We have a new addition to our family! This has been a long awaited addition. We (and by "we" I mean "I convinced Russ somehow") have been wanting a nice camera for a while, and I guess it took being robbed to get us there. That and I am celebrating Christmas for the next few years early. :)  Thanks again, Russ! We figured while we were needing to replace the camera that had been taken from our home, we might as well get a camera that we actually love rather than another point-and-shoot that Russ would hear constant complaining about. (Have you started to catch on that Russ earns many points in heaven on a daily basis??)

The final decision was to go with a Cannon Rebel XS. It's nothing super-duper fancy (as far as DSLR cameras go), but after much advise from fellow camera-loving friends, this would be a great start to a complete novice like me. I know nothing about cameras or photography. I repeat -- nothing. Looks like I have a few manuals, books, and websites to read. And you, my readers, will get to witness me messing up learning how to take pictures. We've all got to start somewhere, right?

WOW! Great job so far! I can tell the picture quality is so much better! I am jealous! :)

Jealousy, thou art my name! Oh, curse the Christmas season, that it come but once a year!

I'm grateful for my piano. But let me tell you...if I had been able to convince Dave that we "needed" a dslr, I would have been hard pressed to decide between the two.

Maybe I should leave my window open...if I get robbed, I could probably take the opportunity to upgrade cameras... Nice strategy, Camille!

SPOILED!!! Wow, you lucky girl... I have broken camera, but I can't talk my husband into even a new regular one. He says we should just buy disposable ones from now on. He's crazy. Good job, way to go, good for you!

Haha Jessie that cracks me up. One time on vacation our camera battery died and Russ just suggested buying/using disposables. I'm guessing the look of disapproval I gave him convinced him to never suggest such an idea again :)

Russ way to be a good husband...the next thing you could do to be EVEN BETTER is to send her to NYC next summer. Pretty please.
