Macen's 4th

This past weekend, we celebrated Macen's 4th birthday at Lake Grant.  We had a great time.  My sister made spaghetti, garlic bread & salad for dinner.  It was fantastic, the sauce was homemade-which honesty-even though it had green peppers in it-it was fabulous.  Click here for the recipe, you won't be sorry.

I am going to cook a big batch of this over the weekend, bag it & freeze it for quick meals during baseball season.

I took my new (used) back up camera with me, so I could snap a few photos of Olivia while she was playing with her cousins.  I also wanted to get a few of the birthday boy as well.  My goal was to shoot in monochromatic all day long.  I did shoot most of the images captured during the day that way, but then towards the end of the evening I had to snap a few of Olivia in color so I could show off her sweet little outfit & the soft colors of the new overalls we bought her.

I hope you'll enjoy!

I should also add, another reason I decided to switch to color was after I shot this little girl, and her blue blue eyes.  Beautiful.

And to explain this last photo, all day long-O was sitting in these chairs & wiggling and playing around until she got herself into this position.  All day long we were getting her out-this particular time-it upset her that she did this (to the side of us) & we didn't jump right up to get her out-no child was actually hurt during this stunt :)

with love, Lela

Make today worth something....

Make today worth something, to yourself, to the people you love-to total strangers.  Try to just be a nice human today.  Don't yell or get frustrated at your kids, don't lie to anyone, don't get angry on the interstate at stupid drivers, don't cheat, tip big, smile big & tell those people in your life that have stuck it out with you how much you care.....just for one day-can you do it?
with love, Lela
