Happy me.

For the last couple of years I have been wanting a new Digital SLR camera. Yesterday Pat treated me to my wish. I am now the proud owner of an Canon Rebel EOS XSi~ SWEET!

It's a pretty expensive gift so I decided it should be for my birthday and Anniversary combined. A gal we know said it was my "Birth-A-Versary" gift and it stuck. I have been studying the manual and taking pictures of salt and pepper shakers and other random things as I figure it all out. The pictures are truly amazing. I have to say I am impressed. Here are a few from outside around the Casa. :-)

Homecoming Dance

JP atttended his first Homecoming Dance this past weekend at Guam High. One of our neighbors had the bright idea to arrange the shuttle to take the kids there and back (45min each way). For $15 a head it was great. The kids are all friends and I think they had a good time.

The colors are so pretty....

This past week has been a 'whirlwind' (pun intended!) of activity. Three potential Typhoons, #18W, Parma (which had me thinking of italian food) and Melor, have come and mercifully gone by with nothing more than some rain and breezy conditions. The good news is that we had a chance to prepare for the real thing and I know we would be as ready as we could be. The bad news is~ no Typhoon parties, and of course the destruction in the more northern Marianas islands that are in the path of the storms.
