In an effort to keep myself occupied during this insane wait, I've opted to spend some time (that I don't really have to spend) enjoying nature.....one of my favorite mental diversions. There is a nest of Eagles not far from our house. If you commonly see these majestic birds where you live you should consider yourself blessed. Until recently, a bald eagle sighting around here was very rare. I still stare in amazement when I catch a glimpse of one. I'm hoping to rent a good telephoto lens and get some better pics before the trees leaf out but here's one from this morning. It's pretty grainy since it's zoomed in quite a bit but still such a beautiful site!

9 years old! Wow! Where has the time gone? We celebrated with family yesterday. The birthday girl took it easy on me this year. She just wanted a cake that looked like the beach! The only way it could have been any easier is if she had asked for a white cake with white icing and no decorations. I borrowed Alison's bundt castle pan, colored some icing blue, made some fondant shells and some toothpick and colored paper flags and voila!
Happy Birthday Maria!!
We love you sweetheart!!
