On May 30th I turned 26. A quarter century is in the rear-view, and half a century is just ahead... I'd better start my hunching exercises so I can hold on to my walker properly.
Anyway, enough of the pity party. The week of my birthday some extended family members from Illinois were visiting and we had a barbeque. It wasn't for my birthday, but somewhere in the middle it became one for a few minutes when Sarah produced a cheesecake she had made for me, and Shaina and Joel each gave me a present.
Shaina's present was wrapped by Sasha, who had given me a gift a few days before, but I didn't even think to photograph it. Sasha's wrapping jobs are a works of art in themselves. You hate to rip the paper off them.
But in the end, that's the only way to get to the contents, so the ripping has to happen.
Shaina's gift to me was a notebook with a cool zebra print on it. The pages are blank with no lines. It's really nice.
Sasha's gift had been a DVD of the movie Candleshoe.
We have been in a classic Disney mood recently and watching a lot of 50's, 60's, and 70's era live action Disney films and this one of our favorites.
Joel's gift was not quite as expertly wrapped. But at least it was funny. :p
The inside was much better than the outside.
As you know, I can't wait for this movie! :D I decided to NOT look at this book until after I've seen the movie, as it is quite likely that I will spoil a lot of the plot for myself if I do. So until the 23rd. The book will sit untouched, where I won't see it and have it tempting me to look at it. :)
I wish I'd taken a few more pictures that day, but I didn't, so this one will have to do. :)
