November 29/Princess Birthday

Today is my youngest daughter's sixth
birthday. She had a princess party to celebrate.

Here is the little birthday princess on her throne.

Decorations are all ready.

My son was the castle guard.

The table was all set.

Sister princess is ready.

The banner is made.

The girls all arrive dressed in the princess finery.

We did lots of crafts and decorated cupcakes.

Here is the birthday girl with her cupcake.

We played pin the kiss on the frog.

We made magic wands as one of our crafts.

A great time was had by all.

I missed barn charm last week as I didn't have
any new pictures of barns to post.
This is the only barn that I saw this week.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday Photo Challenge -November 20, 2011

It is time for the hunt again.
Here we go:

1. Mainly One Colour

If I have to pick one colour, it would be my
favourite colour, red.

2. Around the Home

You never know what you will find around this home.
I decided that I would take the first thing
I stumbled upon. It happened to be my husband
in a mask. He is not nearly as sinister as he looks.

3. Reflection

Wire balls on a mirror make it difficult to tell
which ones are real and which are the reflection.

4. Writing

My grandmother passed away 17 years ago. I am so
happy to not only have her recipes, but to have them
in her handwriting that I remember so well.

5. Water

There is no water yet, but, once we clean up,
hang up and hook up this old school
fountain, there will be no shortage of it.

My far away daughter surprised us this weekend
with an unexpected visit.

Her sisters were sad that she had to leave again.

There goes her train.
Bye for now - see you at Christmas.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday Photo Challenge -November 13, 2011

Sunday Scavenger Hunt Time

This week's prompts were

very challenging.

1. Before and After Processing



2. Opposing Lines

Not really sure if this works but there are
lines in the floor, the door and the trim.

3. Custom Bokeh
I just didn't have the time to try this one.

4. Which shoes should I wear?

There always seem to be an assortment of shoes
by the door to choose from.

5. Little Features

Tiny little one year old hand beside my husband's hand.
