A New Toy

Last night Kyle took me to dinner (Terra Mia, which I really liked.  And recommend.  The cookies n cream gelato especially!) and told me a secret.  Our tax refund was actually DOUBLE what he had told me it was!  We had been saving up for a nice camera, and I didn't expect to be able to buy it for a couple of months.  It was such a great surprise.  So we went home last night with this little beauty: a Nikon D3000 DSLR.  I have been playing with it ever since and it is SO FUN.  I don't understand anything but we're going to have a great time trying to figure it out.  

I've spent the day playing with Ruby:

Taking cute pictures of her and Katy:

Hanging out with Jennifer:

And loving little Timmy with my whole heart:

He is the cutest!  And I still don't know how to use this camera, obviously, but I will do my best to help it reach its potential.

The pictures look great!

Thanks for sharing! And that picture of Ruby is amazing. I can't believe how your at-home photos are now going to be professional grade. I guess we better start working on our taxes . . . :)

Timmy has gorgeous blue eyes-I don't think I would have noticed but for your AWESOME camera!

Finally! They invented a camera you can toss in the air and still take nothing but good pictures (assuming you didn't know anything when you took those pics). I can't wait until you're pro.

Those are really good! I've had my Canon Rebel four months now and still can't take a decent picture.
