Mom: Happy 8th Birthday to Madi

Today March 11, 2010 is Madi's 8th Birthday....

Please celebrate with us!!!!




Lucky Chinese Eminent Eight Game
In January, Mom and I were tagged by Kareltje, a very handsome man-cat and his Mom, Anya from The Netherlands to participate in this game. If you have not met them please drop by to say HI. They have a fantastic Blog and Anya prepares very creative posts and writes lovely poetry.
At the time Mom was tagged, she had been trying to think of something interesting to do in celebration of my 8th birthday, March 11, 2010. Whala what great timing, this tag is perfect.
We wrote to Kareltje and his mom telling them we would like to postpone our participation until today March 11, 2010....

  33. My advise on the camera is get a Canon. Canon's make great pictures.Easy to learn how to use too.
