Friday Pictures on Saturday

I did think twice about breaking out my computer tonight and actually doing a post...but quitting Nablopomofo? I decided against it and will bring you the pictures I promised...

These are from Thanksgiving Day and the Turkey Trot I did...here I come...
And here is a really not good shot of me, but it is actually the best I have. Ray and my Mom had actually just walked up and were about to cross a bridge over a lake to the finish line. I was pissed as I realized how far I was from the finish line. They did not have the miles marked for the race, and that was slightly frustrating.
And here is Ashley after her race...which she loved! They ended up with so many kids doing it, they broke it down my age, so she ran against other four year olds and did great. She was so proud of herself.
And this shot is from Thanksgiving dinner, obviously that's Audrey, Ray, me, my twin brother Mike and his wife Jen, and Ashley. Why Mike is making that face, I have no idea. Audrey is already realizing she will actually have to sit in a high chair for this meal and is pissed.
And this my friends, is my new toy. Hopefully my picture taking abilities will increase, although it might take years as I was given two DVDs and an instruction manual the size of a dictionary to read. And yes, I bought this for myself. I get a bonus in December and I know how much I am getting and this was too good of a deal to pass up on Black Friday. Merry Christmas to me...

Nice camera...so what did you finally decide on? Ray said he was mad at Mitch for talking you into another camera? Did you get the one with the two lenses?

Check out my pic :)

Good for you! Our good camera was the best investment we have ever made. We're about to do it again on a good camcorder since ours is 8 1/2 years old.
