Pudding Camera + A Hawk

This morning, while husband was drinking his coffee and looking out the kitchen window, he saw a hawk as it perched on the neighbor’s satellite dish.  He yelled for the family to come look so I grabbed the camera and ran toward the kitchen.

The hawk stayed there for about 2 hours!  Instead of taking Teddy out back to potty, we took her to the front.  We didn’t want the hawk to take off with her, even on a leash.

Pudding Camera Review

Pudding Camera App for Android is my newest love.  I’ve always liked that dreamy glowy look and this app is amazing at creating it.  Below are some examples.  I haven’t used all the different cameras and filters.

Mother’s Day

Went to my 5-year-old’s Mother’s Day Tea Party at her preschool earlier today.  She was so excited when she told me about it last week, but on this day, she showed no excitement at all.  It was still a 99 on her scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).

Got a card and chocolates from husband.  We both are upgrading our phones to androids so that was my gift.  I can’t wait to get it!  Finally, a phone with a much better camera.  I’ve been dying to play with Instagram.

Friday, got a wrapped gift from Kida and she begged me to open it right away (as soon as she got in the car when I picked her up from school) and beautiful flowers from my youngest sister and her boyfriend.

Saturday  (It was actually on Sunday), we celebrated Mother’s Day for Mom.  I made a card for her using papers and elements from the “Moment In Time” kit.

Mom also got flowers from my sister.

I couldn’t resist getting a shot of this bird from her flowers.  🙂

The Nest

There is a nest by the front door up in the corner.  When it gets windy this nest gets blown out of place and lands by the door.  A new one always gets built right a way.

This all started last spring.

And, like last spring, an egg either falls out or gets pushed off, and makes a mess on the porch.
