My New baby

I realize I am no a sales pitch for my new Canon baby yet. In fact I am pretty sure the manufactures of this camera would like me to stop posting pictures. At least until I figure out what the heck I am doing. I don't know what I am doing yet. That is a certainty. I will learn though.
My favorite test subjects are the little people around here. Mark has not figured out mommy's new camera yet either. My old camera beeped when it was focused properly. My new camera has a mute button. Poor kid can't figure out if I am taking pictures of him or not.
He really didn't want to have his picture taken at all. Oh I like me a mute button.

In addition to the mute button here is another thing I like. I like a good zoom. I can sit out of the way and just take pictures of what they are doing without interferring with the natural progression of things. I like that.

What do you think she is looking at?

Just the crazy boy around here who did decide to have his picture taken after all.

I hope we didn't get any snot on your screen. We are fighting yet another illness in a long line of colds this year. Could you tell from the red checks in the above pictures? Mark missed his second day of school in a row yesterday. That boy was bumming. Hopefully Monday finds him back in the classroom.

Ellyn these are awesome!
I need a new camera, which canon did you get?
Does it take videos too?
Mute works best for the dogs also, you know how Tasha is with a beep. She gets so neurotic!

Too cute! The one of Mark trying to figure out the camera is too funny. Mark would make a great Christopher Robin in a Winnie-the-Pooh play. I couldn't put my finger on it, but it hit me today .... he reminds me of Christopher Robin.

Keep your eye out .... your Mom said she's taking the weekend off to get things done but I think she's sneaking up to get her hands on your camera .... or at least tell you how to run it! ; )
