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:

My mother bought this for me when I was 2 or 3. Now my son is riding it. Wowzer. Talk about family heirlooms…

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!

Happy Tuesday!

    Cute photos. I love family heirlooms some things you can pass from generation to generation. A new laptop is a good purchase don’t worry I am right behind you in the new year. We are going to try to get a desktop I feel I work better when I am stationed in one place. These kids have got to sleep through the night I left mines up right by herself…in the dark. She probably talked herself to sleep who knows.

    Awww, I hope you brought that rocking horse home with you!!! What kind of laptop did you get?

    • rosesdaughter says:

      I got a dell it has 8mb of ram . The largest amount of memory that offer. Running all of these editing programs at once needs a lot of room!
