I had that little Kodak for 3 years, 2 1/2 of which were on borrowed time. I beat the snot out of that camera I did it mostly because I am that mom. The one who always has her camera at the ready to capture whatever cute thing my kids are doing at that point in time.
Without a camera the past few months (aside from my awful quality cell phone cam) has left my poor hands twitching. But now that Christmas is behind us, I was finally able to get my new toy. (Because I just couldn't buy a fancy new camera when I was busy buying for everyone else. This mom is on a budget.)
Meet my Cannon Rebel T2i. We're in love. I'm pretty sure Mike is jealous because I'm having an affair with my new camera. But the relationship is still new so the novelty hasn't worn off yet. Although I'm not sure it ever really will. Mike will have to adapt.
I've wanted a dslr camera forever. Now that it's here I'm going to have to find some other thing to aspire to own for the next five years, but I'm too in love with my current large purchase to focus on my next one. I won't be opening any photography businesses any time soon though.(because the book that came with this baby is HUGE and it's going to take me forever to learn how to shoot this baby outside of on auto)
Man oh man are my scrapbooks going to look cool from here on out!
Excuse me, I have to go dress my kids in something cute and take some more pictures now.
