did you think i had been buried under the stack of marking and report cards? not to worry...after i finally finished i felt kinda burned out. sorry for being so quiet over the last couple weeks.
on saturday we celebrated my nephew aaron's first birthday!
here he is enjoying the bubbles his uncle steven blew for him.
we had such a great day...it was warm and sunny. everyone just sat outside in the lush backyard and chatted the day away. so relaxing.
my brother-in-law, brian (aaron's dad) is a rabid collector. he has a way of finding the most amazing gems in thrift stores, yard sales, you name it. one of his latest lovely finds was a "lot" of 5 vintage eyeglass frames for $7 at a neighbourhood yard sale. he knew his growing collection would make me salivate so he brought them out to show me.
then the ladies got a little goofy trying them all on and posing for the camera:
lana (my step-sister)
mary (brian's mom)
when we got home from the party we found this little guy on the roof outside our window:
so cute. but so bad!
