Early Birthday Gifts...

We had a family dinner last night to celebrate my birthday.  It's not until Sunday but because Mum works weekends we (well she) decided we'd have dinner Thursday night instead.  Roast chook and veges followed by desert.  I wasn't expecting much this year because I said I didn't need anything.  I did mention that I saw some tins at Kmart that I quite liked and thought would brighten up my kitchen but Mum said she couldn't find them.

Elijah helped me open my presents and I got a huge surprise when he unwrapped a new camera!  Yay!  I have been wanting a new camera for ages and Mum knew that I liked hers so now I have one identical.

My fam bam - two younger sisters and my Mum (I do have a younger brother also) They all have crooked smiles but I can't laugh because...
I have one too!
Using the timer to capture some random poses in our pjs...
and loving the macro feature...
if only Elijah would keep still long enough for me to get a clear picture
and surprise - Mum managed to get the tins I was after :D

I can't believe I'm almost 33 - it only seems like yesterday I was in high school!  Although some days I feel like I'm trapped in an 80 year old body, there is nothing like a birthday to get you motivated again.
