[M’s Birthday Dinner – and more] sheila mckay photography kids photography charlotte nc

I hesitated at the keyboard to think back to January 27, 2002 when my little M was born.  My hubby and I were a little different than many of our  friends in the fact that we wanted the surprise.  We did it for our first child and wanted to wait again for our second.   And pleasant surprises they were.  Now the surprise to us  is that 8 years have passed since we brought our beautiful baby girl home.

We celebrate birthdays around here for days I guess you could say.  M’s started last weekend with her ice skating party.  Then onto a small celebration at school – painting the school rock in honor of the birthday girl and cupcakes for everyone at lunch. 

 And believe it or not, the festivities continued.  Remember, M may have a career in event planning – she has planned everything, right down to her birthday dinner menu.  Her favorites:  Cheeseburger hamburger helper, green peas, and mom’s homemade mash potatoes!  Definitely not her brother’s favorite but as she pointed out , she was the birthday girl! 

Where is the birthday cake you ask?  We baked that last weekend.  Tonight, I attempted a recipe for Chocolate Molten Lava Cake.  An incredibly rich, warm, delicious, coma inducing chocolate, gooey, to die for decadent petite cake that our family loves to eat at Chili’s restaraunt.  If you have not tried it, you must.   (I will share a post about that soon – so stay tuned)

After we stuffed our tummies full , we had to move forward to gifts, as directed by M no less.    Nothing extravagant – small, girly things she loves but her favorite gift was her very own fish tank.  She was tired of having to watch her fish in her brother’s tank. 

I know what you are all thinking.  Wow, is she spoiled or what?  Maybe?  I did it all to make memories.   I am grateful to have birthdays and celebrate them together.  I am so thankful she asked for time with me to paint the rock, have lunch at school, help me cook dinner, and play Rock Band!   I am enjoying every minute because I know it won’t be like this for long.  Have you heard that song by Darius Rucker?  Take  a minute , and listen to the words.  I know so many of you can relate to it, just as I can.

[Hello 2010] sheila mckay photography charlotte nc photographer

Hello 2010!  Yes, I am still here.  Sorry to have been absent.  I got caught up in the holidays and enjoyed every minute with my family and had some time to catch up with family in the eastern part of NC.  A much needed visit too I must say.

Now that the holidays are over, I have been trying to organize myself at home and now on to business.  I have new things planned and will be announcing soon.  So stay tuned to my blog because I cannot wait to share it with you.

Now, just a cute snapshot of my Morgan (who I call Dr. Dolittle because she is always with a pet!) I thought noone could love pets as much as I do until Morgan came along.

[On idle] at the moment

Just a quick post from my son’s computer because my computer is sick.  Which, well – makes me sick.  Didn’t realize how lost I would feel without it.  Seems to be an appendage these days.  I am waiting for a new battery so I don’t have any new sessions to post today but will be back next week.  Enjoy the day – it is suppose to be beautiful!  And don’t forget to spring forward!
