A Bit of This and That

I can't believe it has been two weeks since my last post. Life really has a way of getting away from you. I have been trying to organize all my pictures and prepare some for printing. Walmart had a sale so I needed at least 200 to take advantage of the 12 cents a print.

Thank heavens my husband is the king of organizing his pictures. I went through all of our Egypt Photos and he had them all in folders by date and where they were taken. Believe me, this made it so much easier to find the ones I wanted. I am long past due getting my album together since we took this trip at the end of October.

Here are a few of the Egypt pictures

The Great Pyramids with Cairo in the background. The city has 12 million people living in it and has extended right up to the Pyramids.

A photo taken from our ship as we were sailing between Dendara and Luxor. The banks of the Nile are very lush, but beyond is all sand. In the forground is a felucca

Thursday we celebrated my grandson's 10th birthday Three of my Boys

And last, but not least, two baby fairies that attended my Fairy and Wizard Party last July. (another album that needs finishing and now I have the pictures printed)

WOW! You've been to EGYPT! How fabulous is that! When I went to college, I was roommates with a girl who lived in Cairo when she was growing up (her father worked at the US Embassy). Such a fabulous place!
Those fairy babies are precious!
