OMGosh was I surprised and excited to see my carrot runner, so perfect. She did it, and she kept it as a surprise and it was an awesome one. I wish it was Easter all over again just so I could display this table runner!!! Oh heck, I am displaying it right now, and I don't care that it is the middle of May!!!
I had a great time with my family and friends and it was all thanks to this man!!!
Thanks honey!!!! It was great and you did surprise me afterall!!

This is Kathy. She is the Bookkeeper/ Office Coordinator for the Danielson office. She makes sure everyone gets paid...especially me...since I can't remember pay day to save my life. She didn't let me take her picture today so I am going to post the 2 that I was able to snap while she wasn't looking.
So there you have it.
These are "the girls"!

And this is with my Nikon D40 with the wide angle setting from the same place:
Granted the light in on in the second one and the table setting is different, but that is not the real difference. The real difference is that you get a real sence of the whole room instead of the feeling of a tunnel like the first one. Now don't get me wrong, I love my Sony for point and click pictures that don't have any special needs (wide angle, close up, stop action) but I am really loving my Nikon. It really does take great pictures! Now if I can just get better subjects other than my house!!!! And the residents of this house have requested that I stop taking their pictures! I don't understand what the problem is there! LOL! I think I may need to start hunting for new subjects!

I love my collection...I'd love to aquire a whole bunch of Amish bonnets...and aprons. I don't know if you can tell but the crocks have Amish people painted on them. I'd love to visit Amish country and take a whole bunch of pictures to turn into artwork! Oh, to dream. Until then, whenever I see an Amish doll, I want to buy it...or someone buys them for me...and these are just part of my collection.

Confirmation went off without a hitch yesterday! Thank goodness. I am loving this new camera so much. I snapped that 1st picture in the church with NO flash from many rows back! It's great, isn't it? And the cake- why it's chocolate filled! Yea, Matthew wanted a chocolate filled cake (not an ice cream cake) and so after many phone calls to many bakeries I found this one at BigY!!! And at a much better price than a regular bakery. And of course, the house was full of family and friends after the service. Matthew made out well in gifts (he got all $$)!! Now I can think about that aweome Mother's Day breakfast tomorrow. And it looks like I am going to be spending it with both of my kids!! Yay!!! And my mother! I made her a neat little gift this year, I will post it tomorrow after breakfast. I got the idea after watching the movie "Spanglish". So, I can hardly wait to see her reaction. And I will be bringing my new camera so that I can take lots of pictures of the family breakfast. A day of pampering for mom! Oh yeah!!!

May is here!! Yea! Mother's Day... my birthday... real Spring!!! Warm weather... cooking out... driving with the top off more...longer days...I love May! I love the fall, too. But May brings the blooming of lots of things around here. The tulips have starting blooming as well as my new Weeping Cherry tree that my guys gave me last year and it was just out of bloom when it arrived here, so this is the first time I have had a chance to see it in bloom. I love it!!! This weekend is going to be a gardening weekend for sure. I need to do some cleaning of those beds and there are some spots that need more mulch. And weeding!!! Why do only the weeds grow in the winter??? So that is the plan! And maybe a trip to the Garden Center for some annuals...it's never too early to get those hanging baskets going...and I have put my request for Mother's Day in...pink climbing rose bushes to plant against the porch! That will be a sight! As well as helping to cover the mess the old owners made of the side of the porch. But with a nice trellis and a few pretty pink blooming climbers it will be well hidden! Pictures of that project as it progresses!!!
