Owen had a halloween party at school today. Luckily I work two streets away and was able to sneak out for an hour and see him at school. They had a parade and then a performer by the name of Tom Webber came to sing for them. He comes into school a few times a month so he knows all the kids and all the kids LOVE him! Owen was Wolverine. He was so excited to wear this costume. We got it a month ago and made him hold off until today. We put it in the closet so it would be out of sight. He didnt forget for a second that it was in there. We still have to go trick or treating tonight. I am excited for that. Owen has had a whole day of Halloween. He is going to be so tired tonight.

My Pictures

Here is the start of my Photography life!!! It is nothing great, I am still practicing!

A Walk down a path in Westport
My Handsome Guy

Some really pretty flowers on the side of the road.

I will probably post more as I go but for now these were just fun to take.
Owen practically runs away from me when I take my camera out. Hopefully this weekend I will get some good shots of him. I will be making up a photoshoot at my house and will be letting him throw balls at me so I am sure he will love that. We will see how it comes out. I think the more I practice the better I will get. Hopefully someday I will be a professional photographer.

My Bday

My birthday was yesterday and while yesterday kind of sucked due to me having to work the weekend was great. I had a really great birthday weekend.

On Friday night I received the second best gift I have ever gotten (1st being my camera). I got a goodie bag from my husband. It had a 70-300mm lens, camera bag, two batteries, camera cleaning kit, picture saving program and tripod. Who could ask for anything better. Well the next day I got a pair of uggs from my mother!!!! I have been wanting a pair and was going to get a pair in the next few weeks when voila!!!! My mother got me a pair for my bday! How awesome is that. On Saturday we got to have a night out. We went to an eighties themed party in NJ. It was so much fun. Owen stayed with my mom. Of course he had a blast. He got to see his cousins and my aunts and uncles. On Sunday when we picked him up Bill and my mom had us stay for a nice ham dinner. Kris came up and ate with us. It was a really relaxing Sunday at my moms. Bill cooked an awesome dinner (as usual). My mom and Owen baked me a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and pink writing (per Owens request). Owen thinks I have to have a pink cake and mermaid stuff. I guess its because I am a girl and that's what girls have.

Then there is the gift card I got from Brians parents from Ritz camera. They are always sooooo thoughtful!!! I will be going there very soon to get a flash. That will complete my kit (for now). The rest will be up to me. I have to work hard at taking pictures. Some how get paid and add on to my equipment! I really dont know what to say about this past bday other than thank you everyone for making it great.
