Happy Mother's Day and More

This is my Mother's Day present and I love it.

Now for the story, a couple of weeks ago, I dropped my small Canon point and shoot, broke it beyond repair. I was disappointed, I liked the little camera to stick in my purse. I have a digital SLR, Canon Rebel with 2 additional lenses. This is great for photographing sports, flowers and other items (when I want to haul my big bag), but I like the little one to have in my purse or pocket and also use for my sewing.

Well, on Wednesday, I bring the twins home from school. Hubby tells them to put on their softball clothes, they have to go to hitting practice. Today I find out this was all a set-up, they put their sweats on over their clothes and head to the camera store. As soon as they were out of sight off came the sweats. Meredith tells me she was so hot in the house with all those clothes on waiting to leave! Isn't that the sweetest? I feel like one special mom.

The kittens name - well, the light color one is Tess, the red one was Jane (the sisters on 27 Dresses) then it was Twizzler (like red licorice) know it is Runt(not flattering but a perfect fit). It is so small and always has been according to the original owners. So the kittens are Tess and Runt.

I just came home from Erin's Baccalaureate, a very nice service. Now one week left until graduation and it is a very busy week. Move college daughter to the city for her summer internship, senior scholarship night and two days of state track meet.

Buttons - white ones are the winner, I liked those the best, too. Now to change the bottom one and take pictures again. I am entering it in the Creative Machine email list contest. I will review the blouse tomorrow.

Tonight I am maybe going to cut out my graduation dress.

Finally, Happy Mother's Day!


  1. Awww how sweet! I love my little camera too for keeping in my purse. I hate lugging my big one around when i don't have to! LOL

  2. Oh that is so sweet about your new camera! Happy Mother's Day to you!

  3. Lucky you and how sweet they connived together. ;) I know what you mean about dragging your big camera along. I don't really have a back up, so I need a BIG purse. :)

  4. Great Mother's Day gift! We celebrate Mother's day on a different day here is Portugal, it's the first Sunday of May (so we lelebrated it the week before!)
