New Toy!

For many years I have wanted a camera that would take beautiful pictures. I have tried several different point and shoot cameras but was never really satisfied. My friend Carisa, who is an absolute genius in taking photos, has encouraged me to save my pennies and purchase an SLR digital camera - that's what she uses to take her gorgeous photos. Between the community yard sale held at Milford Park Bible Camp and the things I sold at the SEARCH Conference I was able to save up those pennies and purchase my camera. I was going to use the money to purchase a few things for the house, but Andy said we would likely never have this much money saved up at one time and that I should go ahead and purchase the camera. He is also excited to be able to get some decent ministry shots.
I started to play around with the camera tonight and this is what I have come up with so far.
I have a lot to learn, like editing and how to actually take beautiful pictures, but I am excited to be able to learn something new. I hope to become as good as my friend Carisa, but I doubt I will ever have the eye that she does. It will be fun trying though!
Do you like Daniel's shiner in the first photo? He got that a few days ago while he was playing up at church. Walked right into a table! He is so like his sister - she was ALWAYS bruising her eyes because she was bumping into things. It is also amazing that he is smiling in these photos. You would never know he has been running a fever of 102-103 all day today. I am hoping he is healed by tomorrow as we are having a family birthday party for all three kids and my nephew tomorrow. Please pray he gets better quickly!
