Earlier this week, Greg had asked if he could go out for a while (yes, we do ask each other permission to leave the house alone because leaving one parent alone with the kids could potentially turn dangerous - for the parent left behind). Anyway, I asked him if it involved shopping for my birthday gift and when he told me yes, I told him Of course you can go out shopping for my birthday gift! Anytime!
He ended up coming back a while later to get the kids (a bonus early birthday gift?!) and they all left for a pretty long time.
Flashforward to to Saturday......after an incident in which Alexandra announced what my gift was (NO! I did not hear......not sure why, but I didn't) Greg and I were talking about how the kids cannot keep a secret to save their lives. I then started asking questions about the gift: What shape is the box? How heavy is it? Had I said at some point that I wanted one? The suspense was killing me!
So, after about 3 1/2 seconds of trying, he talked me into opening my gift early, saying that it was a pretty useful gift and I might even be able to use it ON my actual birthday. Well, OK. Yay!
This is what I got:
It's a pretty small picture, but you should get the point: I got a new camera!!
It's TOTALLY AWESOME!!
It's much too advanced for me, has more functions than I can possibly use, takes fantastic photographs, and did I mention: it's TOTALLY AWESOME!!
This is one of the first pictures I took with it:
My favorite part about it so far is it blurs backgrounds for me. Oh, my other favorite part is that it will shoot 3 frames per second. Oh, I also like that the colors are so pretty in the picutres. And oh, did I mention: it's TOTALLY AWESOME!!
Happy Birthday to Me! :)
