My new camera is here!

I never knew how much I used my camera! It has been broken for 8 days. I can't tell you how many times I reached for it...grabbed it, then did the "duh"'s not working.

Yesterday I got a call from UPS that said that a package was going to be delivered today from 8AM-7PM.....okay, I know I all I do is stay home with the kids...but MAN, I am not home all day. It is more like

*take Will to school

*go to Walmart to get what we need for that muffin Monday

*go to the library

*go back to get Will

I am not home all day. So today I made a point to stay at home. I even asked kind neighbor S if she would sign for my package if UPS came while I was out getting Will to and from school. That is really the only thing I HAD to leave the house for today. So Livi and I come our house blessing.. <---Flylady thing in case you are wondering. I even did the Kitchen Mission since I was stuck at home. Let me tell you there is not a chair rail or baseboard that isn't spotless!

Anyhow.....when did the UPS guy come?? 6:45 PM while I was getting the kids ready for bed.

I was sure the battery would need to be charged...but surprisingly it was charged! Whew hoo....

NOTE to self: do NOT take pictures of the kids with a flash ten minutes before they are to be in bed. It only winds them up and makes for a cranky bedtime routine. Yes, it is bedtime around here. My kids are usually in bed asleep by 7:30-8:00 at the latest.

Here are the ones I snapped off pretty quickly:

After this one, I told Will to give Livi a hug...

I get both looking at the camera, but Will looks like the deer in the headlights....but you can really see how blue his eyes far I am loving my new camera!!

By now you can see the full blown "I'm wired and not going to calm down" look. He said he was still hugging her. Looks more like a choke hold to me.

I can't wait to play around with it a bit more. I need to get a bigger memory card. The one I have is ancient and filled up after less than 45 pictures.

happy Tuesday

I'm a flybaby too!! I don't know what I'd do without her! Congrats on the camera. There is nothing like capturing those moments on film. Beautiful children!

Congrats on on the new camera! I'd be lost without mine. You know, I once drowned a camera as well...once it dried out, it worked fine. So...*maybe* you have two cameras now!

Your hanging basket turned out really cute, I'm going to have to try my hand at that...I don't really have all that great of a track record with plants though....

And, you tagged me! LOL I'll have to get to that in a day or two.

(can you tell I'm doing a major catch up day here?)

WOWZAH I love it. I can't wait to see more of your photography work and what all you camera has to offer.

congratulations on the new camera. I have the green light to order mine, but I'm afraid of that much commitment. I kind of wish my current DSLR would break so I'd be forced to get my new one (silly, I know)
