My new toy!

My birthday was last week. Actually, it was the 10th. I turned 37. Honestly I don't believe I'm 37 because I just turned 17 last year!!! :)

I have wanted a new camera for soooooooooooooooo long! And anyone who is my Facebook friend (God help them) listened to me agonize over which camera to buy for M O N T H S! And worse than my Facebook friends, my poor husband had to listen to me every. single. day. He must REALLY love me, that or really like to be tortured! Well I finally made a decision, fearing Christmas would come and go with no camera. I went with the Nikon D90! And while I have A L O T to learn, I am having fun with it.

Like for instance, I would have missed this shot if I didn't make a decision. This is Miss Moo moo after she discovered chocolate cake in the garbage. Yes, mother of the year award on that one. I couldn't imagine why she was ever so quiet. So did I stop her? Clean her up? NO, I took a picture! :)

And love the clarity of this picture of my chocolate covered cupcake! So I then moved her hair away from her eyes so you could see her boogers along with her chocolate covered face! Oh yes, pure art! LOL I'm having fun, can you tell?

So the moral of this story is, if your thinking of upgrading to a DSLR, DO IT!!! you will not regret it!

I envy you with that camera.....I want one but don't really know how to use more than a point & shoot.

What a litle cutie...I'm sure she'll provide lots of picture taking opportunities....let them eat cake, after all they grow up so fast.

Happy birthday!
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Merry Christmas,

I got that exact same camera for Christmas. Now I just need to find the time to learn how to use. LOL...I took 100 pictures of my cereal bowl this morning using all the features of the camera.
