My 17th Birthday

Well I have made it to seventeen. It has been a great day, I feel like a princess! I suppose that might have to do with the fact that all nine of my siblings seem to have made an effort to say "Happy Birthday" to me every five minutes or so. And whats a birthday without a birthday rose? So here is one of my favorite birthday vintage cards 

Later ~

We just finished having cake and presents, and guess what my parents decided to get me? A kitten! I'm so excited! They said I could pick her or him tomorrow (that is if I can find one) I wonder what I should call her/him? I have a couple of ideas, most of the names are from literary characters, but I am willing to hear any suggestions. I will post later with pictures of my kitten!

Coconut Cream Pie

 One of the pies I always noticed in the cookbook and wondered how you made it.So last week I decided to try and make it. It was alot harder then they made it look in the directions, it's something between a lemon meringue and a custard, but it turned out really well. Anyway here are the results.

Spring Snow

Not exactly two words you use together often, but as I was going to Mass I was particularly struck by how the green grass contrasted with the white of the snow, so when I got home I had some fun with my camera. I hope you will enjoy.
