A Weekend Birthday and Fun


My daughter celebrated her birthday with us over the weekend. There's nothing that she enjoys much more than playing with her nephews and her brother. I captured some of it from the warmth of my dining room. Good thing I wasn't practicing photo quality as I would've missed some good things.

I can now properly thank Penny at The Comforts of Home for the $50 gift certificate I won there recently. How timely as one of my choices was Anthropologie, which just so happens to be one of my daughter's favorite places. I was able to pass along that blessing for part of her birthday gift. Yay! When she makes her selection, I hope to share it with you.

Edited to Add: Shoot! I was trying to postdate, but I obviously don't know the difference between 12:25 am and 12:25 pm. Oh well!

  8. Hi Vee, thanks for stopping by my blog. My, but yours is so wonderful. Scrolling through your posts, I feel like a kid in a candy store. You post all the things that I love! The pictures from the fair, the amazing train and pretty guitar, the lovely burdhouse with flowers. I have always wanted to visit New England. No beach islands for me, if I had my choice it would be Maine or New Hampshire in the fall. We both love James Herriot! I have read all his books and watched the series on PBS. We also seem to like many of the same movies. You are a very good photographer, and apparently good with the computer, I don't know how you got those numbers on todday's pictures, but what a good idea! I've been trying to find a place to follow you, but maybe you don't have that box, I'll take another look before I leave. Blessings.

  9. Oh Vee, what a perfectly fun day! You completely captured a beautiful afternoon with your family. I know you enjoyed every moment of it. Your autumn color is just beautiful! I think I would move up North just for a beautiful autumn.

    I hope you have a wonderful week!

  11. A belated Happy Birthday to your daughter, Vee! And congrats on your gift certificate, too - my daughter (and I) love Anthro!

    These are great photos of your kids playing around. And great photos of your trip to the fair, too! I love the light on the horse's rear end, the gypsy wagon and the Brad Paisley guitar! In fact, they're all great! It was a beautiful day for the fair!

  15. I loved to shop Anthropologie - and the Sundance catalog. Your tree is beautiful. Our leaves are still pretty green but it's finally looking more like fall and getting into the 40s during the night...whew...I thought the summer would never end (we had more days in the 100s than AR has ever had before!).

  25. I just visited our NEW Anthropologie store that opened here last Friday!!! I love it--even found a few things I might purchase later for gifts. Didn't buy a thing--it was just wonderful eye candy to enjoy!
