About Me

My photo
Thank you for visting my blog. When I started this blog, it was just the vehicle for which I had hoped to share photos of our life in Chicagoland with our loved ones, but it has turned into so much more for me. Life is ever evolving in our household and time no longer stands still. Every moment is precious and worthy of being captured and treasured. In addition, through my love of the camera, I have had the opportunity to meet and also capture moments in others' lives. It is my hope, with this blog, that when my memory fails me, the words and photos on this blog will remind of where we were. History...Through My Glass...

ro ro birthday recap

Roan's birthday invite. I used a template that I found on ILP.
He cooperated for about two minutes.

The day of the party was cloudy and cool. In the sun, it was nice, but we were under canopies so for some of us, who went hoping for sun; it was a bit cold.

It was a wonderful location, but I was not able to take any pictures as I was hosting. The following pictures were taken by my friend, Christine, and I processed them. They are not technically mine, but I watermarked them for her protection.

Above: presents are starting to pile up.
Above: Appetizers.
Above: this was Roro's expression the whole morning. He had the majority of his cousins and friends with him.
Above: more smiles from the birthday boy.

Above: Mommy cutting the cake. I bought a cake from Costco and made a sailboat cake, but we didn't get a picture of the cake...or the favors...or the canopy...or the giant pizzas. :( Very sad.
Roan's most favorite thing in the world...CAKE!
It was cold.
