Random Tuesday: The Birthday and Christmas Edition.
Happy Tuesday Everyone!
So, I forgot to tell you guys about Pookah’s birthday!
Last year, we spent it just three of us. Now while that was fine with me, it just seemed that it would be even more fun to spend the day with my parents. The doting Grandparents that they are.
We arrived and the first thing we see is this:
We put together his gift( yes, he only got one, and I didn’t even buy that one). And we found our way outside so that Pookah could play around outside.
He loved it! My aunt has grandchildren too, and since she lives right across the yard* literally) Pookah played with her toys too. I took photos of EVERYTHING of course.
And we sang Happy Birthday to Pookah. It was then that I discovered that he knew the whole song. They must sing it at school parties a lot.
Overall, it was a wonderful day! And I’m glad Pookah got a chance to run around in the fresh air and have fun with my parents and his little cousins.
Now, the Christamas tree….
I must preface these pictures with the fact that yesterday, I got my 50mm 1.8 lens from Veronica over at Crunchyvtmommy. She was upgrading and looking to sell her lens. It came just in time for Christmas Tree lights LOL
It’s going to take some getting used to. I’m so used to my kit lens and the zoom. The nifty fifty(as it is lovingly called!) is a prime lens, so it is stationary. YOU have to move instead of zooming in.
Here is some stuff….
And of course, it was Cyber Monday.
I had my credit card out….
I used it…..
I’m ashamed to say how much…
But I got a few actions for Photoshop Elements, a few for Lightroom, and a new laptop……
*bowing my head in shame*.
Oh and an update on the sleeping situation: Mommy 1 Pookah 1. I won the first night. After about an hour. He won last night. After an hour and 45 mintues. I weakened and rocked him to sleep. SMH.
Oh well, tonight its’ C-Dub’s turn. I’ll be at work!
