The rainbow

Last night, just about at sunset, we had the most marvelous lighting and a massive, bright rainbow. I hustled my boys outside to try and use the light to my advantage. My camera isn't that great, but you can still see it a little bit. These are untouched, exactly as I took them, so I don't know why the sky is bluer in the picture with the boys in it!

Lia's baby shower

 The ladies at the Gospel Hall threw a shower for my sister and baby Lia last night. It was a great time, with so much food and fellowship. Lia was royally spoiled and will be well dressed, for sure!
 the theme was "under the sea", complete with a fabulous cake:

a bathtub full of "sea water" (blue juice mixed with pop) not sure how they got the "seafoam" though!

Goldfish on the snack table (of which two are happily swimming in my tank at the moment)
Thanks so much to the talented ladies who organized it and made the terrific food!

I hope they have a good, productive year :)
