This is What Came out of my Camera

So I finally took in that roll of film that I finished at my tea party last week. (make sure to go back down and check out those pics) I was so curious what pictures would be on it since I knew it had been in the camera for a really long time. Apparently more than two years. And nothing is remotely connected to anything else. So here is a lovely post about random pictures.



This is Simon. Simon is fron Australia. This is Simon at his birthday party. I believe he was 29 here as we just celebrated his 30th this year. Simon is going to be a daddy soon. He and his wife are in our small group and just found out it's going to be a boy. I'm hoping they'll teach him to have an Australian accent.




Here are some very sweet kittens we fostered about a year and a half ago. We named them Tiger, Sweet Pea, Grandpa, and that other black cat. Ok, so I only remember three names. Their new names are Hobbes, Cloe and Colby. Those three got to stay together and love their new home. It has been far too long since we have fostered any kittens.



Here is Andy working last fall on the remodel of our Coolest Bathroom Ever. While removing carpet, linoleum and particle board, we found a secret trap door in the floor. Unfortunately we had to tile over this excellent feature, but it was fun while it lasted. Why was there a trap door under our flooring, you may ask? We assume it was installed to hide the pirate booty. That seems the most logical.









The garden picture is from two summers ago. Our first summer in our current house. My tomatoes growing over the back fence. Peas and beans and broccoli growing in the front of the garden.

I cannot wait to plant again this year!




And here we have Christmas from two years ago. Our very scrawny, spindly Christmas tree. And our three kitties. Who look like they are having oh so much fun being squished together.




Finally, we have a picture I just took of the stained glass window in my dressing room. A friend gave it to me in exchange for a toilet. I know that sounds weird, but she was looking to get rid of this anyway, and we were replacing our toilet, she needed a new toilet, so we were both very happy with our trade!



And that, my friends is my random roll of film. I spared you the crappy doubles and bad shots. Be thankful. And shout praises to the mountaintops for the creation of digital cameras. I know I have.

I like the trap door in the bathroom idea. Great for quick escapes...or surprise entrances!

That picture of the kittens was the most adorable thing I have ever seen in my entire life!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish we could still get to the trap door, but I do like my new floor anyway! :)

Grandpa was the one who, when he was a kitten, had crazy white whiskers and random white hairs all over his face. He is now known lovingly as "Colby-Jack! You get down from that table!" He is also known for peeing behind my entertainment center.

They are darn cute...now they're all grown up...

and they're cute as buttons, even when Chloe is hissing. All these C names. Clara, Cammi, Colby Jack, Chloe. Iggy and Hobbs...what happened? :)

anne said...

Those are the two that are the most alike too! Those kitties...

Haha, I remember the days of "what the heck is on this roll of film?" The trap door is awesome! Too bad it had to be covered up.

I had a film that I had forgotten and when we finally developed it, it was from almost 5 years ago. Hilarious! Nowadays with digital cameras, the film version ones don't get used as much!
