.) I will post wip pics if I can't force myself to actually complete anything..

And speaking of old business:

Robiewakenobie.. you get the ring!! But, as usual, Blogger will only let me know you live in Lexington. So, email me, lady!

And Clair in England: You get a birthday goodie too. So you email me too and I will send a surprise... That hopefull will chase your postal blues away.

More Cool stuff coming soon. But for now, I need to run!

Happy belated! What a great gift from the husband. I've been looking at cameras and cannot figure out what to get. It makes my head spin.

The kid is very handsome!

Happy Birthday! The Hershey's cake is the best — only I always double the frosting. Can't have too much, you know!
