I got a baby for my birthday!!

But not the kind that keeps you up at night and makes you change diapers.....

this kind of baby

Ahhh, my lovely husband said that I work hard all year and take such good care of our children and him that he splurged and went with the one gift he knew I really wanted. Did I ever say I love him?? I am not a very materialistic person, but I have so loved my camera for the past few years, and got full value for it many times over, but newer and better was out there, and now it's in here.

Ok, so chances are you may be saying "um, it looks just like the old one". NOPE! Ok, first it has a massive digital screen on the back (guess I should have taken a photo of that) - which is so nice for scrolling through pics and you can take photos looking at the screen on this one (that will come in handy when someone else is using my camera and can't figure out how to look through the view finder!)

More importantly, the mega pixals are HUGE like really big!! My old camera - 8. The new one...18!!! Crop away I will do without losing anything! Oh how I laugh at my first 3mp and thinking how great was that.

Oh ya, and one more awesome feature....can you say HD Video?? YES I CAN! You see, I drag my camera everywhere. Skiing, walking, vacation, playground, parties, dinner, everywhere. All over the place while our video camera sits at home. Now it's all in one. How awesome!!

From the amount of exclamation marks, you may be able to tell I am a little excited. But Chris and the kids were not the only ones to spoil me. I got lots of treasures from my family, and money to spend on things that I want (hmmm, thinking new lens, maybe a flash....and of course some scrapping supplies).

So expect lots of new posts with lots of new photos and video. Fun times. I think she needs a name, so if you have a suggestion, let me know.
