A Gift & My Camera Update & Happy Birthday Jacque!!

I participated in Pay It Forward by signing up for it at Pea's Corner many months ago. I had actually forgotten all about it after I sent along my 3 Pay It Forward gifts. Then last week in the mail I got this:

A lovely refrigerator magnet Teapot made by Pea her self. Isn't it just adorable. It even has a tea bag in it!!! The tag on it reads:

The Christmas Teapot - On Christmas Day at half past three, Brew yourself a cup of tea, And I'll think of you, While you think of me, Sitting beside the Christmas tree.

Pea, you can be sure that I will be drinking my cup of tea at half past three on Christmas day. Thanks so much and what fun!!!!

Well, guess what????? My co-worker at the Klothes Kloset ministry at church on Tuesday's found my old camera!!! It was in the storage room. We had been working in there for about 4 hours last Tuesday. Thelma needed to find a small piece of paper and while she was looking for that.....low and behold here was my camera.

At first I thought I'd just return the new one I'd just purchased but........I just love my new one. Mickey wanted me to keep it so I made him PROMISE that this new camera would be my Birthday & Christmas gift this year. After some arm twisting he finally agreed and I could not be more pleased. I told him I'd give it back so he could wrap it up and put it under the tree!!!!

My blog friend, Chrystal, suggested that I could take a picture of it by using a mirror. Now I would never have thought about that. Thanks Chrystal!!!

So here's my new little camera and me!!! Get a load of the manicured nails from Saturday's birthday celebration. By the way, the shirt says "Jingle" and has a bell on it. A gift to all the girls from Suzette. She was wearing her's in the picture's at the salon & cafe.

Just sharing fun stuff from the blogging world we all participate in and enjoy.


Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR DAUGHTER, JACQUE. As you know we celebrated all our birthdays on the 12th but today is her OFFICIAL day. Here's Jacque being greeted by her 1 year old sister, Suzette.

As a teenager.

I'm so glad that you like the little teapot magnet I made for your Pay It Forward gift:-) I had 6 to make and made them all different so that not one was the same. I will drink my tea on Christmas Day as well and think of you!!
