Birthday Pics and Artist Prints

We celebrated Anthony and Rosalie's Birthday this weekend. Since their birthdays are a month apart they have to share their special day, but they do not mind.

My husband made pork burritos with his tomatillo sauce that I LOVE.

I made a Rachel Ray black bean and corn salad that I totally recommend. I only changed one thing. I replaced the red peppers with cilantro. I love cilantro.

We also made a sangria that is suppose to be close to Seville's sangria. There was a whole bottle of Rum in it. It was very good. Can anyone spot a print from a well known artist? Yes, it is Flor Larios and her Byzantine Madonna and Child. I think it looks perfect over at my wine station.

Oh, and who is over in my bookcase??
Correct again! Julie Fillo and her Three Bears. I love how it matches my 'Gone with the Wind' book.

Rose wanted us to dress alike. Of course Foster made a bed of mine before I could put it on. Why do cats do that?!

So he had to find a new bed. Can you find him in the garden?

There he is!

We had a snake tamer at the party.
No, not really.
Just our family animal expert, Karlee. She found this little snake and let the kids pet it.

Make a wish!

Hi Jen,
This is me again, Flor.
I wanted to ask you if I can use the photo with my print on the frame as a sample of how my prints look framed. If it is ok. with you I will use it on my Etsy shop.
And I planning on putting my prints on sale soon...I might use the photo on my blog too (I can add your link to your blog and mention that you took the photo)if it is ok. with you.
