First, last Friday during a Wal-Mart stop I came across this PERFECT thing for my little grandson Cody that I just couldn't pass up. He is getting to be such a little handful. Climbing EVERYWHERE, getting into EVERTYTHING, and just generally kind of wild, haha. Soo his father's son. I often thank God that Joe was my first so that I was young and had no other little ones to focus on...Anyway, I purchased this even though it is a BRIGHT PINK...haha I did search for a more manly blue, but there was none to be had. Soo I figured he would never care. He is enjoying it in his front yard tree as I knew he would...
HOW DARLING IS HE?
Then, I wanted to share some of the engagement pictures that my niece had taken as a result of the first place prize she won at a Bridal show. They are truly some of the best I have ever seen. Of course it does help that he had such a darling couple to photograph...They got this session where they went to 3 different locations AND a free 8 by 8 digital book. Needless to say they have booked this guy for their wedding, which makes him a pretty smart guy...Anyway, here are a few of my favorites...
LOVE THE BIRDS IN THIS ONE
Then, on Sat. morning I got a WONDERFUL gift in the mail from Cindy at Letters from Midlife. I won her give away and I just couldn't be more pleased. She has a great blog that I have been enjoying for a while now. Her posts are always something I can relate to, and look forward to everyone. She takes BEAUTIFUL photographs and makes her own note cards. I LOVE them... and some of these lovely cards are what I won. Please take the time and pop by for a visit to her blog, you will be soo glad you did. Here are some pics of my beautiful note cards, though it doesn't really do them justice. Thank you soo much Cindy, I can't wait to use them..
CLOSER LOOK...NOTICE THE EDGES
And then finally, on Sat. Jeff & I collected 3 of our grandkids and traveled down to Cypress to celebrate the first birthday of my brother's son, little Dean. What an adorable baby he is. Big brown eyes and a darling little grin. We had a picnic at the park and the kids all enjoyed themselves on the playground equipment, with the pinata, and with a quick game of football as well. I didn't get as many pics of the day as I wanted to, but my sister Diane at Mountain Moments got some REALLY good ones. Be sure and check them out as well. I really do need to get ones of those cameras, ; )
