A post from an Old Lady!!!

I don't really think that 26 is old but it is odd to be over a quarter of a century old. One advantage of being of progressing years, I am finally old enough to have a kick A camera! I got my Nikon D80!!!!! I love her a ridiculous amount!

The day before my birthday Ty set a little savager hunt up for me. It started with a note from "Nikki Nikon" and stated that she was an immigrant from Japan and had been captured by I.C.E and need my help to get here. The funny part is, when we woke up, Scout jumped up on the bed and I was playing with her collar and pulled it off of her (its funny to see how crazy she gets when you take it) and there was a clue taped to the inside. This was before the hunt even began so Ty quickly took it from my and sent Scout away. One of the clues was also inside of Blue's collar. That one was a bit more difficult because he thought we were playing and just ran away from me!! I spent the whole day playing with my new camera!

Now being home all day by myself, what do you think I took pictures of? Thats right, the pups! I did venture out just a tiny bit but not much. Too cold!
There was even another suprise for me!!!! When my grandparents died several years ago, I got all of there china. Nothing terrible impressive, but it was theres. Its been in boxes wrapped in newsprint in my parents attic. My father lovingly told me to come get the rest of my crap as they were cleaning out so it has been in our garage. Well, Ty did one of the most thoughtful things ever! He made me this oak chest to store all of it. Its seriously beautiful!!! He even went and got pictures from my mom of me as a little kid with each of my grandparents and in layed them to the inside of the lid under plastic. I totally don't remember this but I guess that we went for a walk with my grandpa when I was little and came across this dead branch and I INSISTED that we take it home and plant it as a tree! That is one of the pictures.
And......here are some pool balls???? Random, I know!

That chest for your china is amazing. I think Ty should get the Thoughtful Man of the Year Award for that one! It's beautiful.
