On the day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

I never really posted about Christmas, which means I missed out on telling you what my sweet hubby surprised me with this year. He got me this:
It's fabulous. It takes great pictures, it's easy to figure out (perfect for someone techno-stupid like me), and it FITS IN MY PURSE. I capitalized that because that really excites me, people. We've had a really good camera for years actually, and it's always done a fine job of picture-taking, and still does. However, it is fairly good-sized-- with a huge, honkin', stick on the top flash that is about two feet tall (I might be exaggerating a bit, true). It's perfect for Jeremy, who likes to take really good pictures, but not ideal for a mommy like me who just wants ease and accessibility to capture all those wonderful little moments that happen everywhere-- at the park, in the grocery store, at a friend's house, out to coffee. Not to mention, now that I'm trying to keep up this blog, the pictures are even more in demand. A camera is a blogger's best friend (well, that, and the ability to write :))! So yes, you will be seeing more pictures on here of the silly little everyday things that make life interesting or funny; because now I have an easy way to capture them.

I hope it doesn't sound like I'm bragging about my new little toy, or the fact that I was given such a nice Christmas present (I certainly don't deserve it). What I'm really trying to show is that I have a very thoughtful, sweet husband who knows my silly little "wants" and likes to surprise me with them when he can. After all, you know what one of my favorite things about this camera is? The fact that this picture greeted my eyes when I first turned it on:

Isn't he cute???

Hi Talia-thanks for poppin in on my blog--I think I've seen your name end up a few places, so we must know some of the same people! Congrats on your digial elf! I also have it, though I confess that my photography skills are quite lacking.
Funny that you mentioned you have 2 girls--When I was pregnant with Ollie I wanted a girl so badly, but when they handed him to me, it was love at first sight. Besides, I have 10 neices(no nephews) so I get to buy dresses for them:)

Yay! You have needed a small camera for a long time. That camera you had was HUGE! Mommies need little portable cameras! How nice to get something you really wanted for Christmas. Your husband is very thoughtful. :)
