Ana's Baby Shower

I am happy to say my sister is rich in family and friends, and I was lucky enough to throw her last shower, with the help of my sisters & Ana's best friend, Sarah Smith.

We had the house all decorated, and found some adorable balloons for the flowers.

We had a TON of food! This is the table before we got the hot food on, there were deviled eggs on the glass dishes, along with lumpia (thanks Evelin!) and fresh BBQ'd chicken and beef! Hey, we're a Romanian family, it does not count unless there is BBQ!

Look how cute Ana looks! She looks so good!! Opening gifts... here are letters that spell out Gabriel's name. Lizi painted them.

I love you gals! I feel so blessed by God when I think about my fabulous family.

And lets not forget... SARAH! Thanks for the help!

Award Winner!

I placed in the top six of our local photo contest at the California State Railroad Museum!

Last month I participated in the World Wide Photo Walk. Over 32,000 people met up around the world to take photos.

Our group (thanks to Dave Henry) got the exciting opportunity to photograph in the Calfornia State Railroad Museum BEFORE regular visitors came in, AND we got to use our tripods!!

Our photo walk group was the only group to have a print exhibit on display and have a local contest. The museum staff chose their favorites. I was in the top six (we won Canon camera gear) AND I had a second photograph get awarded an honorable mention.

This photograph placed me in the winner's circle. It's a passengar car.

This mail car shot was given an honerable mention.
