A cool breeze in the night *

I have been saving up for a digital camera and I’m very close to my goal. Very exciting. 😀 I’m going out to Wal-Mart after my shift tomorrow to find out for sure the price of the camera I want and then I will know exactly how much money I need. I can’t go by the Wal-mart website because I think it’s in American dollars.

Today is my dad’s birthday and I gave him a cake because he didn’t want any gifts (just like my mom). Keesje gave him his favourite snack food: apple cinnamon crunchies. My parents’ birthdays are too close together! lol

I had dinner at Kendra and Jay’s last night. Marcel came over too and we watched a bunch of “Friends: Season 9” episodes. I really need to catch up on my Friends DVDs! I only have seasons 1-6. I’m just a little behind. 😉 We took some photos because Kendra kept wanting pictures of me with my hair down for the slideshow I’m putting together for their wedding. The most amusing part of the night was when the boys had a water fight with the squirt bottle. 😛 Oh and I found out that Marcel and Julia’s baby is due November 3rd, right on Keesje’s birthday! lol

“Dude. Mister Turtle is my father. The name’s Crush.”

My mom’s birthday is on Saturday and then on Sunday it’s Mother’s Day. I have to work late on Saturday so I thought I would give my mom her gift yesterday because she had the day off. She kept saying she didn’t want any presents so instead I bought her a delicious apple cinnamon pudding cake and fresh strawberries.

After I finished work I came home to let Destiny out, then ran over to Mom’s. She was outside in the backyard supervising while Krystal weedwacked. She was surprized I had brought her some treats. I convinced her to pick Keesje up from work at 5:30, which she did, and then back at her house she unwrapped Keesje’s gift–three floating lily pads for the pond in the backyard. They’re really cute. One of them has a bullfrog sitting on the lilypad, which we have named Bella; another has a bigger turtle with a baby one sitting on his back, so we called them Crush and Squirt (from Finding Nemo lol); and the third lilypad has a mommy turtle and two babies, and they are nameless at the moment.

For supper my mom barbequed chicken and I made tomato alfredo noodles and sliced up the strawberries. Nice how we just invited ourselves over for dinner, eh. 😉 We had the strawberries and apple cinnamon cake and chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream for dessert. I was so full yesterday I could hardly move. lol
