This is the original that shows all of the beautiful veins.
This one I altered with Picnik. I do not remember the sets.
Now I am on my way to the garden to cut a rose for my birthday.... another year older with a very full heart of love and family.

Our house has been on a big roller coaster ride. Some days are really fantastic and others are really stressful. It has everything to do with the Emperor and Princess. You see the Emperor is adorable and charming as can be. He does know how to push sister's buttons though.
Our little chalet we are renting.
Great room with fireplace.
Outdoor deck with fireplace and BBQ grill.
I will be spending alot of time here after hiking and biking in our private hot tub!
Love the running around shots? It was impossible to get him to stay in one place let alone get one picture with them together! LOL....
He insisted in wearing 2 jackets. It was rather chilly like in the low 60's and drizzling at times.
Princess opted out for the red white and blue theme this year. It gets harder as they grow up to have them comply with mother's wishes!
One shot I was able to get with them all together!
Yes, I decorate for the 4th also!
My favorite shot although it is not real clear!
A quiet 4th for us this year. We had a picnic outside in the backyard. Then we did our own fireworks in front of the house. Princess does not like the loud Booms but tolerated it. Emperor on the other hand was just right there e in the midst of everything saying ooh and aah.
Where we live everyone does their own fireworks. It can go on until 1 am in the morning. We can also see fireworks from various area's of outlining Seattle.
Truly a 4th to remember for Emperor the first of many!
Mom and Dad Father's Day.
They came up to visit from down south. They were here for 5 days. We celebrated Princesses 11th Birthday. Then they treated us to a family get away at a near by Hilton for a night. It was fun and Princess loved the pool. We did not let Emperor in the pool as we were not sure at the time about his ear. Now we know it is fine for him to be in the pool. YEAH! He loves the water too!!
My handsome Daddy!
Emperor did not last that long a breakfast.... So, we were headed back up to the room for a nap.
I love the golfer look outfit my Mom got him. This boy loves hats...
My sweet girl and hubby on Father's Day!
Honey, you are the greatest and the love of my life...... I love your strength, compassion for living things, your funny sense of humor, your gentleness.... You are my rock and the the calm in all of our sea's.
God blessed me with such a gift !
